191: Thanyia Moore on bullying, comedy, and Cabbage Patch Dolls
Our guest for this episode is the hilarious comedian, actor, and writer, Thanyia Moore!  We reminisce about the bad old days, when we were all on the open mic comedy circuit together. There's some chat about how different audiences can be, and the issues around race and gender that still exist in comedy today.  Thanyia shares her experience of being a school bully, and tells us what happened when she apologised to the people she was mean to in adulthood. We discuss what causes bullying, what she wishes the adults around her had done differently, and why she thinks it's time for a shift in focus in the way we deal with bullies.  And finally, we nearly come to blows over the subject of Cabbage Patch Dolls, before Thanyia entertains us with some brilliant Scummy Auntie Confessions.  For more from Moore, including gig dates, go to thanyiamoore.co.uk. Her episode of Mock the Week is now on iPlayer.  SAFETY NOTICE: This podcast was recorded with social distancing before the new lockdown rules were announced, no worries lads.  **SEE US LIVE!** We are bringing our Christmas show to Milton Keynes, Cirencester, and Clapham this December.

EP.142 - BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH
Adam talks with British poet, writer and musician Benjamin Zephaniah. PLEASE BE AWARE: During the first 10 minutes of our conversation Benjamin told me about some relatives suffering with the effects of COVID and included some details that may be upsetting to hear for people who have lost loved ones to the disease. So if you're worried, skip past those first ten minutes and you should be OK. It's not all pandemic chat though - mainly Benjamin describes fascinatingly how managed to make the transition from angry young criminal to internationally celebrated writer. Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Anneka Myson for additional editing.  Podcast artwork by Helen Green https://helengreenillustration.com/ RELATED LINKS SAMARITANS NORWICH CHOOSE LOVE AUCTION CHOOSE LOVE - HELP REFUGEES ON LINE STORE BENJAMIN LINKS BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH'S WEBSITE BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH - DIS POLICEMAN (KEEPS ON KICKING ME TO DEATH) (1982, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH (WITH THE WAILERS) - FREE SOUTH AFRICA (TUFF GONG) (1982, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH ON WINDRUSH, ANARCHISM AND HIS TIME IN NORTH KOREA (C4 NEWS, 2018, YOUTUBE) ON MODERN RACISM (2011, BBC NEWSNIGHT, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH RECITES HIS POEM MONEY (1991, YOUTBE) WEST MIDLANDS POLICE PAY COMPENSATION FOR KILLING OF MIKEY POWELL (2003) (2018, BIRMINGHAM LIVE WEBSITE) ADAM AND JOE LINKS ADAM AND JOE - FRIENDS LIKE THESE, NME (2020, YOUTUBE) THE ADAM AND JOE SHOW ON WOW PRESENTS PLUS (SIGN UP TO STREAM ALL 4 SERIES)  ADAM BUXTON WEBSITE ADAM BUXTON'S RAMBLE BOOK (HARDBACK) (WATERSTONES) ADAM BUXTON'S RAMBLE BOOK (AUDIOBOOK) (2020, AUDIBLE)   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
