Welcome to the You Heard It Here First series three finale. We wanted to end on a high so expect a lot of LOLs from this one. If you’re thinking of booking a family holiday, this week’s new release might make you think twice. If you’re after something a bit more highbrow, you’ll enjoy our trip to the Audible Theatre, which will leave you feeling cultured and informed.

Audible editor Gabe joins us and recommends a book that reminds us of how far we’ve come this year, before Careless author Kirsty Capes joins us to share an incredibly gripping piece of feminist historical non-fiction.

Welcome back to another fabulous episode of You Heard It Here First - the go-to podcast to find your next listen.

The action keeps coming as our guests join the show. Sam convinces us all to take on a 14 book epic fantasy that’s reminiscent of Lord of the Rings, and bestselling novelist Milly Johnson gushes about her love for a mentally gripping psychological thriller that sucked her in from the very first words.

In this episode we’re reviewing David Dimbleby’s intriguing podcast The Sun King before getting to grips with world history with Tim Marshall’s Prisoners of Geography.

We also hear a clip from author Emma Dabiri.

Horrible, Terrible, Glamorous Trap
26:16

In this episode, listen to why we fell in love with Tom Hanks’ dulcet tones as he narrates The Dutch House by Ann Patchett, then we turn up the heat to review the too-hot-to-handle Audible Original podcast It Burns by Marc Fennell.

Two eager Audible editors return to the podcast to persuade you to listen to some of their favourites: Psycho-logical by Dean Burnett and The Year of Less by Cait Flanders.

We round off with a little pomp and circumstance as Lucy Worsley enthuses about Queen Victoria.
