Beyond Kidding Audiobook

Beyond Kidding

Author: Lynda Clark Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: October 2020

When Robert (or Kidder, as his best friend calls him) decides to impress at a job interview by making up a son, he discovers that maintaining the lie is far harder than he thought - so he invents a story that `Brodie' has been kidnapped. After all, it's not like they're going to find the fake boy. But a few weeks later, Kidder receives a call to collect his nonexistent son from the police station, a boy who looks exactly like the picture he photoshopped... "This is a remarkable debut, written with great warmth and wit. By turns devastating and hilarious, Lynda Clark's Beyond Kidding had me from the very start, and it didn't let me go." SARAH JACKSON, author of Pelt and winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize "A dark and quirky debut - funny, sad, thought-provoking and unexpected." EMMA D'COSTA, Commonwealth Writers

Clear Bright Future: A Radical Defence of the Human Being Audiobook

Clear Bright Future: A Radical Defence of the Human Being

Author: Paul Mason Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: May 2019

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Clear Bright Future by Paul Mason, read by Finlay Robertson. Our world order is under pressure as never before. From new authoritarian regimes in the US, Turkey and Russia, to the imminent break-up of the European Union and a social media awash with intolerance, things look set to fall apart just as abruptly as the Soviet Union did some thirty years ago. How did we get here, and what do we do now? In this searching new exploration of our crisis, Paul Mason argues that at its heart lies an attack on the idea of humanity itself. As the free-market system reduced us to two-dimensional consumers, genetics has stripped us of our belief in humans as agents of change. And now the dystopian forces of the authoritarian right are pushing the world towards a pre-modern understanding of the human being: one that aims to destroy the very concept of universal human rights, and create a new world in which we are biologically destined to form hierarchies based on ethnicity and gender, and to obey the demands of religious conformity. If these forces are not stopped, Mason warns, we will relive something even worse than the 1930s. In response, he demands a radical defence of the human being: a reinvention of humanism; a re-assertion of the universality of human rights; and a struggle for a society where biologically determined hierarchies are abolished. We have the power to imagine and design a better system. We must, Mason concludes, reach deep into the history and experience of resistance in order to be our own saviours.

Cross Everything Audiobook

Cross Everything

Author: Henry Scowcroft Narrator: Finlay Robertson, Henry Scowcroft Release Date: February 2021

A heart-wrenching, fascinating and deeply moving take on a disease that half of us will experience at some point in our lives. When Henry Scowcroft's partner Zarah was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer in 2016, their world fell apart. An award-winning science writer for Cancer Research UK, Henry had spent 14 years at the coal-face of cancer research, but now the disease had infiltrated his personal life too. In Cross Everything - his first book - Henry uses this unique perspective to tell the story of Zarah's illness, how he tried in vain to use everything he'd learnt in his professional career to try to save her, and in doing so, how he realised that even a career writing about cancer daily isn't enough preparation for what comes next. Along the way, Cross Everything brings the listener up to speed with the latest understanding of cancer - a complex disease with a Darwinian capacity to outsmart its host. "A moving, compelling and vital book, that sheds much needed light on the very latest understanding of cancer." SIDDHARTHA MUKHERJEE, author of The Emperor of All Maladies 'Sensitive and informed. Essential for anyone supporting a loved one through cancer.' Deborah James, writer and broadcaster

Drums in the Distance: Journeys Into the Global Far Right Audiobook

Drums in the Distance: Journeys Into the Global Far Right

Author: Joe Mulhall Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: July 2021

A terrifying and timely look at the spread of far-right movements across the globe Joe Mulhall knows what it's like to stare fascism in the face. For a decade, often undercover at significant personal risk, he has investigated hate groups. He infiltrated a US white supremacist militia, set up a fake Ku Klux Klan branch, has been on countless street marches with violent far-right groups across Europe, and got inside some of the most important 'alt-right' meetings ever held. Brazil, India and the US are still in thrall to authoritarian populism, and far-right views have become steadily normalised in mainstream politics. Mulhall's dramatic experiences on the front line of anti-fascist activism, coupled with his academic research, clearly explain the roots of both elected and non-elected far-right movements across the globe. Above all, he concludes, the far right should not be dehumanised - they are normal people, but with dangerous beliefs that can be defeated. 'Few, if any, are better placed to write a book of this breadth and scale than Joe Mulhall.' Mark Townsend, Home Affairs editor of the Observer 'Joe has had a unique view of the far right over the past decade as it transformed from a marginal subculture into one of the defining political currents of our time. He understands how these groups think and operate, and is perfectly placed to guide readers through this disturbing but vital story.' Daniel Trilling, journalist and author of Lights In The Distance: Exile and Refuge at the Borders of Europe

Flip Back Audiobook

Flip Back

Author: Andrew Cartmel Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: May 2019

It's all Tinkler's fault. If it weren't for his obsession with the 1970s band, Black Dog, none of this would have happened. The members of Black Dog performed an infamous publicity stunt on Halig Island: they burned a million dollars on an enormous bonfire. But the stunt backfired, splitting the band for good, and increasing the value of their final, recalled album tenfold. The Vinyl Detective and Nevada accept the challenge to hunt a copy down for Tinkler, but soon realize that the search is going to be their most dangerous yet. Narrowly avoiding a killing spree, negotiating deranged fans, and being pursued by hack celebrity Stinky Stamner, they discover that perhaps all was not as it seemed on Halig Island-and that in the embers of that fire are clues of a motive for murder... The fourth book in the hilarious and enthralling Vinyl Detective mystery series.

Impact: Reshaping capitalism to drive real change Audiobook

Impact: Reshaping capitalism to drive real change

Author: Sir Ronald Cohen Narrator: Finlay Robertson, Sir Ronald Cohen Release Date: August 2020

WHAT KIND OF WORLD DO WE WANT TO LIVE IN? Envisage a world where inequality is shrinking, where natural resources are regenerated, and people can benefit from shared prosperity. In IMPACT, Sir Ronald Cohen proposes a new theory about how the Impact Revolution will enable us to achieve systemic social and environmental improvement. Impact investing is about creating a chain reaction. One that brings innovation to the stakeholders whose engagement is crucial to tackling massive social and environmental challenges at scale. One that changes the mindset and behavior of investors, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, social organizations, big business, governments and the general public and places impact at the center of our decision-making. The Impact Revolution is already transforming the way we think about social responsibility, business models and investment. It is beginning to change our economies, turning them into powerful engines that drive capital to achieve impact alongside profit. We can already see it marking the twenty-first century as much as the tech revolution marked the twentieth. Billions of people's lives depend on the success of the Impact Revolution. There has never been a more tangible opportunity.

Lethal Shot: A Royal Marine Commando in Action Audiobook

Lethal Shot: A Royal Marine Commando in Action

Author: Robert Driscoll Narrator: Finlay Robertson Release Date: June 2019

Rob Driscoll, former sergeant with 42 Commando, Royal Marines, served tours in Iraq, Kuwait and Kosovo. A born leader of fighting men, he also endured three tours in Afghanistan. The third of those will go down in history as one of the UK military's darkest hours, for it marked the first time a British serviceman has been tried for a murder on the battlefield since the Second World War. That man was 'Marine A', Sergeant Alexander Blackman, Rob Driscoll's friend and fellow NCO in 42 Commando, and on the day in question they were commanding patrols within a few hundred yards of each other. Few men know what really went on that day in Helmand Province. Rob Driscoll is one, and, like Blackman, knew only too well the privations and frustrations of fighting an ubiquitous and tenacious enemy without sufficient resources and support. Yet Lethal Shot is more than a compelling insight into one of the most controversial and divisive cases in recent military history. It is a clear-eyed account of life on active service with the Royal Marines, of incursions into war-torn countries where chaos and anarchy ruled - and of men risking their lives daily only too often to find that they would not be backed up by politicians at home. In charting its author's career as a Royal Marine Commando, it unflinchingly demonstrates the real-life horrors of engaging at close quarters with enemies such as the Taliban. Rob Driscoll received a Mention in Despatches for his last tour of 'Afghan', the citation reading: 'He never bows to fatigue or danger and there is no doubt that his remarkable acts of selflessness saved a number of lives for which he deserves significant formal recognition.'
