Broadcaster and columnist Katie Puckrik makes her choice of the best of BBC Radio.
This week we have stories to stir the artistic muse, raise the spirits, and music to soothe the soul. We go night swimming with Alison Goldfrapp; Posh Spice inspires a man to live his best life, and Michael Caine gets publicly shamed by a swarm of bees. There's the joy and the agony of being honoured for services to the British Empire. We meet gay dads, well groomed Vikings and endure medieval punishments. And we take a poetic journey to a contaminated island.
