What's that? The airy caper of Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and their mates? No it's Planet Poetry bringing you Matthew Stewart, who - by some uncanny podcast magic - is sheltering from the sweltering heat of the Spanish sun. His collection The Knives of Villalejo provides clues to what could have coaxed a poet from the cul-de-sacs of suburban Surrey to the vineyards of Extremadura.
Amid the festive banter, you'll find your podcast pals discussing a Writer's Advent Calendar from Jo Bell and seasonal favourites Snow by Louis McNeice and [little tree] by e. e. cummings.
Thank you very much for listening to us in 2022. Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and an absolutely splendiferous New Year! See you in January.
