a dark comedy by Pippa Mackie

Taking inspiration from the galactic event of blackholes swallowing stars, Starman is a dark comedy about a 42-year-old man who has locked himself in his room for the rest of his life. Through his very unpopular podcast - Daryl (aka Starman) will take his internet “friends” on a journey into his chosen exile which may lead him to confront a part of himself he never knew existed.

This episode does have a trigger warning as it deals with strong emotional subject matter.

Alarm:  mental health and social alienation

a spiritual adventure by Gary Mok   
Lost Soul Animal Rescue

This episode is for young audiences and is centred around the tradition of Chinese ghost stories which normally focus on filial piety (duty to your ancestors). In this particular creation, Gary has added a twist on that concept by using animal “ghosts” to question our duty to nature instead.

a drama by Alexandria Haber   
The Women's Hour

Laila, a new mother and Margaret, a grieving widow share a wall. For different reasons, both women are reluctant to leave their apartments. Yet, despite having never crossed paths in real life, Laila and Margaret know a lot about each other because of the sounds that carry through the wall, in particular, the daily radio show, The Woman’s Hour, that Margaret listens to very loudly. Lately, a lot of the news is bad, especially for woman: Afghanistan, Texas. One day, Laila hears a different sound coming through her wall.
