    Case 28: Centaur

    Case 28: Centaur

    Case Twenty Eight. Centaur? Centaur! Mat Ewins dons his best silks and climbs into his stirrups as he launches into Hoof Hefner, convicted fraudster and horse trainer extraordinaire. A bizarre tale of lies, deceit and the charms a man with horse legs can hold over simple folk, one for the record books but for all the wrong reasons.

    Case 27: Traffic Warden

    Case Twenty Seven. Poop! Poop! Mat Ewins dons his driving gloves and shows us his clutching feet as he joins traffic warden Geoffrey Pinto on a journey through time in, no less, a time travelling car. Think Back to the Future without the spectacle, plot, the charisma of the leads or Spielberg at the helm and you’ll be half way there! Play loud! Play fast!

    Case 26: Shakespeare’s Sequels

    Case 26: Shakespeare’s Sequels

    Case Twenty Six. Mat Ewins pulls up his tights, pulls down his ruff and soliloquises with Bill Bulbs, a librarian (libearian) who discovered the unpublished sequels of William Shakespeare. A tale that could’ve been written by the Bard himself, best listened to whilst being pursued by a bear.

    Case Twenty Five. Mat Ewins gives BT engineer Greg Gloves a call about the power of 5G, mind control and has his head spun 360 on the revelations regarding the revolving restaurant in London’s glittering middle. With government moles everywhere, play this one quietly on headphones wearing your favourite balaclava.

With a cast of thousands, this is one to turn up loud in the shower or over a sizzling breakfast pan.
