    The Accidental Adventures of Tommy Squeaker

    The Accidental Adventures of Tommy Squeaker

    Given the current climate, Two Cups Of Tea is switching briefly from stories from the old to stories for the young! Welcome to the first in an occasional series of kids audio adventures about the world’s smallest… and most flatulent dormouse. This first story’s a parp-filled treat for any bored kids (or childish grown-ups) who are amused by naughty bot-bot-noises. If you like it, then do share the wealth with other like-minded folk! Warning: May Contain Toots.

    Episode 26 - Wendy Mitchell

    A special show and a chance to meet Wendy Mitchell; an absolutely inspirational woman and author of Somebody I Used To Know, the best-selling autobiography about living with early onset Dementia. If there’s anyone with Dementia in your life this is a required listen. She talks with such resounding clarity and insight about her own condition and is still so upbeat. It was a privilege just to talk to her.

    Episode 23 - Peter Pallai

    One of the most extraordinary life stories I've ever heard. Born in 1938 in Budapest, Hungary, Peter was only a young child when he was separated from his parents when war broke out. A Jewish boy under the heel of the Nazis and then, after the war, the Communist regime, he went on to play a role in the attempted Hungarian revolution of 1956. He speaks with incredible honesty and vivid detail about how those events unfolded and goes on to speak of his time as a refugee in Britain before becoming a teacher and then joining the BBC World Service. Lovely man and an incredible life.

    Episode 22 - Linda Jackim Werlein

    Episode 22 - Linda Jackim Werlein

    Born in 1944 in the USA, she was raised in a place called Daylight, Tennessee. Her father was a fire and brimstone Preacher and they started out in a two room shack next to a snake-filled creek. From here, came a turbulent upbringing, four wildly different husbands and, against the odds, gaining admission to a prestigious, Ivy League university. She even talks candidly about her short spell in a psychiatric hospital when she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder.

Classic

A most enjoyable podcast. A great accompaniment to my morning walks here in the US ( as an expat Brit 😎🇬🇧). So glad Chris is recording these stories for posterity.
