Isabel Allende on feminism, anger and being "fatally heterosexual"
The only word I can think of to describe this week’s guest is wise. (Well there are other words - fabulous and no-bull for starters - but wise is the biggie.) Bestselling author Isabel Allende has written 25 books including her debut, the global smash hit The House of the Spirits, published when she was 39, and two memoirs, one about the death of her daughter Paula, at the age of 29. In her latest, The Soul of A Woman, the 79 year old Chilean who has been in self-imposed exile since 1975, takes a candid look at her own life, sexuality and evolution as a feminist. What, she asks - and tries to answer - do women want? From her home in Northern California, Isabel explains why she’s been a feminist since she was five and what feminism means to her (“Not what we have between our legs but what we have between our ears.” Love her!); being “fatally heterosexual”, and why she’s spent her life in training to be a “passionate old woman”. I defy you not to want to be her when you grow up by the end of this podcast! The Shift (on life after 40) with Sam Baker is created and hosted by Sam Baker and edited by Emily Sandford.

In a world of uncertainty - the one thing you can control with Marisa Peer
My guest this week says we are all born feeling enough, with an innate sense of esteem and confidence. And our job if we want to live a fulfilled life, is to get back to that place where we are enough just as we are. In this episode, I’m talking about the power of the mind with Marisa Peer. She’s been named the UKs #1 therapist as voted by Tatler Magazine and has spent over three decades treating a client list that includes international superstars, CEOs, Royalty, and Olympic athletes. Her approach is known as Rapid Transformational Therapy. It’s a mind optimisation science that completely transforms a person’s way of thinking and therefore living - in just as little as 1 or 2 sessions. I have wanted to talk with Marisa for a long time, and this is an important time to have Marisa on the podcast. Right now there is a lot of uncertainty for parents, yet Marisa has some simple and transformative ways to use our mind to change our experience. I’m excited for you to hear this episode. We talk about: - the power of what we say to ourselves - simple ways to use our mind to change our experience - the way you feel about everything is based on just two things - how to speak to yourself - the three Ps to evaluate any situation - how can we give ourselves certainty - the power of rewards - the power of ‘I am enough’ As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.

Rukmini Iyer: Author of The Roasting Tin cookbooks and food stylist
My guest today is Rukmini Iyer Rukmini is a former lawyer turned bestselling author of the Roasting Tin series which have now sold over half a million copies. Amongst her army of followers – who call themselves the TinLads. She counts Nigella Lawson as a fan as well as other famous names from Jay Rayner to Judy Murray. The concept of the Roasting Tin books is deceptively simple, Mini’s recipes lure people in with the idea of the one-pot supper. But people return time and time again because the recipes taste even better than the lack of washing up feels. A pioneer of the _and I quote: ‘put everything in a roasting tin and shove it in the oven’ school of cookery, Mini’s fourth cookbook features tasty, no-fuss dishes from across the globe. As well as writing cookbooks, Rukmini styles and writes recipes for numerous brands and publications, including Waitrose, The Guardian and Fortnum and Mason. Of her success and the reaction to her books, Mini says – ‘It’s one thing having fans who are like, "this is great for dinner", but to have fans who are saying that you’ve changed the way they eat is very humbling,’ ‘You never think that something like a cookbook could have that much effect on someone’. Thank you so much for listening. So so many delicious dishes talked about! Don’t forget to go to the website www.desertislanddishes.co for the full list of episodes plus lots of recipes and you can sign up to the newsletter.

088 Endometriosis and the Menopause - Chris Mann & Dr Louise Newson
In this podcast, Dr Louise Newson is joined by Chris Mann, a consultant gynaecologist and one of the world's leading experts in endometriosis. Chris has received extensive training in many countries in the surgical treatment of endometriosis from some of the world's leading laparoscopic surgeons. He talks to Dr Newson about this condition, which affects around 10% of women and explains how, for many women, it takes seven years for a diagnosis. Far too many women do not seek medical help and those that do are often dismissed and given inappropriate advice or treatment. Chris and Dr Newson talk about the different treatment options available for endometriosis and how women with endometriosis can be given different types of HRT during the perimenopause and menopause. He recommends that any woman who is not receiving adequate help should persevere and see another doctor. We are releasing this podcast the first week in March to coincide with Endometriosis Awareness Month. Taking place across the world, Endometriosis Month exists to help increase awareness and highlight the symptoms of this debilitating condition that affects an estimated 176 million women worldwide. Chris Mann's Three Take Home Tips: * If you suspect that you may have endometriosis and the symptoms are negatively impacting your life then please seek help. Too many women suffer in silence. * If you are not getting anywhere with your GP then you can ask for a second opinion. If you still are not getting the right help then book a private consultation with a specialist, if you can afford it. A specialist can then write to your GP and advise them on your treatment going forward. * Don't give up! For too long, too many women have been fobbed off. It isn't something to just 'put up with' and there are now more of us out there that want to help. Visit Chris Mann's website: https://www.theendometriosisclinic.com/christopher-mann/
