Episode notes

Welcome to the penultimate episode of Series 3! Are you ready to be swept up in sequins and hairspray? Well, our new release is about a fictional Hollywood starlet and it might have you itching to watch some old movies. If you’re in the mood for some very intriguing real life, we have an Audible Original Podcast that promises to introduce you to some of the most daring and entertaining older people. Strap in for what is a wild and bizarre ride.

Our guests are here to shake things up! Audible editor Bryony shares an insanely gripping fiction pick about a virgin birth, which she couldn’t put down while on holiday. And we welcome Sunday Times Bestselling crime writer Clare Mackintosh, who can’t wait to recommend a chilling crime fiction pick that kept her on edge.
