Guardian Australia's Brisbane Festival Podcast: episode two


Ryan van Winkle is Edinburgh City Libraries reader in residence, a program he created to focus on engaging and growing audiences for poetry. He is in Australia performing at the Brisbane Festival as part of the Basement Late Nights program and is also touring his highly acclaimed Edinburgh show Red Like Our Room Used to Feel which is coming to Melbourne Fringe. David Stavanger is Brisbane City Library's reader in residence and along with Ryan has been building a sister city relationship though poetry. You might also find him performing as Ghostboy or enticing security guards to read love poems over the library PA system.

Vicky Frost, Ben Neutze and Katharine Viner cover the latest reviews – Ben is still recovering from a very close encounter with an actor at Hello My Name Is. On which note: what makes good participatory theatre, and what happens when it goes wrong?

Also up for discussion: Natalie Weir's latest offering When Time Stops which is having its World Premier at the festival. Plus a brave adaptation of The Wizard of Oz that casts aside Toto and the Yellow Brick Road, and a flavour of Brisbane food and what makes some of the city's chefs tick.
