    The doom cycle is all too much for this week’s Planet Normal stowaway, Laura Dodsworth.

    Elsewhere on the podcast, our co-pilots celebrate a victory for common sense after Allison spearheaded a successful takedown of so-called “e-medicine”, Liam proposes a solution to Britain’s doctor shortage and one lucky listener wins a coveted Planet Normal mug.
