It’s side-special time! In Episode 42 of the Librarians with Lives podcast I chat to Clare McCluskey Dean, star of Episode 3 of LwL about our mutual love of all things Strictly Come Dancing, and musical theatre. It’s very fun, silly and sparkly and is the perfect antidote to the extremely intense period I’ve had recently of speaking at conferences and events, managing my anxiety, and much more. Clare is coming towards the end of the busiest period of her year and a house move. We were both in need of some daftness.
We recorded this episode on 12th November over Skype Audio. Two episodes of Strictly will have gone out between the day of recording and time of release of this episode, so I’ve removed anything that might resemble predictions, gossip and/or speculation. In terms of the musical theatre content, our opinions are very much our own and shouldn’t be treated as reviews. We know what we like (and don’t like) and get passionate about it, but in a nice way. We mention Clare’s theatre ramblings blog, which can be found here.
I have put together a playlist of the music and musicals we refer to, which is here.
Normal Librarians with Lives service resumes next week with the wonderful Sally Walker.
