Introducing: In Other Words. 


Samantha and Allee are going to get you all worded up every Friday morning with interviews, discussions, and reviews as we explore the depth, complexity and influence of words behind the culmination of the latest literary events, independent artists and artistic creations that are exploding in Melbourne and around the world. 


In Other Words, in conjunction with the Victorian Writers Centre, is not manned, but rather womaned by two young aspiring writers. An incessant chatterbox, Samantha Kodila is an budding journalist and dabbles in both writing and media production. Joining her on the show is co-host Allee Richards, who is undertaking a degree in Creative Writing at RMIT.


So sit back, relax and get your *pitlochry on as you listen to the enlightening, the interesting, the informative and somewhat hilarious combination that is In Other Words.



*Pitlochry (n.) – The background gurgling noise heard in Wimpy Bars caused by people trying to get the last bubbles out of their milkshakes by slurping loudly through their straws.

— Douglas Adams and John Lloyd, The Meaning of Liff (1983)
