And finally, we’re joined by novelist Antonia Hayes to talk about empathy and advocacy in fiction, following the release of her debut novel Relativity.

In this week’s podcast we look at ACMI’s blockbuster exhibition dedicated to David Bowie. Then we look at UnReal, the TV drama about Reality TV. And finally we chat about the adult colouring book craze and whether it represents the dumbing down of our readers, one crayon at a time.
