Hooked on Freddie

8:59 AM GMT+1 on September 24, 2023

    Hooked on Freddie - A bewildering and unpredictable story about a man’s friendship with a wild bottlenose dolphin off the coast of the North of England, and how that friendship led to serious accusations of abuse by another local. These accusations led to national news and countless tabloid headlines. 

    The story, presented by journalist Becky Milligan (who has swam with Freddie) tries to get to the bottom of what really happened, delving into the issue of animal rights and cruelty, and the court of public opinion. The first four episodes are available to listen to now, with early access to the fifth and sixth episode for subscribers to Wondery+.
