Ideas in Writing

By Philip Holden
It's about words, written and read, maybe spoken out loud in person, on stage, or recorded.
Presented (mostly) by Philip Holden.
Long form chats with creators and users of words - pretty relaxed - just you and us.
In these chats the guest brings a word and so does Philip - and thereby hangs a tale...

Quodlibet/Craft with Tom Carradine
Hello, I'm Philip Holden and in this episode I talk to Tom Carradine, a dapper chap who is well known for his Cockney Singalong. Tom's word of the episode is quodlibet (no, me neither) while mine is craft, which I think suits the skill and talent Tom brings to the podcast. In this this chat Tom talks about his experience in the pit of West End musicals and as a piano entertainer - preserving and sharing great songs from over a century ago right up to the present day(ish). We discuss what makes a funny and engaging song - and how come we all know the chorus. You can find lots of Tom's work at - www.tomcarradine.com and www.carradinescockneysingalong.co.uk. Look for his singalong on Facebook and/or tomcarradinepianist and follow him on Twitter @tomcarradine Ideas in Writing is produced with the support of Mr Books Bookshop in Tonbridge - the home of inspiring, imaginative and intelligent books, gifts and conversation.

Journey/Palimpsest with Ian Tucker-Bell
Hello, I'm Philip Holden and in this episode I talk to Ian Tucker-Bell writer and composer. In the vein of Ready Steady Cook, Ian brings along his ingredient - the word journey whilst I offer mine; the pretentious palimpsest. So the conversation reflects how our own experiences inevitably shine through in writing and performance and how, even though you might want to escape it, sometimes you just have to embrace it. We also talk about forthcoming projects and plans. You can see and hear Ian’s work online via the Viral Theatre Festival website www.ViralFestival.net and at the OrangeWorks and on SoundCloud.
