Young Adult fiction is intended for people below the age of 18 but over half of its readers are actually older. Our guests are Brian Conaghan and Nikesh Shukla whose novels and podcasts tackle real issues (mental health, sexuality, drug addiction) that young people are facing now. In Brian Conaghan’s The M-Word, Maggie has taken so many hard knocks she’s earned the nickname Conker. Both Brian and Nikesh’s YA novel Coconut Unlimited masterfully capture the voices of closed off  teenagers. Join novelist and poet Elaine Feeney as she explores Brian and Nikesh’s novels and podcasts in a wide ranging conversation about grief, resilience and hope.
