SIM Ep 460 Chops 191: This is why we all need to resist
Play • 38 min

Political commentator, indefatigable activist and all-round top woman, Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu is a familiar face fighting the anti-racism fight on TV screens, social media and now, um, Tik-Tok. Her book, This Is Why I Resist, is a powerful, passionate polemic against structural racism. In this Chops, she tells Mickey why she had to write it. They also talk about the problem of performative allyship, the insidiousness of structural racism, and why the angry black woman trope is so pernicious.

197: Dr Ranj Returns
Yes, he's back - one of our favourite ever podcast guests returns for a new episode! Download now before it gets banned like the last one. This time we cover everything from Ranj's views on the Corona vaccine to the naughtiest things we've ordered from Deliveroo. We also hear how he and Helen are coping with the current mandemic. That's not a spelling mistake.  Ranj has a new book out, How to Grow Up and Feel Amazing! The No-Worries Guide for Boys. We talk about why he chose to write for lads specifically, how to talk to kids about puberty, and how we can help our sons not to become dickheads when they're older. Obviously, it all descends into filth. Ranj's book is brilliant and it's out on 18th February.  SAFETY NOTICE: This podcast was recorded remotely, which is why it sounds a bit different - sorry about that.
