The Stage Podcast: Edinburgh Festival Fringe Episode 2 with Tim Bano and Lyn Gardner

Find out what the critics thought of four Edinburgh plays focussing on the NHS, why Hesmondhalgh left Coronation Street to return to theatre, plus lots of horror stories from the festival – most involving bodily fluids.
