About the Podcast

Sleeping with the Moon
What does a full moon mean to you? Have you ever slept out under one and watched it rise?

Storyteller Michael Loader has done just that. During the year of 2021, he spent one night a month sleeping out in a bivvi bag under the full moon and each experience inspired him to create a unique piece of writing.

On each full moon during 2022, we will release that story.
