Celia Jesson, a repressed housewife from Upper Lowing, has been encouraged to do a book-based podcast to promote the local library in nearby Lower Upping, because no one else wants to do it. It’s too much of a time commitment. Created and performed by Joanna Neary. Part of the Cosmic Shambles Network.
Marriage Guidance Man - Bonus Episode

Are there more coming? Love it
Very funny, so much detail I had to listen again straight away. Loved it! Can’t wait for the next one.
Shame about Brian Cox
Dear Celia, thank you for your wonderful and educational podcast. I shall be sure to share it with my book group. Shame about the Chemist though. It’s probably for the best. I’m sure he would have turned out to be nothing but a hippy beatnik!
