48: WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH: Hoarders, Phyllis the doll hoarder, Sydney hoarder Bruce Roberts & a murder…

Hello Eavesdroppers! It’s beginning to look a lot like… a Hoarders episode! But not before a bit of ramble chat about Hamble, Boy George, Puberty Blues and a discussion on whether or not it’s acceptable to pee in the shower…

So let’s get into it! Michelle kicks off the episode with a chat about Phyllis. She’s not a general-type hoarder but a hoarder of a very specific item… Listen now to find out what Phyllis hoards, the difference between a collector and a hoarder, a teeny look at the psychology of why people hoard and whether or not Phyllis was able to let go of her possessions…

Geordie then talks about a woman who has an unusual and slightly disgusting item that she hoards and whose boyfriend doesn’t know what to do… Listen in to find out what she keeps in her bathroom drawer! Geordie then discusses the death of Sydney hoarder Bruce Roberts who was a reclusive hoarder with a twist… Find out what cleaners found went they went into Bruce’s home after he died that shook the posh Sydney suburb of Greenwich… Hint: it’s TRUE CRIME!

Remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
