Listen: The Housemate by Sarah Bailey

Three housemates. One dead, one missing and one accused of murder. The perfect crime? Or the perfect set up?

Olive Groves is a Melbourne-based journalist who has been covering a very intriguing crime for most of her life. The crime was covered up, and the missing person has remained at large, until now.

They have been discovered, dead, on a rural property, and Olive is once again asked to cover the story. This time, she has a fellow investigative storyteller, Cooper Ng, to assist her. What they uncover about the crime will shock readers.

Watch: Love Life, Season Two, STAN

There is nothing quite as soothing and consoling as the knowledge that you are not alone in your pursuit of love and happiness.

What’s so completely comforting about Stan’s, Love Life is that throughout ten, hour long episodes, we get to dive deep into the life of a single individual who is going through the messy disappointments, the unexpected highs, the troubling loneliness and isolation and the crippling late night existential panic-attacks that accompany us while we’re trying to find the ultimate ‘the one’. 

All of us are looking for love, and this show has returned once again with the same sincerity, openness and charisma of its first season. This time, we follow Marcus Watkins, a young newly-divorced book editor who is not quite sure who he wants to be nor who he wants to share his life with.

Another glorious love letter to New York City, too. 

Watch it on Stan.
