Aurora Calling - ABC podcast

Hi. I've been a bit discombobulated the last few days - lots on - and it's that time of year, I guess. 

A reminder that Catherine Ryan's emotionally & atmospherically charged radio play Aurora Calling: the results of a Joint Observation is now available online as a podcast. You can tune in to it here on ABC's website. Pour yourselves a dram, a glass of wine or cup of tea and prepare to disappear into this intensely absorbing drama. I first mentioned it on Ice Lines about two weeks ago, listened to it for the first time last night and didn't leave my seat (other than to top up my glass!) for the hour and a bit it was playing. 

It's as much a sensory experience as a satisfying, edgy drama. Enjoy!


  1. oh claire, thank you, it's so kind of you to mention it. I can certainly understand your discombobulation - thinking of where you've been, and what you've been doing and thinking - and then returning to a more familiar, but so different place ... thinking of you as those combobs disentangle... xx catherine (still can't get my passwork right!)

  2. Hi Catherine - I love your term 'as those combobs disentangle'! It's been lovely having this dialogue with you over the past weeks, thank you. And your play is so very easy to (re)commend: it's marvelous, original and adventurous - in concept, language & style (to name a few!). Congrats. It must be amazing to hear something you've written come to life like this. Love to you, Claire XX
