    Kat Sadler's Screen Time

    Kat Sadler's Screen Time

    Kat Sadler’s Screen Time is a fun guide/cautionary tale of how young people today live their lives through their phones and social media. Kat (daily screen time 8hrs 49 mins) meets Abbie (daily screen time 1 hr 26 mins) and starts a relationship, but will their obsession with how the relationship comes across online lead to its downfall?

    Ensuring no listener is left behind by the indecipherable terminology and online etiquette of the under 30s, Kat is joined by extremely offline Alex MacQueen who will stop Kat and make her explain things like the ‘For You Page’ and ‘Soft Launching’.

    Now You're Asking with Marian Keyes and Tara Flynn

    Now You're Asking with Marian Keyes and Tara Flynn

    Thongs, personal grooming, rights of way across fields and 'going non-contact' get the Now You're Asking treatment in the first episode of this new series with Marian Keyes and Tara Flynn addressing real life problems sent in by their listeners.

    The first series was welcomed by listeners and critics.
    "Both are warm and kind enough to not only be funny but also offer genuinely thoughtful, if left-field, advice." (Miranda Sawyer, The Observer)
    "Keyes and Flynn are my new favourite double-act." (Jane Anderson - Radio Times)
    "I found their compassion endlessly soothing." (Rachel Cunliffe - The New Statesman)

    Marian Keyes is a multi award-winning writer, with a total of over 30 million books sold to date in 33 languages. Her close friend Tara Flynn is an actress, comedian and writer. Together, these two friends have been through a lot, and now want to use their considerable life experience to help solve the biggest - and smallest - of their listeners' problems.

    From dilemmas about life, love and grief, to the perils of laundry or knowing what to say at a boring dinner, we’ll find out what Marian and Tara would recommend - which might not solve the problem exactly, but will make us all feel a bit better.

    Recorded in Dublin with emails received from listeners around the world, the hosts invite you to pull up a chair at their virtual kitchen table as they read and digest their inbox.

    Got a problem you want Marian and Tara to solve? Email: marianandtara@bbc.co.uk.

    Producer: Steve Doherty.
    A Giddy Goat production for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Sounds

Sweet. Bitter-sweet.

Love the podcast, but yesterday when I wanted to play one or two funnies of found over the holiday time to a.griend, all but 4 episodes were gone - I hope this is a temporary thing. As I can't remember who the comedians were. I just assumed the list would also was be on iTunes? Perhaps it's on the BBC website. Let's hope.

Not a Fan

This podcast is not my cup of tea, unless you want to listen to people being idiotic on purpose.
