Everything Is F*cked
- A Book About Hope
- By: Mark Manson
- Narrated by: Mark Manson
- Length: 7 hrs and 2 mins
In Everthing Is F*cked, Mark Manson turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing from the pool of psychological research on these topics, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, and Tom Waits, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment, and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive.

The Trauma Cleaner
- By: Sarah Krasnostein
- Narrated by: Rachael Tidd
- Length: 9 hrs and 17 mins
Sandra Pankhurst founded her trauma cleaning business to help people whose emotional scars are written on their houses. From the forgotten flat of a drug addict, to the infested home of a hoarder, Sandra enters properties and lives at the same time. But few of the people she looks after know anything of the complexity of Sandra's own life. Raised in an uncaring home, Sandra's miraculous gift for warmth and humour in the face of unspeakable personal tragedy, mark her out as a one-off and make this biography unmissable.
A brilliant narrative masterly voiced

A good listen
A sad poignant story. A chance to look in to a era in our society we should not be proud of. how we treated LGBTQ. this story is not about that though, nor is it about the seedier part of Communities, the harsh reality of life for those growing up less fortunate than others. I found this story about understanding how strong, courageous, compassionate and special we can be to others even when coming from traumatic experiences.
