Travelling all the way from Graz in Austria to join Charles Adrian this week is performer and creator Christina Scheutz. With only the scarcest of resources to hand, they discuss trees and ravens, uncertain endings and words that are as unobtainable as Cadillacs. Christina brings music made by friends of hers and Charles Adrian gives a nod to a certain recently re-elected, if poorly, American president.

Books by David Foster Wallace are discussed in Page One 51 (Brief Interviews With Hideous Men) and Page One 71 (This Is Water).

The last time Christina was in London, she and Charles Adrian made a film about Swing Dancing in the city, which you can find here.

This episode was recorded at the Wilton Way Café for London Fields Radio, which you can find out more about here.
