    Strange Stories: Fiona Beal, Nicholas Billingham, the background to the 2024 trial.

    I am posting this before the retrial of the  Nicholas Billingham / Fiona Beal case which is due to be heard at the Old Bailey in the late Spring of 2024.  This is a retrial of a case abandoned during June 2023 for no apparent reason. 
    I am giving the background to the original trial. It is told in one take without editing.  I will post another podcast when the case finishes probably at the end of June 2024.

    Strange Stories UK: Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, Part 3 The Defence.

    Strange Stories UK: Constance Marten and Mark Gordon, Part 3 The Defence.

    I am posting this podcast after week 6  of the trial. The case is intriguing with many odd and unexplained aspects . Week 7 is about to commence with Constance Marten continuing her defence.
    I am wondering how the jury are going to come to a verdict on which they all agree.

    As usual, this podcast is posted without editing and the presentation is not of a professional standard.

Lovely unpolished

I love this beautiful podcast; it is absolutely serene and peaceful, even though these are often rough topics to discuss. I’m surprised that all the reviews are not five star. like my mother always says “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect”.

Love this Podcast

I’ve been a listener for 3 years and find the stories are always interesting. (I also don’t mind the telling of them isn’t a professionally polished delivery as it adds to the charm—much like stories you’d listen told ‘round a family fireplace before heading off to sleep).

Nothing else like it & I love it

I love to listen to narrators with lovely UK accents tell me stories as I fall asleep. And I adore how this one feels like a loved one is telling me a story. It’s not over produced, he’s not putting on a show, there’s no affectation in to the cadence and no obnoxious ads!!! It’s just a man who clearly loves this stuff, and loves sharing it with us. And I eagerly await every episode. Please never stop.
