Fiction – Recommended podcasts

  • From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as anti-woke scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Monday - with trailers on his Twitter page: @andrewgold_ok and Instagram page: @andrewgold_ok.


    With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest. Some weeks it'll be with somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or an ex-Muslim whose family tried to kill her. Other episodes will have interviews with such leading minds as Conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and feminist Helen Pluckrose.


    It was picked in Apple's prestigious New & Noteworthy category and has been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Get in touch or leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

  • București. E mai 2021. De un an și ceva pandemia de Covid-19 ține toată lumea paralizată. Măsurile de relaxare luate de autorități au adus după ele un val de noi infectări care au reușit, începând din septembrie 2020, să aducă Terra în situația de a avea spor negativ de populație. Lumea e un amestec dubios de panică, paranoia și obișnuință. Totul pare că s-a schimbat, însă nimeni nu pricepe în ce fel. Ăsta e contextul în care Șarpe, personajul principal, rămâne fără bani de chirie și ajunge să trăiască pe stradă.
