A podcast with Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales
A peripatetic podcast in which Leigh Sales and Annabel Crabb discuss what they're reading, watching, cooking, listening to or irrationally exhilarated by.
One of them likes show tunes and is a monster who chucks books once she's read them. The other one wrote this.
There is only one channel working on the Medieval Contraceptive Recording Device, but this does not stop the monsters. They huddle together to chat on one microphone. Crabb makes a delicious Cauliflower Soup for Sales which initiates a discussion on the Jerusalem Artichoke scale of flatulence. They both ponder writing fiction versus non-fiction and various writing processes. Despite forgetting to record half the discussion, there is almost a full episode!
They were late, highly stressed and exhausted, yet Crabb and Sales still managed to rabbit on enough to generate a second episode of guff. Unstoppable monsters! (Brisbane, Tivoli Theatre, 12 May 2018)

Crabb gives Sales a nightie offering neck to ankle coverage, seemingly some sort of plot to consign Sales to a lifetime of celibacy. In response, Sales serves Crabb the arse of a bunny rabbit. The conversation takes a serious turn into what it means to have a good death.
Sales has been staying up half the night devising her own script for the final season of The Americans. Crabb declares Sales is never to read bedtime stories to her children after she discovers the full darkness of Sales’ imagination. With the Sydney Writers’ Festival coming up, the cult leaders have plenty of reading suggestions.
