Cornucopia Radio Podcast 70: A Season of Changes
James sits alone in his flat dreading the things that lurk outside. Margaret silently considers how much time she has left as a machine rhythmically measures her heartbeat. Kathy slowly worries about what she has lost and Jane tries to come to terms with what she now has to cut away. It is a season of change for all four of them and that's when the lightbulb flickers for a brief moment before the filament breaks at its weakest point and everyone is left in darkness. We all know it's only temporary, and lightness will surely soon return, but can we ever be sure? 'A Season of Changes' is our new audiodrama, recorded in Sheffield and telling the story of four people whose past misfortunes and future hopes become intertwined through a thin dividing wall.

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 62: Reluctant Genius By Henry Slesar

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 61: The Origins of Comic-Book Boy
They are stories of heroism, strength and of courage. Stories in which one person can stand up against the darkness that surrounds us, and say with total conviction and self-belief; that they are the ‘light’. We see pages full of colour and life, in which kinetic action moves across the panels. Dancing in front of our eyes, filling our imagination with endless possibilities...Comics are a way of life for so many people, but do we truly understand their power? More importantly; if that power was ever unleashed, would it be used for good or for evil?So today, we're asking the question. What would we create?
