They've just gone fishin'. Next week we're BACK in Westeros after a year away for the fifth part of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire: A Feast for Crows. Oh yeah. As ever, hit us up with am email at sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com, or on Twitter: @sharkliveroil, with your thoughts, opinions, and fantasy cover versions of jazz classics. See you next week.

Mort 2: Gone Fishin!

00:0000:00

It's part two of our read through of Mort by Terry Pratchett. We join Death as he decides to take some much needed downtime with a spot of light fishing. Meanwhile teenage disaster magnet Mort tries to take on the top job with predictably horrendous consequences. Damn those hormones!

We're back, and we're doing a modern classic - Terry Pratchett's Mort. Watch as we meet Death himself and discover he loves a skull-wax, digs curry, and cares more for cats than you might normally expect. This is a bit of a heartfelt one for Dave, since Terry Pratchett is a hero of his; and in his honour, we've gone looking for the surreal and the beautiful in this book. And when you've got a deathly horse called Binky, surreal beauty isn't far off. As ever, we want to hear your views on the book - and your best impressions of what Death sounds like. RECORD YOUR IMPRESSIONS OF HIM AND SEND THEM TO: sharkliveroilpodcast@gmail.com.
