James Acaster has been nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy Award five times and has appeared on prime-time TV shows like Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Russell Howard's Stand Up Central. But behind the fame and critical acclaim is a man perpetually getting into trouble. Whether it's disappointing a skydiving instructor midflight or hiding from thugs in a bush wearing a bright red dress, James is always finding new ways to embarrass himself.

Story well told and good to revisit, having listened to Serial when it was on. However, frustrating that still no final judgement from the courts... when is this due to be given?

What if your best friend’s child disappears? On your watch? What would you do? This is exactly what happens to Lisa Kallisto one freezing December in the English Lakes. Her whole world descends into the stuff of nightmares. Because, not only is 13-year-old Lucinda missing, and not only is it all Lisa’s fault, but she’s the second teenage girl to disappear within a fortnight. And the first one turned up stripped bare, after suffering from a terrifying ordeal. Wracked with guilt over her mistake, and after being publicly blamed by Lucinda’s family, Lisa sets out to right the wrong.

What made the experience of listening to Just What Kind of Mother Are You? the most enjoyable?

Absolutely loved this. Good to hear a story that has similarities of your own life, i.e. always doubting how good you are and then realising you are actually OK..... Loved this from start to finish.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Where it was revealed that the "perfect" mother was really not perfect at all.....

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The title says it all....
