Hopping The Pond
with Aoife Spillane-Hinks

Today’s re-release: this one’s exciting because it corresponds with some content that you can stream from the comfort of your own home: Aoife Spillane Hink’s film opera A Thing I Cannot Name is streaming online for World Opera Day. Irish-American director, writer, and actor Aoife-Spillane Hinks is a longtime friend of mine. We used to joke that we were long lost sisters (similar curly hair although hers was more impressive) and even though we rarely get to connect you can tell in this episode that there’s so much love there. I am quite jealous of Aoife’s acquired Irish-American lilt, yet another reason to listen and enjoy.
