    Introducing: Who Robs a Banksy?

    Introducing: Who Robs a Banksy?

    Hey Undiscovered listeners, we've got a brand new show for you!
    From Podimo and Message Heard, 'Who Robs a Banksy?' is the story of a man who kidnapped one a Banksy’s statue in broad daylight from the middle of central London, and held it to ransom. The fact that someone would kidnap a Banksy statue is pretty absurd already, but the story of why it happened, how the statue vanished again after it was kidnapped, and how it was mysteriously put up for auction over 10 years later is even wilder. It all comes down to 1 man, and a 2 decade long vendetta. It's a story will take us on a journey through UK’s most subversive sub-cultures: from art heists and art terrorists to 80s football hooliganism, the 90s illegal rave scene, and even fetish parties. While all the while, we try to track down one of the most elusive anonymous artists in the world. All to discover…who robs a Banksy??

    The Right to Die?

    The Right to Die?

    Dying with dignity or playing god? Despite drawing support across a broad coalition on religious, medical and moral grounds, the question of legalising assisted dying in the UK remains unanswered. Today, we meet people immersed in both sides of the debate - and ask if Britain should give people the right to die.

Sad to have found this and it’s no longer running.

The stories are engaging, the interviews are well done, and the music is on point. I binged almost all the episodes in a day.

Meh

I can see why they didn’t do another season. Quite an underwhelming show
