Looks Unfamiliar 28: Jenny Morrill
Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.
Joining Tim this time is writer Jenny Morrill, who’s rifling through an eighties teenager’s diary in search of any concrete evidence of the existence of Boots Global Collection, the Just Seventeen Yearbook, a P&O Advert using La Mer, an unidentified Eastern European animation about a bird that gets turned into a bat, Melody Maker column Diary Of A Manic Street Preachers Fan, and a film her dad remembers about some sheep. Along the way we’ll also be finding out which face mask Oasis fans favoured, who ‘Andrew’ was in Rainbow, and which is the most animated out of Thom Yorke and a poster of Thom Yorke, not to mention examining the worrying amount of evidence of The Snowman’s sinister culture-jamming agenda.
Jenny Morrill is a writer and regular contributor to Den Of Geek. You can find Jenny’s website here (the Diary Of An Eighties Teenager starts here), and follow her on Facebook here and Twitter at @theworldofcrap. Jenny’s highly recommended debut novel is available from Amazon here.
