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.
Live event - recorded at Her Majesty's Theatre in Adelaide, Friday 9 February.
Sales finally gives the verdict on her visit to Blue Hill Farm restaurant in New York or as it's known among chatters The Carrot Restaurant. Also discussed: Martin Amis’ essays and Rachel Cusk’s earlier book Aftermath.
Crabb and Sales compare impressive bruises and then ponder if you should immediately ice a badly bumped bum. Thankfully the chat moves on to discussion about The Crown and some recent Churchill films. Sales also reveals her somewhat controversial opinion on Meryl Streep!
Sales and Crabb look back at the best of 2017. Recorded live at Llewellyn Hall, ANU on Sat 9 December.
[Recorded pre-McCartney] Much to their excitement both Crabb and Sales successfully Google “literary page turner” (or LPT for short). The Drover's Wife is deconstructed and there are plenty of puns about Murder on the Orient Express.
