Customer Reviews

Anthea Polony ,

Beautiful, engaging, bite-sized.

As above. :) Slows you down.

Monmon15678 ,

My favourite podcast!

I love how the stories unravel, I listened to the entire season 2 in 1 day! Its the most exquisite stories that you haven't ever heard of before, and almost nothing to do with love yet everything to do with it. I want more! 😁

Laurenrobyn ,

Another unmissable series

Like Criminal, this podcast defies any real definition or explanation. Yes, it’s about love. But it’s never the kind of love story you expect. I love the fact that I never have any idea where the story is going. Phoebe has got me hooked once again!
