There is only one rule: everyone has to be who they say they are.

Under certain circumstances even the most unshakable and reliable truths can unravel, and untangling all the loose ends and rolling everything back onto the spool

is sometimes too much to bear. So maybe we should exchange our ordinary illusions for other, wilder ones....

As the neuroscientist Anil Seth once said: “Reality is just a hallucination that we can all agree on.”

DOUBLE is the first presentation to be broadcast on DARKFIELD RADIO. It is a troubling exercise in familiarity for two people sitting opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table, replicated in hundreds of rooms all across the world over 20 minutes. DOUBLE explores the Capgras delusion, a terrifying condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions
