Trouble in Paradise
Sun, sea and €1 drinks lure thousands of backpackers to Andrew’s hostel in a typical year. But 2020 was not a typical year.Confronting a doomed Summer season and 45 empty bedrooms, Andrew’s family turned their accommodation over to a diverse group of refugees, drug addicts, career criminals and victims of domestic abuse - converting their hostel, in the Cote d’Azur, in to a homeless shelter during Lockdown.As Andrew recounts to Olly, the experience opened his eyes to the realities of life on the streets - the mental health problems, alcoholism, and traumatic violence so often lurking in the background - but also gave him hope that it’s possible to re-make your life, even in the most dire of circumstances.  (Names have been changed.) ----------------------------- Meanwhile, in the Zeitgeist, Ollie Peart heads out into the bracing January fog for… a barbecue, of course! Can he ‘upskill’ his outdoor cooking abilities to create a Winter feast? Armed with little more than a plank of plywood and a side of salmon, he attempts to justify his hipster beard by mastering an authentic asado wood-flamed pit - and puts the trend for ‘sweet pizza’ to the test. The Zeitgeist is sponsored by below-the-waist grooming experts Manscaped.  For 20% off and free shipping use the code MANN at Manscaped.com. ----------------------------- Elsewhere, in the Foxhole, Alix Fox gets deep in the weeds of aphrodisiac seeds, and assists a lady listener who coughs each time she has sex. Could this after-sex reflex be a reaction to her partner’s semen, an allergy to linens, or even a vasovagal attack? Alix investigates, with the assistance of breathing expert Jane Tarrant.If you have a question of sex for Alix to answer, visit modernmann.co.uk and fill out our Feedback form. ----------------------------- Finally, music this month comes from Dutch-born, London-based singer-songwriter Eyelar - and her current single, ‘Doin’ It Again’.

Purveyors of, in the words of one ComCom fan, “Dubstep Python”, they reveal all about the first edit of the show where no one laughed, choosing authenticity over perfection, why none of the context matters, and how they managed to make a TV show without compromising on anything. 25 minutes of extra content available exclusively to members of the Insiders Club includes the boys on the polarising ability of their work, which sketch grabs new fans most successfully, their three-take system for improvising on camera, and how much pud is a little bit of pud… Go to www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders for this and much more, including the exclusive Insiders Q&A with James Acaster.

Queerness, Christianity, Autism and Vaginismus with Andy Thornton
Welcome to the first Doing It episode of 2021! In this episode, Hannah is joined by Andy Thornton (they/he), who is a bigender illustrator, sex educator for the School of Sexuality Education, and Stonewall's Person of Faith role model. Andy discusses their experience being queer and non-binary as well as what being bigender means to him and how the way they identify relates to being a Christian. He and Hannah talk about the difference between tolerating and affirming Christian communities, social constructs of gender, and go on a tangent about language and sexual orientation. Finally, Hannah and Andy also discuss autism and vaginismus. It's a jam-packed episode this week! MORE ABOUT ANDY THORNTON I'm a Stonewall LGBTQ+ Person of Faith Role Model so I make noise about how God loves queers, and I mentor young people who are struggling with their Christian and queer identities and help them to embrace and love themselves! I'm also technically an author and illustrator as I published a trans children's book called Rebekah's Secret Grandpa. I've just graduated in Sociology at Bath after doing an art foundation at Oxford Brookes, and now I'm a freelance digital marketer and illustrator, working mainly with SSE (+ facilitating in schools) and Rixxo. My dissertation researched experiences of trans and bi Christians who are excluded from both queer and Christian spaces, with hour long interviews with 17 students who identified with one or both of those identities. I recently talked about my findings, and my experience as a queer Christian Quaker, on the podcast Blessed Are The Binary Breakers (which was split out into two episodes: 1 & 2), and about being a trans ally on the podcast Nobody Panic. - Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/humansatsuma/ - Art Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lesgetbetter/ - Portfolio: http://andythornton.work/ - School of Sexuality Education Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/school_sexed/ 📝CHECK OUT THE SHOW NOTES 📝 https://doingitpodcast.co.uk ✨CONNECT WITH US ✨ https://www.instagram.com/doingitpodcast https://twitter.com/doingitpodcast 👀WANT EARLY & AD-FREE ACCESS TO EPISODES?👀 https://www.patreon.com/hannahwitton ✏️SIGN UP TO OUR NEWSLETTER✏️ http://bit.ly/HannahWittonsNewsletter
