In this self-described "addendum to the news", producer Stephen Lacey (now also at work on Warm Regards, a podcast about climate change) grapples with the stories behind the stories that have gripped us, or brings underreported subjects into fresh light. Episodes range in format, from interviews with writers - the author of an expose about Lance Armstrong - to narrative documentary features, like this instalment about the murder of an entire family. Sometimes it brings us stories not covered in the mainstream press, like a champion weightlifter's gender transition. Totally independent and intermittently released, it's worth the long wait between drinks.
