Each story is about reaching the seventh thing...it could be a marriage, a planet, a house guest, a victim, an answerphone message - anything at all. The vibe is quirky, curious and unexpected.
Every podcast episode tells a new story featuring a different character. Every story is self-contained and is about what happens to the character when they arrive at their seventh thing.
