Episode 3

Duration: 15 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FMLatest broadcast: on BBC Radio 4 FM

In this the 7th series of 'How Does that Make You Feel?' Martha's clients have made few changes to their circumstances.

Caroline is mildly disturbed by the fact that her recently returned husband is building a guillotine in the spare room. However she hasn't yet figured out what he might want to use it for. Meanwhile her blog on how to stay thin and be successful, which largely involves eating kale and shaved cardboard clippings, seems to be gaining a growing readership. Caroline's philosophy is that if people want to pay her be told how to eat rubbish in the deluded belief that its doing them some good, then who is she to deny them the recipes...

Shelagh Stephenson is the author of 'A Short History of Longing' and 'Guests Are Like Fish', recently heard on Radio 4.
