Now – as you probably know, as well as the usual platforms (this site, soundcloud, iTunes/Apple) you can get to Sweetman Podcast on Spotify – follow it there and have it saved in your Spotify library. It’s on most of the podcast platforms besides the ones mentioned here.
This week I had a chat with Catherine Robertson. I was thrilled to finally get to do this – we talked about it before the lockdown, then it all got thrown off course. So, on a recent trip to the Hawke’s Bay – where Catherine now lives – we reconnected and had this chat.
It’s a huge talk – and I loved it, we went through some of her books and talked a lot about writing, we also gave a couple of plugs to the bookstore she co-owns, Good Books.
But we started off talking about art – in particular the work of Matthew Couper, a friend of mine – and a friend of the podcast – click that link and you’ll see he was episode 9.
From there the conversation goes all over the map – across countries and in and around the work of several authors. We touch on film and music too. And talk about criticism and book reviewing.
An epic conversation – the kind I love.
It’s my hope you’ll love this one too.
