Do you ever think about your body and how it all works? Like really properly think about it? The human body is extraordinary and fascinating and, pretty weird.

Adam Kay is the author of the book Kay’s Anatomy and he's going to tell you what’s actually going on in there, and answer the really important questions, like: Are bogeys safe to eat? Look, if your nose is going to all that effort of creating a snack, the least we can do is check out its n See for privacy information.
Ben Bailey Smith (previously Doc Brown) has written a book! It's a funny, big-hearted story about family, friendship and how far one boy will go to get a laugh.  For thirteen-year-old Carmichael Taylor, life is one big joke - in a good way. He just can't understand why no one else seems to find everything as funny as he does. When Car is filmed stumbling into performing a piece of hilarious stand-up at the school talent show - targeting his family, school and friends - the footage ends up creating international infamy. But with the promise of fame and fortune comes trouble, and it's up to Car to decide what or who he's willing to risk to chase his comedy dream. See for privacy information.
Merdyn the Wild is from the Dark Ages. He’s the world’s greatest Warlock (don’t call him a wizard), banished to the 21st century for bad behaviour, and he’s about to create a whole load of trouble for Rose, aged 12. Rose is a totally ordinary girl, on a mission to mend her broken family. Bubbles is Rose’s guinea pig. He just poos a lot. When Rose bumps into Merdyn and discovers what he is, she quickly realises that he could be just what she needs. Rose agrees to help Merdyn navigate the confusing ways of the modern world (things like: the lidded bowl in the bathroom is NOT a sink, it’s a TOILET, so definitely DON’T wash your face in it) if Merdyn gives her a spell to fix her family in return. Now they just need to hide him in the shed without Rose’s mum noticing, track down Merdyn’s magic staff and find a way to send Merdyn back through time to the Dark Ages. What could possibly go wrong…? From the writer of the Paddington 2 movie and writer and star of Horrible Histories, this hilariously silly, heartfelt adventure with a historical twist is perfect for fans of David Walliams and David Baddiel. Available online and in all good bookshops! See for privacy information.
Comedian Dom Joly and CEO of the Trussell Trust Emma Revie join Bex. They’re chat about a new school poetry campaign by the Trussell Trust, with the topic of a Hunger-Free Future in the UK. In November 2020, we launched an ambitious campaign to create change – to build a movement of people who will work alongside the Trussell Trust to create a hunger free future. From March to August 2020, food banks in the Trussell Trust network gave out 1.2 million emergency food parcels. That’s one food parcel every 13 seconds and 2,600 of these went to children every day on average. This kind of help shouldn’t be needed. That’s why the Trussell Trust are calling for a hunger free future, and asking people just like you to stand with them and create a different future… Find out more about the Trussell Trust at  See for privacy information.
