Episode 6 - The Khan Shatyr

May 28, 2020

Hello! A Contrite Alastair here - I celebrated a podcast chart placing a little too vigorously last night and thus delayed the recording and release of this week's episode in which we take a trip to 2010 and the opening of the Khan Shatyr entertainment centre in Kazakhstan, notable for being the world's largest tent. It also details my last meeting with a dear friend. Please do remember to like and subscribe and review the podcast!

Hello podders, today's episode charts an ill-fated trip to Pripyat which I took in 2012. I also relate a rather sad experience which was mentally scarring for my family, and physically scarring for an employee of my father. Please enjoy and don't forget to like and subscribe!

Hello podpeople! I'm back for another episode of Unlocked World, and a rather special one this time. This week I've hired a producer who has souped up the audio for the show and added some jazzy sound effects. I haven't been able to get it working on my machine but he assures me it is sounding great. The piece I share this week is an extract from my debut novel, Agua de Vida, and is - if I do say so myself - gripping from start to finish.

Hello friends. Welcome to Unlocked World. In this episode, I travel to Boscastle in Cornwall to visit the celebrity chef (and very good friend of mine) Martin Palmer. Though this piece was published in 2013, inquiries are still ongoing so please do contact the police if you have any information.

Welcome to Episode Two of Unlocked World, in which I take you on a journey to the capital of Belarus - Minsk. Certain elements of the podcast have had to be redacted for complicated reasons that I can't get into here or indeed anywhere. My lawyers were extremely reticent about this episode so you should consider yourselves lucky that it is being released at all.
