A surrealist microstory which is either a horror story about animal cruelty, the nightmarish abuse of a stuffed toy or just a typical breakfast in a long-term relationship. You be the judge of Lou Swinn’s ‘Particles In My Body’ narrated by Eleni Schumacher. Let Ali and Emma know what you think, drop by the Coffee Pod|cast Facebook page.

‘Particles In My Body’ is published in the anthology, Escape edited by Bronwyn Mehan
