What's Wrong With You?

What's Wrong With You?

Author: Dr Sarah Holper Narrator: Rupert Degas Release Date: 01/06/2021

'Funny, fascinating, entertaining and informative - like listening to an episode of Stephen Fry's QI.' Take a tour through your body and the many ways it can fail in What's Wrong with You? An Insider's Guide to Your Insides. Everybody has a body, and everybody gets sick. But unless you go to medical school, the mechanisms behind your medical symptoms remain a mystery. Why do you get diarrhoea when you're stressed? Why do both teenagers and bodybuilders get acne? Why do you feel like yawning when you're tired, nervous, or when you think about yawning (like now)? Why do many men go bald, but women don't? Over a billion health-related Google searches - more than one in every 15 Google enquiries - are made every day. Ask 'Dr Google' about your headache or fever and it will spew forth a bewildering, and often terrifying list of possible diagnoses, invariably topped by brain cancer or a parasitic infection. What Dr Google won't tell you is the infinitely more interesting bit: what's actually going on in your body to make you feel sick. In What's Wrong With You? Dr Sarah Holper takes you on an extensive and highly entertaining tour through your body, explaining how its failings cause your medical symptoms. Packed with memorable patient encounters, cultural diversions, historical oddities and insider doctor secrets, Dr Holper arms you with the knowledge you need to understand why your body reacts to illness the way it does. If you've ever wondered why you're dizzy, burpy, baldy, chesty, deafy or sniffy - What's Wrong With You? is for you.

Author: Sulari Gentill Narrator: Rupert Degas Release Date: 01/11/2020

In fear for his life, American millionaire Daniel Cartwright changes his will, appointing his old friend Rowland Sinclair as his executor. Soon murder proves that fear well founded.

He is met with the outrage and anguish of Cartwright's family, who have been spurned in favour of a man they claim does not exist. Artists and gangsters, movie stars and tycoons all gather to the fray as elite society closes in to protect its own, and family secrets haunt the living. Rowland Sinclair must confront a world in which insanity is relative, greed is understood, and love is dictated; where the only people he can truly trust are an artist, a poet and a passionate sculptress.

All the Tears in China

All the Tears in China

Author: Sulari Gentill Narrator: Rupert Degas Release Date: 01/10/2020

Shanghai in 1935 is a twentieth-century Babylon, an expatriate playground where fortunes are made and lost, where East and West collide, and the stakes include life itself. Into this, Rowland Sinclair arrives from Sydney to represent his brother at international wool negotiations. Rowland is under strict instructions to commit to nothing... but a brutal murder makes that impossible. As suspicion falls on him, Rowland enters a desperate bid to find answers in a city as glitzy as it is dangerous, where tai-pans and tycoons rule, and politics and vice are entwined with commerce. Once again, the only people Rowland can truly trust are an artist, a poet and a free-spirited sculptress. "A sparkling crime series... Evelyn Waugh meets Agatha Christie..." - The Age

Brought to you by Penguin. Toru Okada's cat has disappeared and this has unsettled his wife, who is herself growing more distant every day. Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has started receiving.

Ghost Species

Ghost Species

Author: James Bradley Narrator: Rupert Degas Release Date: 01/04/2020

When scientist Kate Larkin joins a secretive project to re-engineer the climate by resurrecting extinct species, she becomes enmeshed in another, even more clandestine program to recreate our long-lost relatives, the Neanderthals. But when the first of the children, a girl called Eve, is born, Kate finds herself torn between her duties as a scientist and her urge to protect their time-lost creation. Set against the backdrop of hastening climate catastrophe, Ghost Species is an exquisitely beautiful and deeply affecting exploration of connection and loss in an age of planetary trauma. For as Eve grows to adulthood she and Kate must face the question of who and what she is. Is she natural or artificial? Human or non-human? And perhaps most importantly, as civilisation unravels around them, is Eve the ghost species, or are we? Thrillingly original, Ghost Species is embedded with a deep love and understanding of the natural world.
