Beautiful portraits of astonishing real lives

Where does What Goes On Here rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the most moving, beautiful and inspiring sets of interviews I have ever heard.

What was one of the most memorable moments of What Goes On Here?

The artist recounting the loss of her daughter and how she subsequently rebuilt her life was an incredibly powerful story.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Sam Walker is a masterful interviewer who asks searching yet compassionate questions to draw fascinating stories from her subjects. She also knows just when to step back and let them fill the space in the interview.

Any additional comments?

Each episode captures the joys, sorrows, failures and redemptions of a real life, lived hard.

Just Beautiful.

Great Series

I've loved all 4 series of this broadcast...there's nothing better than listening to other people's stories and to hear the variety and strength of each person's journey has been fascinating.

Please do more series...I've got withdrawal symptoms...
