Capital Yarns is an experiment in storytelling developed by Sean Costello. He invites social media users to nominate three items for him to weave into a short fictional story set in Canberra, capital of Australia. Previous yarns are available to read at http://www.capitalyarns.com.au. Visit to request your own! This podcast features audio versions of the yarns read by Sean's friends and family including Melanie Skinner and Peter Heweston.
