Antipodean Noir: recording from 2019 Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival

Really stoked that today Harrogate Festivals has today released the audio recording of the Antipodean Panel from last year's Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, as part of their featured series on great sessions from throughout the festival's history. Other sessions they've released in recent weeks include Val McDermid in conversation with Susan Calman from 2016, an audience with the legendary Colin Dexter (creator of Inspector Morse) from the first festival in 2003, and Peter Robinson and Ian Rankin in conversation back in 2012 (among several other top sessions).

I have some great memories of a wonderful hour onstage with the marvellous Jane Harper, Stella Duffy, Vanda Symon, and Christian White. Four brilliant crime writers. So many laughs, such great stories shared by all the authors. Fabulous vibe onstage. Warning: it's a group of Kiwis & Aussies, so we talk fast, we're a bit raucous, but hopefully well worth a listen for those who couldn't be there (it was a sold-out session in front of almost a thousand people). The discussion veers across a wide array of subjects, and the authors share some really remarkable insights about storytelling and much more.

Listen below, from wherever you are in the world.
