The Apology Line
The latest series from true crime powerhouse Wondery tells the story of a confessional hotline and how it consumed the life of its creator Allan Bridge – or “Mr Apology” – who was privy to crimes big and small from anonymous callers. The police, we learn, were in and out of his life for several years as he heard confessions from shoplifters to murderers. That also means they were part of his wife Melissa’s life, too, who – as luck would have it – hosts this series. Brilliantly murky. Hannah J Davies
