Podcast episode 1:Welcome, catch up and judging others

Trying something new! Introducing my first podcast – now you can listen to me on the go rather than read my drivel.

This is a bit longer than I’d normally like to do because I had to squeeze in several things but I’m hoping that I’ll do a lot more posts doing podcasts than I’ve been able to manage doing written posts.

I chose the opening and closing snippets having heard this classic track in the pub recently and musing over the irony that actually video tape is long gone but radio continues to flourish. Great song but, in the end, video DIDN’T kill the radio star. How often in life we think we know how things are going to pan out but years later we can look back and find it didn’t go that way at all.

My first attempt and, yes, rough and ready and full of ‘erms’ but hopefully I’ll get better! Please do let me know what you think 🙂

 

International speaker, educationalist, bestselling author and journalist D K Powell is the author of the bestselling collection of literary short stories “The Old Man on the Beach“. His first book, ‘Sonali’ is a photo-memoir journal of life in Bangladesh and has been highly praised by the Bangladeshi diaspora worldwide. Students learning the Bengali language have also valued the English/Bengali translations on every page. Two new books coming out over summer – don’t miss them!

Both ‘The Old Man on the Beach’ and ‘Sonali’ are available on Amazon for kindle and paperback. Published by Shopno Sriti Media.

D K Powell is available to speak at events (see his TEDx talk here) and can be contacted at dkpowell.contact@gmail.com

About D K Powell

British freelance journalist, author, writer, editor, musician, educational consultant. I lived with Wifey, Thing I (daughter) & Thing II (son) in Bangladesh for 5-6 years working for an NGO called LAMB. Wifey led the Hospital Rehab department and I used to teach O levels at the school before going full-time as a freelance writer in 2013. Now we're back in the UK learning how to be British again. When not writing or editing, I'm busy trying to complete a Masters degree in Intercultural relations in Asian Contexts and reading way too many books at once. I also drink tea - lots of it.
