You've trained for years to achieve your ambition to become a doctor, but what happens when a mental health crisis forces you to leave the profession? That's exactly what happened to our guest Mairi Chong, who was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in the weeks after giving birth to her son. The effects were so severe she had to leave the job she loved as a GP, and rebuild her life again, coming to terms with the impact of the condition. That's when she turned to writing, and this week Mairi is celebrating the release of her first novel for Bloodhound Books - Death by Appointmentfeaturing sleuthing medic Cathy Moreland. It's a fascinating and uplifting interview that doesn't flinch from discussing the impact of mental health issues.
Also this week, Adrian and Rebecca ask if audiobooks can really help students to break their screen addictions, and we celebrate one of the most beloved books of the past forty years, the immortal Dear Zoo.
