The story of Gwenda and Pat – whose wanderings inspired Bedpans & Bobby Socks – is now a podcast!
In ‘Off the Page’, I am hoping to make a series of podcasts that bring to life some of the true-life stories from the books I’ve written. In the first of these, ‘Wandering Girls’ – the title comes from a newspaper headline about them – Gwenda and Pat recall their meeting as student nurses in Newcastle and the purchase of their first car, their arrival in Cleveland in 1957, and the 18-month-long US road trip they embarked on a year later.
There’s a nice jazzy soundtrack too!
With thanks to Arts Council England for a grant which enabled me to produce this.
