Oliver Twist Tries Podcasts
7m 31s

Oliver Twist Tries Podcasts features recordings made in London in 2018, mainly on public transport. These are mixed with clips from the 1948 film Oliver Twist. The piece contrasts certain self help narratives with the daily reality of being part of society.

It invites the listener to think about what is individual and what is shared. It’s also about the joy of being in a city surrounded by other people, in whose worlds you can become briefly immersed.
