Episode 16: Jessie Cave
Play • 1 hr 42 min

This week I'm talking to Jessie Cave, writer, performer, cartoonist and soon-to-be author. She's an ex-national tennis player, she's played Lavender Brown in Harry Potter, and she refuses to be pigeon-holed. She shares with me the terrible, recent impact of losing her brother. She also shares the amazing story of getting pregnant after a one-night stand with comedian Alfie Brown. At the time of recording she was just about to have her third child with him - they now have baby Abraham (Bam for short), 4 year old Margot and 6 year old Donnie.

195: VV Brown on music, motherhood, and racism
She's a musician, an artist, an author, and a mother - it's the amazing VV Brown!  She tells us about her singing career, including what it's like to hang out with Amy Winehouse, perform with Grace Jones, and turn down P Diddy. We also discuss how it feels London and move to the countryside as a black woman. VV shares her experience of post-natal depression, and offers some advice for mums who feel like they've lost their hustle.  There's some chat about VV's fantastic new children's book, Lily and the Magic Comb. We talk about what it's like to be told your book is too niche because it features a black lead character.  And finally, we end with a fabulous Scummy Mummy Confession, involving a wardrobe fail at Camp Bestival.  VV's new project is out this Mother's Day, 14 March. Lily and the Magic Comb, written by VV and illustrated by Kate Hazell, is available now from wokekidzshop.co.uk, plus the usual online bookstores.  You can follow VV on Twitter @vvbrown, Instagram @vvbrownofficial, and catch up with her doings at vvbrown.com.  SAFETY NOTICE: This podcast was recorded last year, before lockdown, with social distancing in accordance with the rules, no worries lads.  **WE HAVE A SHOP!** Visit scummymummiesshop.com for our ace t-shirts, mugs, washbags, sweatshirts and more!

Philippa Perry on getting hold of the "steering wheel of life"
How's 2021 for you so far?! I know, right? Well, who better to grab us by the scruff of the neck at just the point our meagre enthusiasm is starting to wear off than Philippa Perry? Philippa has been a psychotherapist for 20 years. She’s also an agony aunt, presenter and author of the bestseller, The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and your children will be glad you did) - a clever, funny - and SANE - guide that acknowledges ‘they f*ck you up, your mum and dad’, and then helps you try not to do the same. Philippa is completely fascinating as she talks about “getting hold of the steering wheel of life”, why plummeting oestrogen levels made her “homicidal not suicidal”, why women should stop playing “mine’s smaller than yours” and her own battle to silence her inner critic. And if you want to know how to make a sweary cushion you’ve come to the right place. The Shift (on life after 40) with Sam Baker is created and hosted by Sam Baker and edited by Emily Sandford. I'd love to hear what you think - please rate and review or let me know on twitter @sambaker or instagram @theothersambaker. You can buy all the books mentioned in this podcast at Bookshop.org, including the book that accompanies this podcast, The Shift: how I lost and found myself after 40 - and you can too and The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read and Couch Fiction.   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

082 The Personal & Professional Costs of the Menopause - Chris Oglesby & Dr Louise Newson
Chris Oglesby is the chief executive of Bruntwood, which remains a family-owned and run company founded on a belief that its success comes from the success of its colleagues, customers and the communities in which it operates. He works tirelessly helping cities such as Manchester to thrive in many ways including by improving health inequalities, funding research and by supporting cultural and community initiatives. Chris talks to Dr Newson about how his wife, Jane, really struggled during her perimenopause and menopause and how difficult it was for him to watch her experience various symptoms. He also speaks openly about his sister, who also found it difficult to receive adequate help and treatment for her menopause. Dr Newson and Chris explore ways in which menopause in the workplace can be addressed to improve organisations and also about how poor menopause care is a global health problem which urgently needs to be addressed. Chris Oglesby's Three Take Home Tips for employers: * Start with your own awareness, do your research and learn more about how the menopause may affect your staff. * Then you can roll out a programme of awareness within your business to benefit all colleagues, both male and female. * Look at pathways into providing your female staff with high quality treatment and menopause advice.
