a podcast treat

Feb 14, 2016

One of the advantages of driving a lot these days is that technology provides an easy abundance of audio entertainment with a wide range of podcasts. On the way back to Hawarden from Hanmer Springs’ Mass last night I listened to Radio NZ’s Kim Hill in conversation with Yann Martel.

The interview is a real treat.

Martel is the author of the remarkable 2003 bestseller, later a movie Life of Pi, (the bengal tiger and a boy named Pi) and his latest work The High Mountains of Portugal, (again featuring anthropomorphised animals)

You might appreciate the interview as I did at this link: “Philosophy, Spirituality and a Chimpanzee.”
