In our latest podcast, we waffle on about the episodes of Corrie shown in the UK between the 23rd and the 27th September. If you like issues-based stories, you've come to the right place as that's certainly the common thread through this particular podcast. To start with, Street Talk sees us not only continuing last week's discussion of homophobia in football, but also the revelation of Paul's historic sexual abuse from Kel and Asha's experimentation with skin lightening creams. Fortunately, there are still some lighter moments to chat about, including the escalating feud between Adam and Gary, and some excellent Evelyn scenes, but then things go serious again in the middle section, which is a discussion of Corrie's use of issues-based stories over the years. Is it important for Corrie to tackle these stories? Are they done well? Are there too many now? To what extent are they just used to go for awards? There's certainly a lot to discuss down this particular rabbit hole! Next up on the podcast, we visit The Kabin to chat about the reveal of Corrie's 2020 Dancing on Ice entrant, then we round off the show with some of your thoughts on the recent Sinead storyline in the feedback segment.
