In September 2020, I launched the Tall And True Short Reads podcast, featuring short stories written and narrated by me that I’ve published over the years on the Tall And True writers’ website. My goal with the podcast was to share and showcase something I love doing, writing, on a medium I also love, podcasting.
As I explained in the Welcome trailer for the podcast, reading and writing are lifelong passions. I wrote and self-published my first book, Sand Island, an Enid Blyton-Famous Five inspired adventure story, in 1972 when I was a ten-year-old.
I’m now a middle-aged writer and editor. In addition to Tall And True and my blog, RobertFairhead.com, my book reviews and other writing have appeared in various print and online publications.
The Tall And True Short Reads podcast is my latest creative writing venture.
Season Two Goals
In Season One, I released thirty-two episodes. These consisted of seventeen standalone short stories and two multipart instalments, including the most recent extended short story, Both Sides of the Story.
For Season Two, in addition to short stories, I’m expanding the podcast to feature my blog posts and other writing from Tall And True.
And as with Season One, at the end of each episode, I provide a Writer’s Insight into the featured writing — why and how I wrote it — for the interest of podcast listeners and fellow writers.
The Last Book That Made You Cry
The first “blog post” episode for Season Two was released on 13 September, The Last Book That Made You Cry. And fittingly, it was the first blog post I shared on Tall And True in August 2017.
And finally, as I say at the end of each episode, please support the podcast and this writers’ website by telling your family and friends about Tall And True Short Reads and Tall And True.
