One of the most moving, beautiful and inspiring sets of interviews I have ever heard.
What was one of the most memorable moments of What Goes On Here?
The artist recounting the loss of her daughter and how she subsequently rebuilt her life was an incredibly powerful story.
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Sam Walker is a masterful interviewer who asks searching yet compassionate questions to draw fascinating stories from her subjects. She also knows just when to step back and let them fill the space in the interview.
Any additional comments?
Each episode captures the joys, sorrows, failures and redemptions of a real life, lived hard.

Wow such amazing true life stories.
Highly recommended. Heartbreaking, sad but all full of positivity. 10/10.
Of the 24 people interviewed, only 5 or 6 were female. Originally a BBC product, so not surprising as they do nowt to escape the male-as-norm. I haven't listened to them all as I tired of hearing male experience after male experience.
At best 25% of this series focused on women or females. That is complacent and not at all representative of the UK. Do better, please.
