The Afterword Podcast

This is GLK London calling the audio companion to

The sound of the waifs and strays of the Word magazine blog (RIP), musing along the byways of popular culture. We blather, you listen — that’s the deal.

Twang, SteveT, Pencilsqueezer and Carl Parker explore the dusty back trails of country rock. Rapidly realising that their destination is but a dream and that the path is too long with too many byways, the pardners eventually accept that they explore in vain.
