Here’s what you can expect from this episode:

We kick things off with a review from you! Alright, alright, alright! We’ve got not one, but two customer reviews of Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey - don’t say we don’t spoil you!

Then we jump headfirst into You Are a Champion by Marcus Rashford and Carl Anka. Things take an unexpected turn as we review the dystopian sci-fi novel The Worldship Humility by R. R. Haywood.

Followed by, you guessed it, more recommendations, first from Audible editor Robin who’s been hooked by the mystery thriller The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex. And you’ll find out why writer and journalist Natalie Morris couldn’t get enough of Careless by Kirsty Capes. This one will have you searching for a 90s summer playlist.

We round off with Mel Giedroycs’s earnest and relatable Audible Session before we hear from Dan - a listener who wants you to check out his fantasy pick.
