Yarn story wha?


What is Yarn Story podcast?

Whether we're spinning yarns or unraveling them, Yarn is a storytelling podcast. Unwind with short stories, dramas and documentaries. Featuring descriptive narration, voice acting talent and original music.

Should I listen to them in order?

Nah, they're not episodic. I just like numbering things. Start with whatever takes your fancy. 


Who are you?

John Roche (Me) - Amateur writer, amateur sound recorder and amateur editor. Professional Designer. Most of my stories are based on real life but if you think you recognise yourself or anyone in them, then that bit is made up.

Dermot Tobin - Avid historian, he loves saying what date things happened on and is dedicated to accuracy (something we need more of these days). His stories are more like docu-yarns. I like his silky smooth voice and his cheeky ad-libs always crack me up.

Ciarán Dunphy - Or Drembot, provides original music scores for Yarn. Haven’t managed to get his voice on any stories yet but it’s only a matter of time.


Who do the voices belong to?

Yarn has been very lucky to work with lots of great voice acting talent so far. Some professional, some not exactly professional and some that were dragged kicking and screaming:

Ricky Burgess, Lorcan Cranitch, Hazel Fahy, Gary Foley, Andrew Gillies, Claire Hall, Mairead McDaid, Joe Jameson, Mary Looby, Michael Norton, Róisín Ní Chéileachair, Bryan O Regan, Niall Ó Siadhail and Clare Taylor.


Can I send you a story?

If you’ve written a story and want to record it for the Yarn story podcast, we’d love to hear from you. Shoot us an email to yarnstorypodcast@gmail.com


I'm from a big fancy radio station and/or an internationally renowned podcast. Can I feature one of your stories on my programme?

Yes. Yes, you can.
