101: Amrou Al-Kadhi | Part 2
Play • 33 min

This is a beautiful chat with a trailblazer who sprinkles laughter, honesty and a whole ton of glitter wherever they go. The glorious Amrou Al-Kadhi is a non-binary drag queen who is paving the way for so many people to see that it’s more than possible to be queer, Muslim and fabulous. We find out what was it like being queer at Eton (the British boarding school that educated Boris Johnson), if you can really find intimacy at a chem-sex party, and Amrou tells us about a life changing experience at Edinburgh Festival. They will warm your heart and if you like what you hear go get their fascinating memoir ‘Life as a Unicorn’. Enjoy!

Life as a Unicorn: A Journey from Shame to Pride and Everything in Between- Amrou Al-Kadhi:

Hoovering - Episode 154: Deborah Frances-White RETURNS
Welcome to HOOVERING, the podcast about eating. Host, Jessica Fostekew (Guilty Feminist, Motherland) has a frank conversation with an interesting person about gobbling; guzzling; nibbling; scoffing; devouring and wolfing all up… or if you will, hoovering. The Hoovering podcast turns 3! Almost exactly today. Now - there’s obviously the big official third birthday dinner party episode just been recorded too, but initially that’s just for some patrons - but I didn’t want to leave the landmark unflagged -so what better way to celebrate in these strangely distant times to re-hoover, hoover again, with my first EVER guest from three years ago - the queen of feminism, the always majestic Deborah Frances-White.  Everything written below in CAPITALS is a link to the relevant webpage.  Honourable Mentions/ Links Deborah’s an advocate for the amazing REFUGEE COMMUNITY KITCHEN who are desperately seeking volunteers to help both in the UK and Calais.  She’s on the socials HERE and if you’re the last person left who hasn’t listened to it, may I introduce you right here, right now to THE GUILTY FEMINIST - Deborah’s frankly world dominating podcast.  I’m on this great site called PATREON where I swap your money for ace podcast related stuff like totally exclusive content and guest recipes. It’ll help me keep the podcast not just alive, but also thriving. Thanks so so so much if you’ve become a patron recently and/ or stuck with me since the beginning of this.  Also - if you’d wanted to donate something as a one-off you can DO THAT HERE on the Acast Supporter page thing.  I got my big beautiful curly cucumber from ODDBOX and if you want one? And you want a massive £10 off your first box so it makes it just a few quid? Then USE THIS LINK MATE MY TOUR IS RESCHEDULED - COME! Well - there’s hope for some of the dates from March or April perhaps? Things we mentioned that you might be interested in from this podcast include… Weird and wonderful (and sometimes awful) popcorn from JOE & SEPHS We piped on about food and drink takeaway places JOE AND THE JUICE, COSTA COFFEE and swankier eateries Lewisham’s SPARROW and north London’s DISHOOM.  Human food MARMITE and cat crack DREAMIES  Bonfire of country and bullshit Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/hoovering.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Raven Leilani - You're Booked
This week we are incredibly excited to welcome the author of one of our, and Barack Obama's, favourite books. Raven Leilani's Luster has, quite rightly, taken the literary world by storm. As well as making Obama's 2020 book list, it's won the Kirkus Prize and been a New York Times bestseller. Sexy, funny and incredibly prescient, it is a book for our times and Raven is a writer of extreme skill and enormous promise. We talked to Raven about unlikeable characters, fantasy movie adaptations, fan fiction and sexy vampires.
