Two years ago I was locked down in my brother’s little flat in Swansea. I was anxious about many things, like everyone. I had just finished a novel and wanted something new to write, when my brother said “I’ve had this idea for a kid’s story, about a giant who comes out from the sea and . . . then . . . well, I don’t know what happens next, but that’s the idea.” I sat down to write some notes with that idea in mind, and a few days later had the short story, with all my anxieties about the time cathartically thrown into it.
Two years later, the thing has been developed into a full podcast series, out now on Spotify and Castbox.
Here’s Part One!
