Author and artist Miranda Keeling has launched a new podcast based on her best-selling book, The Year I Stopped To Notice, capturing “‘small but magical moments of everyday life” through sound.
Created as the first original series from Fresh Air Production, Stopping To Notice will consist of five-minute biweekly episodes giving listeners a window into Keeling’s day-to-day life, captured via binaural 3D recording techniques for increased immersion.
The book itself has garnered high praise, from leading luminaries of the calibre of Neil Gaiman, Philip Pullman and Dame Joanna Lumley. Keeling, who is also an award-winning voice-over actor and artist, has now decided to expand on the themes expressed there and on her popular Twitter account.
Talking about the new series, she said: “Until now, I’ve been writing down what I see and sharing those observations on Twitter. But in my new podcast, I get to share those moments with you through sound. I record all the strange and wonderful things I notice in the world around me. I love to get lost in the details and I am so excited to bring you with me.”
“We are incredibly proud to be launching the first original series from Fresh Air Production,” said founder Neil Cowling, “and be working with the wonderfully talented Miranda. Listeners are in for a few much-needed moments of calm each week and I love the way we are using binaural recordings to give listeners a full and immersive experience.”
The series launches on 22 November on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, with new episodes appearing every Tuesday and Thursday. The trailer is live now.
