    WALLS AND RELATIONSHIPS

    Back in 2012 Kim recorded the sounds of his neighbours having sex. He will share those sounds with you... if that's ok… and we’ll listen to a secret recording he made whilst a girlfriend broke up with him back in 2005. He recorded it for training and quality control purposes.

    NOTES ON HUMAN KINDNESS

    NOTES ON HUMAN KINDNESS

    Guppies can teach us a lot: The world is full of selfish arseholes. You’re probably one yourself. In this episode Kim Noble attempts to return a wallet he found on a 172 bus to its rightful owner and in doing so breaks into a community garden. P.S. the location of a stash of money Kim buried in a roundabout near Manchester is at 18 mins 47 secs if you want to jump to that bit.

The subtle art…

Like having an audio handbook in your pocket titled... “The subtle art of leaving strangers feeling publically weird”.
