Writers and Rioters. In this episode Paul Waters and Stevyn Colgan hear from authors Gerard Brennan and Adrian McKinty about the art of writing violence. And they discuss their own experiences - as a reporter and as a police officer - when placed in dangerous and explosive situations. You’ll never think of a frying pan the same way again. We also hear riotous extracts from Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, The Fire Starters by Jan Carson and Belfast Confetti by Ciaran Carson.
We'd Like A Word is a podcast and radio show from Paul Waters and Stevyn Colgan. We talk with writers, readers, celebrities, talkers, poets about books, songs, lyrics, speeches, scripts, fiction and non-fiction. We go out once a fortnight on Wednesday evening on radio and on Thursday morning on podcast. Our website is www.wedlikeaword.com - which is where you'll find information about Paul and Steve and our guests - and details of the radio stations that carry We'd Like A Word. We're also on Twitter @wedlikeaword and Facebook @wedlikeaword and our email is email@example.com - and yes, we are slightly embarrassed by the missing apostrophes. We like to hear from you - your thoughts, ideas, guest or book suggestions. Perhaps you'd like to come on We'd Like A Word in person, to chat, review, meet writers or read out passages from books.
