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.

The Afterword Podcast returns after a much needed post summer break to entertain you through the cold, dark evenings to come...

Twang, JohnA, Asquith and Raymond discuss the art and craft of songwriting, both from the perspective of their favourite artists and also from their own experiences struggling with the muse (and the frequent indifference of the rest of the world).

Where do songs come from? How do the greats and not so greats "do it"? What is the difference between a singer/songwriter and a singer who writes songs? Lyrics - ambiguous stream of consciousness or carefully reworded to perfection? And where does Bob Dylan fit in all of this? All this and more is explored by the team.

Features bonus tracks from our boys.
