If GrownUpLand is a place, then we got a bit lost along the way.

How does jealousy impact our happiness? How can we overcome the fear of rejection? How does anger, guilt and lust shape our everyday lives? Sophie Duker, Heidi Regan and Ned Sedgwick talk honestly about their lives. Nothing is off limits.

Each week a special guest helps to answer listener questions and candidly shares their experiences, from failed dates and bizarre confrontations to guilty pleasures and worst nightmares. And every week the charming Steve Ali, a refugee from Syria now living, working and podcasting in the UK, helps to put it all into perspective.

Co-created by Deborah Frances-White for The Spontaneity Shop and BBC Radio 4.
