THE SHY LIFE PODCAST

This is THE SHY LIFE PODCAST - each episode provides a glimpse into the slightly batty and bizarre world of Mr Shy Yeti. You will meet his friends, hear tales of his life in the library, travel with him as he gallivants about - and if you're good he might even read you one of his daft poems!

Here we are for episode EIGHTEEN - and I have recorded probably the strangest and silliest episode yet! My brother, Graham and niece, Alena were visiting my parents and it gave me the chance to catch up with them. I'd not seen them for three years! Things all begin quite normally with a chat about horror films and music - but then suddenly things take an odd turn... Have you ever heard of the band, Bee-Bumble!? No... But you will do... Wanna try Alena's jelly-bean challenge! (I'd take care if I were you!) There is also a new prose piece from Mr Yeti, BUTTERFLY HONEY. It really is a bizarre episode, but fun, I hope!! Thank you to Graham, Alena for appearing on this show and also to mum and dad who also briefly cameo. I am aiming to get episode 19 of the show ready in the week or so! Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments. The music is by Shy Yeti and Luca. This episode and all contents are Copyright Paul Chandler, 2016. Episode 18 was recorded between the 24th and the 25th July 2016. BUTTERFLY HONEY appears on my blog at the following link: http://thedaffypoet.blogspot.co.uk/2016_07_31_archive.html
