With a clock ticking implacably in the background, Charles Adrian meets mother, mobile artist and edible gardener Viviana Rossi-Cafell for the 76th Second-Hand Book Factory. They talk about the transformative effect of gardening, a warm feeling of friendship and a feeling that comes just before crying. Italian is spoken in this episode, both well and badly. You can see some of Viviana’s work here.

This episode features a jingle written for the podcast by the band Friends Of Friends; you can find some of their music here.

Episode released: 11th August, 2015.
