#1942 Patricia – Part I

Sometimes fate brings the right people together, in the right place, at the right time. And then there’s the near-misses. What happens when the stars don’t align?

A scripted drama based on a collection of bugged phone calls – Patricia is the story of two people meeting at a tragically inopportune time, told through overheard phone conversations.

#1938 Sea Change

For many of us, travelling is the way we unhook ourselves from our routine, when we feel like we need a break, or a fresh perspective. Usually, it’s just for a few weeks. This week we have two stories of people leaving their old life behind for good. One of them by choice, the other out of neccessity.

#1937 People Readers

This episode is all about reading people—reading their mannerisms, picking up on social cues, trying to glean what a person is really like through observation. We have an expert in reading sexual energy and an artist undertaking an observational experiment which leads them to discover, for the first time, all the strange and unique behaviours of the people closest to them.

#1936 Things I Cannot Change

This week, stories about the ways we deal with loss. Whether it’s suddenly losing your hair, or the death of your beloved pet dog.

#1934 Runs in the Family

It’s often not until we look back as adults that we recognise the passions we’ve inherited from our parents.

This week, Gina traces her lifelong love of cars back to the father she lost as a child, and Renee tries her best to nurture the creativity in her own children.

#1933 Doing It My Way

Taking what’s broken about your favourite TV show and fixing it. Redefining self-care in a way that works for you. This week, stories of people doing things their own way.
