Alan Dein returns with his inviting series in which he locks himself
away in a makeshift studio for days on end to talk to people around the
world who responded to his Facebook page that said simply, “Talk to me”.
The stories he hears may be varied but there seems to be an
underlying theme of sadness — loneliness, alienation, family
estrangements and unhappy relationships. But that sadness is also cut by
wonderment at the full incalculability of life, especially in the case
of Jennifer from Nova Scotia whose friend from Ireland is marrying her
ex-husband after meeting him on Facebook.

He also catches up with Jennifer in Nova Scotia, who featured in the last series and whose ex-husband is about to be released from jail and marry her best friend.
