In essence, this episode – The Fall of The Willow – is a spoken-word album, which you can listen to in one continuous stream.

It's a curated compilation consisting of each one of Cameron's original poems shared in the 2020 podcast season. These poems have been brought together to create a single half-hour of swirling, twirling, whispered and hollered words declared and confided to YOU – our dear listener.
