In the first of a new series of Bookmark, Sponsored by Heffers, Leigh Chambers talks to fantasy and science fiction writer, Helen Marshall, about the world-building in novels and using the future to reflect on the past. We also hear from performance poet, Harry Baker, on how poetry helped him overcome his shyness. And travel writer Jane Wilson-Howarth explains her personal connection to Nepal.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are listening to Cambridge 105 than ever but in a competitive media landscape it’s sometimes difficult to make a noise. And advertising revenues are falling across the sector.
Our brief is to give a voice to those sometimes excluded from traditional media. And the presenters you hear on air are all volunteers themselves, who give up their time for free. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who listens to our shows, our podcasts, whose businesses we feature, helps to pay for it, our future would be much more secure.
Please help to support community radio and make our future more secure. You can support Cambridge 105 by giving monthly or by making a one-off contribution through Local Giving.
