On the Thursdays with no new AMT, we crank up the spoken word audio and have a Thursday Listening Party.

What good stuff have you been listening to this month? I loved:
• The Accidental Gay Parents episode of The Longest Shortest Time; and now there’s a second instalment.
• The ‘Last Chance to Evacuate Earth’ episode of Here Be Monsters, about the Heaven’s Gate cult.
• This very jaunty 99% Invisible about the AIDS red ribbon.
• Next on my audio list: fifty years of Annie Nightingale on the radio. Fifty! I interviewed Annie last year, and she still seemed completely excited about and unjaded by her work, despite having done half a century of it.
Catch Olly on the Guardian’s Tech Weekly and LBC. Martin has a new episode of The Global Lab about knowing what rhinos look like before you could watch a David Attenborough documentary about rhinos. And in the new Allusionist, I find out about why stepmothers are so evil, with the assistance of Aaron Mahnke from Lore (a podcast which will be right up many of your streets, I’ll wager).
