    July
    In July, the ancient woodland cools us down - while we explore the hot-weather roots of some of the month's many names. In the garden Zoe gives us some charms against pests, and we find out what to eat and plant in the veg patch. Our folktale tells of fairies, while The Breath sing 'Only Stories', a song about Ríoghnach's childhood summers spent in West Cork. This episode also features a short performance from Sam Lee and original music from Avery Bright, excerpts from Ffern's short film 'A Tuscan Summer'.

    Found Sound for April
    April's Found Sound is the second part of an exploration into foraging. In this episode, Alice meets wild foods expert Miles Irving to forage for common hogweed and drink rosebay willowherb tea. Settle in for a relaxing ten minutes that will help you feel part of nature, wherever you are. Please note that common hogweed should only be eaten cooked and those with celery allergies should avoid it. Common Hogweed's lookalikes include the invasive ‘Giant Hogweed’, which grows to much greater heights and should not be handled or eaten. If you plan to forage at home, always be 100% sure with your identification and that it is edible. This episode was produced by musician and sound artist Alice Boyd, featuring music by herself and The Breath. Thanks go to Miles Irving.
