The One That Got A Gay

Have you ever found yourself in hot water ‘playing it straight’? Ever fallen in love with a gay person without realising it? Hear the other side of the story on The One That A Got A Gay as we explore the lives of gay, lesbian and other LGBTQ+ people who spent years ‘playing straight’ only to turn their lives upside down by coming out later in life. Statistics show the average age at which people come out is now 17. TOTGAG explores why there are so many people of that generation still coming out well in to their 20s, 30s and sometimes even later and how having to play straight has influenced them and the people around them.Each week, Emily and Alex delve in to a different person’s coming out story to understand the impact of being LGBTQ+ in a straight world and what they’ve learnt from years of being in the closet. Expect laughs, sobs and some great/terrible advice from our co-hosts and some compelling stories from our brave and wonderful guests. Read More

Kabul Falling

In August 2021, the Taliban regained control of Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. The takeover sent shockwaves throughout the country. It forced thousands of Afghans to leave their old lives behind and embark on a hellish journey for survival.

In this gripping, eight-episode podcast, Afghans themselves will tell you how it happened. You’ll hear stories about big risks, close calls, and unexpected moments of kindness — or luck — that changed everything. You’ll meet Afghan women and men from different walks of life, and even a young man who chose to fight with the Taliban — in his eyes, to protect the country he loves.

This is the story of a home ripped apart — and of a courageous new beginning.
