South London rapper Loyle Carner and Flautist Keith Waithe stop by to chat about their Radio 4 'The Sound Odyssey' episode, in which the pair collaborate on a track in their shared motherland, Guyana.

With national poetry day just around the corner Cerys is joined by writer and editor Allie Esiri to discuss her new book 'Shakespeare for Every Day of the Year' (Pan Macmillan).

"William Shakespeare wrote at least 37 plays, 154 sonnets and a handful of longer poems. This book is a collection of 366 of Shakespeare’s poems and passages that gives an insight into the work, time and life of the greatest writer in the English language."
