With Patrick Ness

Lauren is joined by Patrick Ness, whose best-selling novel A Monster Calls has been adapted for the stage. Plus, a cathartic World Cup Commiserations People's Playlist.

Lauren is joined by Patrick Ness, whose best-selling novel A Monster Calls has been adapted for the stage, and is currently playing at London's Old Vic Theatre.

We also enjoy another half hour of music suggested by our listeners for this week's People's Playlist. Football WAS coming home but, until it does, here's some musical catharsis in our World Cup Commiserations Playlist - featuring The Streets, Ella Fitzgerald, Public Enemy, Fatboy Slim and Cast.

There's more new music from Childish Gambino for our Just Added playlist, and we pause for a Headphones Moment from Max Cooper.
