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.
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.
Sales can’t stop thinking about sea-monster egg farts. Meanwhile Crabb is excited by shooting stars and symmetry. Is Eddie Redmayne on track to be the next Chat 10 Looks 3 boyfriend?
The wretches have a go at each other: Crabb disrespects Sales’ Buns, so Sales retaliates by offering her opinion on Crabb’s Finnish book. Is this the end of Chat 10 Looks 3 as we know it? A sudden ending to the event leads to some innovative audio experimentation!
Crabb is angry about her pen situation and Sales describes her fury when a pedestrian spat at her car. Garner interrupts the chat by sending through a text message, CLANG! Lots of new reading recommendations plus the annual AFL name roundup.
Live event - recorded at Her Majesty's Theatre in Adelaide, Friday 9 February.
