Meet Dani.

Dani, with an i. Also, Dani with a podcast series who isn’t exactly chuffed to be back home living with her parents and younger brother. As she attempts to record her latest update and compound the lie that her life is actually great, a series of unintentional interruptions reveal the truth. A truth that exposes what Dani has been hiding. The truth about being 31, losing her job and living back home.

You’ll meet Dani, her family and maybe even a lost dog called George in this 10 minute audio play titled Dani Dives In, the fourth in a series of eight called On the Street Where We Live

You can’t come to our place, so we’ll come to yours.
On The Street Where We Live explores love, tragedy and redemption; hope, compassion and forgiveness. It’s funny and upbeat; tragic and heart-wrenching. It’s about real people leading unreal lives. It’s about the times we’re living through. It’s about the streets we’re living on.
