The Forever Conversations are presented in partnership with John Green’s new book, “Turtles All The Way Down”.
The Forever Conversations is our series of conversations exploring mental health issues and some of the struggles that we face whilst growing up. The Forever Conversations are presented in partnership with John Green’s new book, “Turtles All The Way Down”.
Whether its anxiety disorders, stress, depression or one of the other many different types of challenges that we, as young people, face – it’s fair to say that as we’re growing up we are constantly realising different ways we want to change and develop, hopefully for the better. Almost our entire teenage-hood is full of self-doubt and drama – but when we take hold of our development, when we become happy with who we are the ways we want to be better citizens, that is when we truly start growing up.
In John Green’s new book “Turtles All The Way Down”, he gives us…
Matthew Stiles answers the listener question: Why is innocent until proven guilty not respected anymore?
On his radio show every Thursday, Matthew Stiles breaks down some of the most contentious new stories from the past week and answers the questions you can’t quite work out the answers to…
The principle of innocent until proven guilty has been a staple of Western legal culture for hundreds of years, acting as the underpinning of our entire legal system.

We take you on a guided tour of the best, the good, and the quite good's of the week
It’s been quite an iffy week for new music, but it’s good to know that in the world we live in, where up is down and the price of avocados is skyrocketing, at least Zedd can make a hit (even if it does sound a lot like his previous hit).
Featured Track: Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey – The Middle
Zedd has been one of the top DJs for a while, and he dominated 2017 with Alessia Cara-collaboration ‘Stay’, and it looks like 2018 will be his year again with ‘The Middle’. The song sounds a lot like ‘Stay’ but, to be fair, if it’s not broken why fix it?
Maren Morris is a star-to-be and has already been nominated for two Grammy’s in 2017 including Best New Artist. We’re still not quite sure what Grey is but, judging by the press image, it’s the two guys…
