-  A PODCAST  -

... where the extraordinary stories of ordinary people get an airing...

 A series of audio stories

On Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher,  Tuneln + Alexa, iHeartRadio 

What is it about?

The airing cupboard is a curation of short audio stories (mostly around 15-20 minutes) almost exclusively recorded in the confines of my airing cupboard.

These stories are your stories, the listeners' stories, sent to this website via the 'contact me' page. They are mostly told by me,  Zoé Brown. Sometimes, if the protagonist wishes to do so, some clips of his or her voice is integrated into the audio track. Often the protagonist prefers staying anonymous. Respecting their wishes is paramount to me.

These stories remind us that the 'everydays' are the 'meaningfuls' of life.

In an era of social media, we are constantly hit by false reality and bombarded with carefully put together images of perfection and perfect lives, ... often a lot of lies.  Because life for most of us, ordinary people, is not about beauty, stardom or amazing events. It is about happiness, distress, fulfilment, emptiness... It is about "the everyday" and the imprints that people and events leave on our souls, good or bad. It is often about convergence of lives and serendipity.

There is no ordinary in normality

What great stories, great delivery, great format and listening to Zoe’s voice and accent is like cleaning your ears with silk! It reminds me of listening to friends’ stories and waiting to impart a similar one you have yourself. The kinds of conversations that go on over drinks into the late night and you wonder where the time has gone.

I am so enjoying these stories - rather like a good book I am left thinking about the characters and events for sometime afterwards. Compelling, moving and relatable. Cannot wait for more.

These stories are beautifully told, they envelop you and take you on a journey through someone’s treasured memories. Truly heartwarming. Each one has its own magic. A delightful curation of extraordinary moments.

Great concept. Short stories lasting about 15 to 20 min (not the usual never ending 45 minutes that most podcasts seem to broadcast) about the beauty and magic of normal lives. Great sound and great use of music. Is she really recording from her airing cupboard?? I LOVE this. I

am hyptonised and wrapped in comfort when listening to these stories. More please.
