The Awkward Silence: sketch comedians
"He was splayed across the floor, wasn't he, like a lover waiting for you to come to bed." How did we, The Awkward Silence, go from supporting Westlife at the O2 to being too afraid to leave our homes, recording an improvised podcast as our only possible creative outlet? Here, we tell the whole sorry tale. The story is a sad one, and two words sum it succinctly: 'Lord' and 'Craven'.  Disgraced is an improvised podcast by The Awkward Silence. www.theawkwardsilence.co.uk Music: Comic Plodding by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/3533-comic-plodding License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/

Trenton Snips: children's author
The author of beloved kids books like Frozen Hedgehog, Tiny Snake and The Sausage And The Swan, Trenton Snips took his own traumatic childhood and turned it into art. A cherished author, he had it all - until one day he decided to use his platform to vociferously express his political opinions. Here, he discusses the omnipresent gremlin in his work and why he was forced to pivot to gibbons.

Ernie Bunce: goalkeeper
Ernie Bunce was one of the most controversial players ever to grace a football pitch. But an increasingly violent goalkeeping style saw Bunce go from 'Ernie the eccentric goalie' to 'Ernie the irredeemable shithead'. Here, he explains why he regrets nothing and what he whispers to the pigs on his farm in Devon.

Hank Gurbidge: Formula One driver
You might know him as the Durex Dude. You may never have seen him without a helmet or a condom on his head. But beneath the latex and underneath the racing helmet, stood Hank Gurbidge, a complex and troubled man. Here, he describes his foray into fashion and why he has been reduced to racing cyclists in the streets.

Basil Garvey: model
"I very nearly killed him; I very nearly killed myself." You might recognise the name Basil Garvey. You've seen his chin on numerous ad campaigns including Armani, Paco Rabane and KP Peanuts. Here, he describes how one moment on a Japanese mountain almost brought it all crumbling down.

Bernard Clant: graphic street artist
"One mistake and I could be back in prison." Trailblazing graphic street artist Bernard Clant never played by the rules. Here, he tells us how this approach - and, more directly, his fear of dogs - came to  ruin a once glittering career.

Alan Bray: playwright
"I'm not apologising." Alan Bray OBE is perhaps the most controversial playwright of his generation. Here, he discusses the four plays he's written, and why the most recent almost sent him to prison for crimes against public decency.
