Podcast Episode #4: We’re Back!

April 10, 2014 Podcast 0


Welcome to the 4th episode of the Tea in the Treetops podcast hosted by myself and Angelya.

We are back from a super long hiatus where we both had babies and now they may feature in these podcasts as background noise (sorry!).  Of course after we completely gave up on there never being a child free time to record this podcast between toddlers, babies and our own desperate need for sleep, typically the day after recording we caught up for coffee and this happened:

maddie and evie asleep

Well played babies, well played!

In any case in this episode we talk all things books, bookish events and book to movie adaptations! Please bear with us as we get back into the podcasting groove and try out a new, in-person recording style. It’s a bit more casual than previous episodes but we like how it turned out.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear your feedback – anything you would like us to talk about in particular? Just let us know!

You can listen to past episodes of the podcast, as well as the various ways to subscribe on the main podcast page.

The music in this episode is titled Sea of Dreams and has been used with the kind permission of the composer, Bart Stoop. You can hear more of Bart’s beautiful music at facebook.com/BartStoop.
