And just like that all my winter podcasts are now out. The latest featuring Dr. Ryan Thorpe, the founder of The Inkwell literary and creative writing collective that has spread throughout many cities in China and Eric De Fontenay, the founder of Music Dish and finally my own Songs in Asia podcast. I've really enjoyed this first year of podcasting, to be able to connect with listeners and fans in a more intimate way! Whilst there were many challenges in not being able to travel as freely in China and Asia due to the covid restrictions, it did enable these Soundvibe podcasts to begin, as normally I would be traveling to meet a range of creative folks and venues around the globe! I enjoyed being the hostess for jams in Hangzhou at Homey Bar 88 which was a special way to bring a range of poets, musicians and artists together. I'll be doing more of this next year. Thank you for listening into the show folks. I look forward to sharing January podcasts with you shortly! Til then Happy New Year! Jane Nicola
For my December podcast, I interviewed Dr. Ryan Thorpe, the founder of Inkwell literary organisation currently based in Shanghai. Originally from the US, Thorpe has lived in the countries of Korea and China. His literary organisation has continued to supersede many in China and his literary workshops in fiction, screenwriting, poetry, non-fiction and reading continue to appeal to both professional and new comers alike. Thorpe shares the story behind this, both uplifting and fascinating to hear how he has untaken this, throughout his many years in Asia.
