Podcast Pick: Serial 2

The show is once again narrated by Sarah Hoenig, slowly taking up a story that has been dismissed by others as already having been answered. Last year Sarah and her team took apart a murder, and I am happy to say that this season is on a completely different theme. The show this time tells […]

The thriller is another top hit on the murder mystery radio scene.

These are just two questions covered in this week’s thought-provoking podcast The Why Factor, hosted by Mike Williams and created by BBC World Service. I recently listened to the episode, ‘Why can’t some people eat certain foods?’ which mainly covered the […]
