I'm really enjoying this show. It discusses mental health in a ver honest and down-to-Earth way from the perspective of people who live and thrive with different mental health disorders. You also get a bit of information from a health professional about the scientific side of things and the treatments available. All without being too heavy, triggering or boring. Great show.

In November 2014 Arla Macleod bludgeoned her mother, father and sister to death with a hammer. Now incarcerated at a medium-security mental-health institution, Arla will speak to no one but Scott King, an investigative journalist, whose Six Stories podcasts have become an internet sensation. King finds himself immersed in an increasingly complex case, interviewing five witnesses and Arla herself as he questions whether Arla's responsibility for the massacre was a diminished as her legal team made out.

I really enjoyed Six Stories, but this time I gave up after less than 2 hours. The actress is really good, but the story takes SO long to take off! And being just the two characters, it becomes repetitive and you wish he stopped interrupting and she got to the point.

A gritty reimagining of Shakespeare's famous tragedy - full of passion, emotion, scandal, disillusionment and family fallout. A brand new modern-day audiobook adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic love story. Romeo and Jude - starring Owen Teale ( Game of Thrones), Matthew Tennyson ( Pride), Nick Moran ( Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels) and Ricky Norwood ( EastEnders).

Entertaining for a while, but so unlikely and exaggerated you end up thinking the writer is having a laugh. I really struggled to finish it.
