Every story is different, but they all take you to unexpected places using only sound. If you're new, some good starting places are: Silvia's Blood, That's Democracy, Moon Graffiti, Tape Delay, or whatever's most recent. Listening with headphones is encouraged!

I absolutely love the Fitzroy Diaries, Lorin Clarke has created something extraordinary, not only a brilliant soundscape but a gorgeous meandering story of a woman in relation to her community and those around her, a sweet, funny and engaging observational diary of life in her suburbs and streets, very much looking forward to the next one, as I've listened to this one several times

This is awful. Spare yourself from listening to this mundane, drab, no personality what-so-ever podcast episode. Yet another person that feels the need to share how untalented they are. Bravo.
