    Renegade Radio presents: Lone Passage

    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

    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

    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.'

    TBNT S04E05 | Live Interview with Joshua Kam + Extra Spoilers

    We did a LIVE interview with Joshua Kam on his award-winning book How the Man In Green Saved Pahang and Possibly the World with Lit Books. Here is an edited version of the interview and a never before heard SPOILER section right at the end. This is definitely one of the more interesting books released locally this year.

    TBNT S04E03 | Marriage in Monogamy vs. Infidelity in Here is the Beehive

    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.
