F**ked Up Bedtime Stories

Series Two

Writers in the second series of the podcast include Chris Bush, Kwame Owusu and Yasmin Joseph.

Strange stories for stranger times. With the contemporary world being the troubled, complicated, messy place it is – difficult enough for us to wrap our conscious minds around – we want to interrogate the ugly underbelly of what haunts our unconscious minds.

F**ked Up Bedtime Stories (for Adults) consists of 7 stories from 7 writers, read by leading actors and put out as a podcast and listened to by audiences right before bedtime, all exorcising different and unique horrors from our world and from our lives.
