Words Weekend 2019
Unexplained Podcast Live
Join us as we welcome Richard MacLean Smith – the originator of Unexplained – which has been described as “the world’s spookiest podcast” for a live recording of the show. In his bi-weekly podcast Richard discusses some of the strange and mysterious real life events that continue to evade explanation. This is a show about the space between what we think of as real and what is not. Where the unknown and paranormal meets some of the most radical ideas in science today. When something is inexplicable, that mystery in itself can become the story. In many ways, it is often the lure of the mystery that keeps us coming back for more… And maybe, ultimately, some things are just better left unexplained…
Start time: 6pm
As everyone deserves equal access to entertainment, every event in Words Weekend will be accessible. In addition to the gold standard access provision at Sage Gateshead, all events will be BSL interpreted and there will be a roaming interpreter facilitating conversations throughout the venue.
Words Weekend will post a Social Story on their website for anyone who might find new situations difficult and would like to know what to expect from the festival. Sage Gateshead also offer short familiarisation visits.
We request that everyone is tolerant to the needs of other audience members, some of whom might need to take a break from a space during an event, for example. Lighting will be raised slightly higher than usual, sound levels will be limited at most events and more comfortable seating options will be offered in some spaces. Please remember that not all disabilities or health conditions are visible. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]
