Who am I?

First time podcast writer, focussing on audio drama and comedy writing :) Based in the UK, I'm one of the creators of 'Dear Bastard!', streaming now on GoodPods. I want to be entertained: make me laugh, make up stories from your heads, add some drama and humour and I'm hooked! So many of you have amazing stories to tell, so create a world and add them to it! I also love single-voice narrated stories: not true crime, but true to life. History I didn't know. Politics I've never thought about. A story written well. I like to be drawn into an entire world or story - engrossed. I particularly love podcasts where you get sucked in, either by the narration, the shenanigans or the characters. Our show's apartment building - 17 Chekhov Gardens - is almost an extra character to us and it got me to thinking about other buildings and houses: what stories do they have to tell? Houses are fertile breeding grounds for crazy stories, and this list serves up humorous takes at living in apartments and shared houses. You may have a crazy roommate, or neighbour, or know someone who has taken on one home improvement project too many. Or, you may wonder what your realtors really get up to behind closed doors. If you're moving house, buying a house, selling a house or even just living in a house, this list will bring a giggle for sure!

My Show

What is my podcast about and/or how does it relate to the playlist topic you chose?

My podcast is pure sitcom: set in a house somewhere that's been divided into flats. So, we've created a world for you to fall into. All seems well from the outside – but within, the six residents are trapped in a never-ending group email thread that brings out the worst in everyone. As they try unsuccessfully to navigate their differences, minor problems like overfull bins and malfunctioning doorbells begin to escalate into passive-aggressive rows about invasive species in the garden, allegations of money-laundering and fraud, and shady remarks designed to make you laugh your head off.

If our show satirises the world of apartment buildings, this show satirises the world of real estate. No doubt our fictional neighbour Robbie would roll his eyes, this show hits the nail a *little* too much on the head!
