For most of us, our relationships with our brothers and sisters are the longest lasting of our lives, sometimes spanning 80 or 90 years. Sibling relationships come before friendships or romances, and usually outlive any links with our parents. On Relatively, Catherine Carr will bring siblings together to talk about the connections they have with each other as adults, as well as what it was like growing up. But she'll also talk to them separately, to get a private take on the relationship. Expect nostalgia, honesty and lots of teasing.

    4 | Dan and Rebecca Snow

    4 | Dan and Rebecca Snow

    Historian Dan Snow's greatest regret is how he treated his little sister Beck Snow in childhood, though the duo (despite being separated by the Atlantic) are now as thick as thieves. In this episode of Relatively, Dan and Beck recount the summer they learned how to wow the dance floor at teenage parties and the soap-opera-like moment they found out about their father Peter Snow's love child Matthieu. The siblings talk about teasing, eccentricity and fame, privilege – and the pride they feel for each other's successes.

    3 | Johnny & Lillie Flynn

    3 | Johnny & Lillie Flynn

    Johnny Flynn (nickname Stumblebum) has a little sister Lillie (nickname Squirtface) as well as four much older half-siblings – and the performing gene, inherited from their dad Eric Flynn, runs strong in all of them. As children Johnny and Lillie were thick as thieves: he loved nothing more than making her laugh, so winning a choral scholarship to boarding school at 8 and leaving her was a real wrench. In this episode of Relatively they talk about living together as drama students, searching for peace after their dad's death and performing on stage together in Johnny's band, The Sussex Wit.  
    Huge thanks to the management at Transgressive Records for letting us play some of Johnny's music. ('Raising the Dead' and 'The Water')
    All music by Johnny Flynn and The Sussex Wit is music available to buy through www.transgressiverecords.com

    1 | Jess Phillips & Luke Trainor

    Jess Phillips MP is the youngest of four, the only girl and cheerfully confesses to being "the bossy one". In this episode, she and her brother Luke Trainor talk about getting into big trouble as kids, whether or not you were allowed to smoke in the loft (you weren't) and how even as adults, they still have each other's backs: Jess tried to help when Luke suffered from serious drug addiction, and Luke worries about Jess navigating an increasingly fraught political world.

More please

These podcasts are superb - as youngest of 8 children, I can see/hear some of myself and my siblings in each episode! Catherine is a fabulous interviewer and asks great questions. I love the relaxed vibe of the interviewees and really feel like I’m sitting in the room with them. More please ...
