    Abi Morgan’s Husband Woke Up & Didn't Remember Her

    Listen to the second half of Mia's conversation with Abi here. 

    The last few years of Abi Morgan’s life would make an incredible TV show, although you might not believe it because of the plot twists. One of those twists is that Abi herself is an Emmy-award-winning screenwriter of movies like Iron Lady, with Meryl Streep, and TV dramas like The Split.

    But nothing could have prepared her for the cascading series of events that began on a very ordinary day. The crescendo of this story is that, after waking up from a coma, Abi's partner of 20 years didn't recognise her. And only her...

Love It

Beautiful interview about her ADHD diagnosis. Thank you Mia for being so open

Josie0302 ,

In app purchases!

I used to enjoy No Filter. I now feel like it is more like an online game with in app purchases. ‘Here is one episode but to listen to the second half you must subscribe’. If that is the business model, fine, but be upfront about it.

vivianaun ,

Right on point

Mia always bring relevant interviews, fun, witty and updated to important topics. Loved it
