Poetic polymath Ross Sutherland leaves the safety of his wardrobe recording studio to present a special live edition of his award-winning podcast series Imaginary Advice. Ross is always exploring new forms of storytelling; he has recorded love monologues at drum and bass raves, made cut-up poetry out of the Today Programme, and cross-bred Jay Z’s Black Album with the Tate Modern’s audioguide.

Written and presented by Ross Sutherland (BBC2’s Missing Episode; Stand By For Tape Back Up), Imaginary Advice has grown into one of the most popular storytelling podcasts in the UK (Best Fiction Podcast, The British Podcast Awards; Best Podcasts for Fiction, The Telegraph; Top Fifty Podcasts, Stylist).
