Poem 'It Isn't Punk To Seek Permission' featured on BBC R4's Best of 2018









Happy New Year to you all! 
I start 2019 with two pieces up on BBC Radio 4



Mrs Death Misses Death - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0001dg9



"Not for the faint hearted,  Godden faces with robust clarity what many of us would prefer to distract ourselves from thinking about. She argues that Death is a woman; not the usual caricature of a hooded male figure carrying a sickle. She’s that invisible woman who can be found anywhere and everywhere: the careworn mother sitting beside us on the bus, or the cleaner in the hospital corridor we walk past and don’t notice. She lives among us in different guises; that’s the point. Death really is part of life." 'Mrs Death Misses Death' Review: Kate Chisholm, The Spectator
