In this special edition podcast, the On the Rag team do a roadie to the Spark festival in Hamilton to talk creativity and struggles.
Arriving on a sugar high courtesy of Duck Island ice-cream and good vibes, Alex Casey, Leonie Hayden and Michele A’Court hit the couches at the Spark Festival to chew over what they wish they had known before they delved into their creative careers.
What three books changed 18 year-old Michele’s life? How has Leonie learned to cope with criticism? What sage writing advice did Alex wish she had followed? We share our thoughts over a glass of wine and somehow decide that Shrek is the only unproblematic film from yesteryear that’s worth revisiting.
