TRR: Episode 40, “Ursa Minor”



Poor little Ursa Minor, so worthy of our respect, but so overshadowed by his more famous companion, Ursa Major. Just like people in everyday life, which is the topic of Zephine Humphrey’s essay about the marginalized little constellation.

TRR: Episode 1, “Sleep” (Pilot)



Hello!

I’ve wanted to do spoken word/oral interpretation for a long time, and finally decided to have a go. It’s been a long time since I did any podcasting on my own, so I’m a bit rusty, but it’s coming along. Consider this a sort of pilot, then.

In this, the inaugural episode of The Reader Reads, we take a short look at the subject of sleep, and sample the writings of both William Ernest Henley and Leolyn Louise Everett, and then close with Richard le Gallienne’s “Seaports of the Moon.”
