    Listeners were treated to two very special guests on this week's bonus episode of Left on Read as Julie and Brenda were joined by Fionn and Erin Rose for a chat about all things nativities and school plays. Things have come a long way since the days of simply placing a Baby Born doll in a manager, with characters including paparazzi, radiators (or narrators as they're more commonly known!) and even the sun all making appearances.

    Twins and Me.. and my sperm donor

    There are all sorts of ways to become and to be a mother, and while Julie has shared her own story, today the girls heard from Tracy Shine who decided to have her lovely little twins via sperm donor.
