Renegade Radio presents: Lone Passage
Lone Passage is a podcast about those most vulnerable and invisible in our society; Unaccompanied Minor Refugees. Children who are forced to leave their homes and loved ones due to dire circumstances.
Through this exclusive audio documentary series, we will be shining a light on the stories and struggles of refugee children who in one way or another, ended up here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. What does the future hold for these young refugees in a country that doesn't recognize the rights of refugees?
From Renegade Radio in collaboration with Malaysiakini, this is Lone Passage.

TBNT S04E07 | The Devil and the Dark Water with author Stuart Turton
Stuart Turton returns with his second novel, another twisty nefarious tale, this time set on a ship in the 17th century. There is a motley crew of suspect characters, supernatural occurrences and of course murder. But as usual nothing is what it seems and we chatted with Stuart about what obsesses him, the story that did not let him go and what it takes to write a book like this. You won't want to miss this! It's an excellent interview.
TBNT S04E06 | Hopeful Reads with Midnight Library & Addie LaRue
We have heard of the theme Uplit but sometimes a book is not thoroughly 'up' just quietly hopeful perhaps on humanity, getting through a rough patch or just sometimes straight-up outwitting the devil. We all need a little patch of sunlight breaking through stormy clouds sometimes (although the storm-clouds itself can be blessing in disguise). Listen on as we discuss books themed around, 'what is a good life' and 'roads not taken.'

Bonus episode! We thought it's be fun to careen out of our usual wheelhouse and tell you folks some cerita hantu.

In lieu of Halloween you will get an original story written by us and one by our producer, Jeff. So three stories, never heard before. Be kind and enjoy it!

TBNT S04E03 | Marriage in Monogamy vs. Infidelity in Here is the Beehive
We are delving into a topic today and it's the 'M' word... yup marriage. Having read Sue Miller's Monogamy and Sarah Crossan's Here is the Beehive almost back to back we were taken aback by how many similar themes it touches. So join us as we peel back the layers of matrimony like the proverbial onion, it's pungent and there might be tears but cooked long and slow it might be still be a dish worth committing to.
