WHAT IS IT?

An in­ter­view – well, more of a mono­logue, given the in­ter­viewer chips in so rarely – with “in­trigu­ing char­ac­ters who aren’t quite who you think they are when you rst meet them”.

WHY SHOULD I LIS­TEN?

You will al­most cer­tainly never have heard in­ter­views like these be­fore. The peo­ple in­volved aren’t nec­es­sar­ily notable but have had ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ences that you’re un­likely to see cov­ered in the main­stream me­dia. One episode gives an in­side look into the life of in­ter­net black­mail­ers, while A Red Dot fea­tures a sex of­fender ex­plain­ing his life ex­pe­ri­ences.

For over­all im­pact, how­ever, it’s dif cult to look past The Liv­ing Room. We won’t give away any­thing – even ex­plain­ing the premise re­veals too much – but suf ce it to say this is a gen­uinely sad episode that will make you think about re­la­tion­ships and mor­tal­ity in a com­pletely dif­fer­ent way.

HOW LONG AND HOW OF­TEN?

Usu­ally be­tween 30 min­utes and an hour. Episodes have be­come quite ir­reg­u­lar in sched­ul­ing – which is un­der­stand­able given the ef­fort in­volved in each story.
