Love, Canberra on the Filmspotting podcast

When I took Anthropology at university, I studied the text Nisa: The Life and Words of a !Kung Woman.

I learned that '!' denoted the sharp clucking sound Nisa and members of her tribe made, which was a feature of their language system. 

On this occasion, many exclamation points would be appropriate, although they would have no relevance to the !Kung tribe's vocalisations. Instead, the many exclamation points I'd want to use in this post but won't (because it would be tacky and unprofessional) would symbolise my utter joy and excitement. 

Ah, what the hell.

Filmspotting mentioned Love, Canberra in the latest episode of their podcast!!!!!! That's Episode #577: Knight of Cups / FS Madness / May Marathon #3 - Mikey and Nicky!!!!!

The back story to this is, having been a listener of Filmspotting for the past year or so, I was well aware that Filmspotting is sponsored by Squarespace. In being so, Adam and Josh are in the habit of giving sites created using Squarespace a plug. So I wrote in, told them about the short-lived film podcast a friend and I did that had been inspired by Filmspotting, and said that I would be extremely grateful if they could give Love, Canberra a shoutout - because I've used Squarespace to create the website.

And they did.

And I noticed a massive spike in my listenership.

The power of podcast sponsorship!
