Alabama's Abortion Ban; & The Trouble with Uber's New 'Silence' Mode

Grumpy Cat has died and we came last (again) in Eurovision. This week Dolly's down a Doris Day content-hole and Pandora's bewitched by the Instagram account@90sanxiety. We discuss Alabama's new abortion ban - the most restrictive in the States - voted in by 25 white men and reflect on the ongoing battle for agency in Northern Ireland, which sees 28 women travel to the UK every single day, for an abortion. Donate here to Abortion Support Network - https://donate.asn.org.uk/gb-en/donate And we debate Uber's new 'silence mode' - whereby you will be able to silence your driver. A practical solution for when you need a bit of quiet; or a worrying indicator of our inability to entertain ad hoc conversation?

Alabama's Abortion Ban; & The Trouble with Uber's New 'Silence' Mode

The concept of ‘workism’ & Bryony Gordon on mental health in teen girls

Pandora’s listened to a podcast on ‘workism’ - the idea that work is now the cornerstone of your identity - and it’s changed her life; meanwhile, Dolly’s tits deep in Doris Day nostalgia. We talk Danny Baker’s racist tweet, why maternity clothes should be modelled by pregnant models, the Philippines’ proposed ban on gossip. How many mins do you gossip each day? A new study tells us the answer. And we host journalist, author and mental health campaigner Bryony Gordon to discuss her new book You Got This and why we need to focus on the mental health of and myths fed to teenage girls.

The concept of ‘workism’ & Bryony Gordon on mental health in teen girls

An Author Special with Rosie Price on the effects of trauma on the mind and body

The new royal baby, the Caster Semenya furore, the 'hogspital' and the proposed raise to the minimum wage - oh, and 86% of people have revealed that they are disappointed by the Mona Lisa. Sorry, Lis. Dolly's discovered tribute bands and Pandora's tits-deep in Refinery 29's Money Diaries series. Also today we have an author special with Rosie Price, the author of sensational debut fiction, What Red Was. A book about family, friendship, privilege and class, at the centre of the narrative is a rape. We discuss trauma, the aftershock of sexual assault and why the idea of writing as 'catharsis' is problematic. What Red Was is out on May 7th and we cannot recommend it enough.
