How Does That Make You Feel, 2010

How Does That Make You Feel was a long running BBC Radio comedy-drama that ran for fifty five episodes over eleven series between 2010 and 2019.  Episodes were typically fifteen minutes long.


Psychotherapist Martha is reasonably compassionate, but deep down she’s losing patience. It seems all her clients want to be something they are not, and it’s driving them (and her) out of their minds.

Each episode is presented as a fly-on-the-wall view of Martha’s sessions, each one shedding more light on the lives of her entertaining clients.
