Slow to React

Hosted by  • 

Quick. What's 789 times 267? Do the math in your head. This week we have stories where people's reactions move even slower than yours are now. Including the story of a wedding 17 years in the making and what it's like when you have a terminal illness that's supposed to kill you in a year or two, and it decides to take its time. (Note: This program includes a story not suitable for children.)
