Growl is about outsiders, like a little girl named Mo’ and a street dog, who find a different way to connect in the big bad city. Written by Nick Angel, narrated by Nene Nwoko with original music by Kati Brien and Julian Külpmann on drums.
A retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s classic. A small boy is the only one in the city to cry out the “emperor isn’t wearing any clothes”. Since he bravely told the truth, the emperor appoints him his heir. The story tracks the boy’s path to emperor… Comedy/horror.
A journalist visits an Eastern city inhabited by people of different customs, living on the opposite banks of a river. A girl and a boy act out a philosophical story about fate and an ordinary person’s role in predetermining positive change. We recommend headphones for this soundscape!

A sweet serenade about the duties of sustainable love. An artist and his Kristallweizen-drinking muse: one perennially hopeful and hopeless; the other loaded; settle on something selfless. Frivolous, fun, heart-warming. For more, see episode notes.
This story explores veganism, sentience, human primacy, and Deep Ecology. Peter Singer eat your heart out… literally. Does a murderer have more moral status than an old tree anyway? Wicked, slightly twisted fun. For more, see episode notes.
A dark fairytale about an orphan girl, the second world war, and the royal houses of Europe. I wrote the story after visiting Birkenau and reading Primo Levi who gave more of himself than any other writer I can think of. If a writer should be like a fireman and run towards the metaphorical ‘burning building’, he did it harder, and at the ultimate cost. For more, see episode notes.
