Tez Talks: The Complete Series 1-3: BBC Radio 4 stand up comedy Audiobook

Tez Talks: The Complete Series 1-3: BBC Radio 4 stand up comedy

Author: Tez Ilyas Narrator: Tez Ilyas Release Date: August 2019

Breakthrough comedian Tez Ilyas presents a show for everyone interested in - or interested in becoming - a British Muslim. Everything you need to know is here - the do's, don'ts, and avoid-or-you'll-be-arresteds. How can Muslims integrate better? And who says they don't at the moment? And more importantly, what's Marks & Spencer or hipster beards got to do with it? What is the mysterious organisation that is the 'Muslim Community'? Who runs it? What does it do? And does Nadiya from Bake Off speak for them all? All these questions and more, as well as a handy cut-out-and-keep guide on being a British Muslim are tackled by Tez. Simultaneously a hilarious, joyous celebration of British-Muslim life - and a subversive, Tez Talks is a thoughtful satire on society's attitudes to Islam.

The Sacred Art of Joking Audiobook

The Sacred Art of Joking

Author: James Cary Narrator: James Cary Release Date: August 2019

'Having worked for many years at the coalface of comedy, sorting the dross from the combustible, James Cary is uniquely qualified to write this book.' Milton Jones, comedian and panellist on BBC2's Mock the Week Every few weeks a politician, pundit or soap star causes a media storm by making a gaffe or tweeting a joke that some people do not find funny. Comedy is very hard to get right and yet we think it's important to have a sense of humour and not take yourself too seriously. On the other hand, a sense of humour failure can lead to losing your friends, your twitter account, your job, your career and, in some cases, your life. James Cary knows about this. He is a sitcom writer who's written jokes about bomb disposal in Afghanistan (Bluestone 42), defended comments about Islam by Ben Elton on Newsnight, been on a panel with radical Muslim cleric Anjem Choudary, sits on the General Synod of the Church of England and somehow managed to co-write episodes of Miranda. An odd mix, but one that makes him very readable. This entertaining, breezy book, explains how comedy works (with jokes and quotes) and gives much-needed insights into the controversy surrounding humour.

Lies We Tell Mothers: A True Story Audiobook

Lies We Tell Mothers: A True Story

Author: Suzy K Quinn Narrator: Karen Cass Release Date: August 2019

Bestselling author of the Bad Mother books Suzy K Quinn reveals the truth behind the lies we tell mothers, one sleepless night at a time. Suzy and Demi were carefree twenty-somethings. They had fun! They didn’t have responsibilities! And then they decided to have a baby. Goodbye lazy weekends, hello sleepless nights, arguments and an addiction to industrial-strength hot chocolate. In the midst of this major life change, Suzy discovered that most parenting advice should be taken with a pinch of salt—or ten. For example: #1 Lie—Just go with your mother’s instinct. But what if your instinct is telling you to hide under the stairs? #10 Lie—Your new baby will tell you what it needs. Not if it can’t talk it won’t. #23 Lie—You should never bribe your children. You will ALWAYS bribe your children. Follow Suzy on the ultimate make-over—from nervous-wreck new mother to happy families. In this hilarious and refreshingly honest account for parents who prefer the realistic to the utopian, Suzy debunks the myths and takes us all along for the (bumpy) ride.

Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken) Audiobook

Zen Bender: A Decade-Long Enthusiastic Quest to Fix Everything (That Was Never Broken)

Author: Stephanie Krikorian Narrator: Tiffany Morgan Release Date: August 2019

Forty, chronically single, and up an extra twenty pounds, TV news producer Stephanie Krikorian fell victim to The Great Recession, finding herself suddenly unemployed. One unwanted pregnancy away from being a Lifetime Original Movie, Stephanie had to reinvent herself . . . and fast. So, to keep her head above water, she started ghostwriting self-help and diet books for a variety of well-known experts. However, she didn't just write each book she took on, she lived it-chanting, journaling, reflecting, reframing-whatever it took to get deep into the heart of each project. And then, as her ghost-writing business grew, she started reading other self-help books as well-for 'research.' Or so she told herself. That's when things went next level. Overwhelmed by the sheer number of life fixes available, Stephanie scrambled to plug the multiple holes that surely must have existed in her mind, body, and soul. She went on what turned out to be a near decade long Zen Bender. She hit the guru circuit hard, like it was her job-no psychic, class, coach, fixer, or self-help book left behind. Zen Bender is a collection of witty, moving, insightful stories, bookended with both the zany words of wisdom Stephanie picked up during her decade seeking personal growth and enlightenment, and some more concrete, grounded advice of her own.

Bold - Her Liberation Audiobook

Bold - Her Liberation

Author: Toya J Narrator: Toya J Release Date: August 2019

Forget about societal expectations of a woman for a moment where "women should be submissive." Women who embrace their sexuality can be viewed as "fast or immoral." Depending on your culture, women should not have an opinion about sex, and there is that unspoken requirement about being a virgin but still having experience. Women should have the right curves, but not too curvy, maybe skinny. Women should act, talk and look a certain way that is often defined by one's culture: what was heard and seen. It is impossible and unrealistic to live up to the expectations of society. The pressure created for women in today's society can be so daunting and overwhelming. Unfortunately, or maybe not, in this gripping book of poetry, Toya did not sugar-coat her feelings to fit into the invisible box that society created for women. Toya defied all odds when she rose above her depression and physical pain, like the mythical phoenix bird. Even her very close encounter with mortality in 1996 did not prepare Toya for the dramatic sequence of events that she experienced after her injury on February 22, 2017. Although Toya was surrounded by her doting family, she felt all alone. Her family suspected that she suffered emotional pain and tried their best to support her, but this was not enough. Toya wore her mask well as her need for companionship and sexual intimacy amplified. She struggled with her emotional rollercoaster ride as well as her embarrassment for her lustful desires. Perplexed and flabbergasted, Toya wrestled with this dangerous concoction of depression and sensual desires. Toya resorted to writing and found escape in the underworld of her fantasy land. Toya's excursion empowered and led her to the ultimate freedom that she sought.
