Go beyond the headlines as host Jake Warren guides you through stories from around the world that are often ignored, forgotten or sidelined by the news cycle.
Introducing Benched: Saved By The Beautiful Game
In this special episode, Jake will introduce you to Benched, a new podcast by Message Heard. Benched offers you a new host each week as it brings you the human stories often sidelined in the world of sport. In episode one, gifted to you in this feed, you'll hear from Eric Murangwa, the goalkeeper for Rwanda's biggest team, Rayon Sports, when the genocide began in 1994. As part of the persecuted Tutsi minority, he tells the story of how football, and his Hutu teammates, helped save him from near certain death. Guest host for this episode is fellow goalkeeper David Preece.

The Right to Die?
Dying with dignity or playing god? Despite drawing support across a broad coalition on religious, medical and moral grounds, the question of legalising assisted dying in the UK remains unanswered. Today, we meet people immersed in both sides of the debate - and ask if Britain should give people the right to die.

What Happened at Unit 731?
In one of the largest covered up atrocities of World War 2, the Japanese army conducted human experiments using both chemical and germ weapons on living prisoners.

The Lion, The Bear and The War Zone
In Mosul, the local zoo had been long abandoned amidst the chaos and destruction of ISIS occupation. Two animals, Lula the bear and Simba the lion, remained trapped in the city. Today we hear from the vet, Dr Amir Khalil, who made it his mission to save their lives.
Very engaging and informative
I really enjoy these podcasts. They are clear, slick, and Jake Warren’s presenting style is very engaging. The time just flies by when I listen to them. They transport me to places I never thought I would venture to, and teach me things I never thought I would be I interested in. Thank you!
Will there be any more?
I was very much enjoying these podcasts, they were interesting, informative, engaging and well formatted. However, after only a few episodes the series seems to have come to a halt. Are there any plans for more in the future? It would be a shame for the series to have ended so soon!
Perfectly constructed. Can’t get enough of this stuff
