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 TEN - and this really is our longest episode yet!! This time Mr Yeti is back down in Salisbury - visiting friends and family. We meet his old friend Nick Goodman, who has been on the show before (via the telephone!) and they discuss how they met, preserving their films from the 1990s and their latest writing project. You will also receive an audio tour of the village, Yeti Manors, where Shy grew up! All that and we also catch up with his mum who has a strange plant growing in her garden and also tells a story about how Shy was once a naughty yeti. All that and some left-over poems from Mr Yeti's recent London show and we catch up with Yeti Uncle John and Dameus Twinklehorn. There is also a little tune that long-time followers of Mr Yeti may recall! I am aiming to get episode 11 of the show ready before mid-August!

This is the pilot episode for my forthcoming THE SHY LIFE PODCAST which I hope to start posting regularly later in the summer. This is a shorter episode, with no guests - but it does give you an idea of some of the silliness that will be involved. In this pilot episode you will find some daft secrets about libraries - a poem from my latest E.P. (THE KISS-ME-QUICK E.P. available from Bandcamp) and there are also some musings from legendary actor Dameus Twinklehorn about his appearances in a number of horror films in the late 1960s. Hopefully I will return soon with a full-length episode and future installments will be available on various hosts to download. This episode was recorded between Saturday 14th and Monday 16th May 2016. Please email me at shyyeti@yahoo.co.uk if you have any comments.
