Highlights from the first show include a series of sketches in which a goose has enrolled as a police officer, somehow getting through the very tight vetting procedures. There’s a character sceptical about time, and a doll-baby so realistic she’s more of a nightmare than a toy.
The show is written and performed largely by people new to radio.
