This week’s episode features a short story by Jonathan D’Arcy about a Classics teacher who gets left behind by society while trying to follow him dreams. He finds himself caught up in a web of deceit and lies that leaves him questioning many of his life choices. Jonathan D’Arcy is an Irish writer living in the North East of England. He’s been teaching for many years and is currently doing a PhD in Comparative Literature. Other People’s Flowers is the podcast that showcases short stories, essays, and reportage. We’re the first podcast-based literary journal. People hardly read journals anymore so we hope you’ll listen instead.
