Thomas Adam Curry • Another Mag Feb 2, 2021

"With all of Love + Radio’s masterful sound design and deliciously voyeuristic detail, The Secrets Hotline invites anonymous callers from across the globe to share the stuff they’d normally keep hidden in their everyday lives. Episodes offer a marvellous window into the weirdness of the world we live in."

Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Dec 5, 2020

"I’ve spent a week listening to strangers airing their cupboard skeletons and I feel all the better for it. It’s mostly just a series of messages left by American and British listeners on The Secrets Hotline’s answerphone. Some are brief, like the wife who takes a quick two minutes to say she can’t bear her husband and wishes she didn’t have kids. Others take a little longer: a gay woman gives us a detailed revenge tale that had me punching the air at the end. Everything is beautifully produced, sounds ebbing and flowing in our ears, giving us time to savour these wonderful intimacies."
