Welcome to another episode of the Roseland Podcast 

I’m Chloe, your host.

Interview time!

This week’s guest is Philip Marsden. Philip is an award-winning travel writer and novelist based right here on the Roseland.


The book we were discussing is called “The Summer Isles: A Voyage of the Imagination” by Philip Marsden. It’s available in all good bookshops (including St Mawes Post Office!).

And if you’ve enjoyed hearing a bit about what goes on behind the scenes in an authors life why not have a listen to episode 2 - where I’m chatting with self-published author Alan Durham about the writing process.


Lindsey and I are always on the lookout for more people to interview - so if you’d like to come on the show and talk about pretty much anything at all - we’re interested.

The first step is to drop us an email to with your ideas and any questions you’ve got.

Everything is recorded in advance - it doesn’t go out live.

You don’t even have to be willing to come on the show - if you have a recipe, a poem, a story - you can record it at home and send us the mp3 file OR  just email it in and we can read it out for you.

I hope this will help us all feel a little less alone, and connected to our wonderful community.

If you want to make sure you hear the rest of the shows then bookmark, and look for us on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or your usual podcast app and subscribe. 

Be kind and stay safe.
