    #264 Jess Evans: Classism In Journalism

    #264 Jess Evans: Classism In Journalism

    Hello! Today's guest is journalist and consultant Jessica Evans. She has previously written for the likes of Stylist, Refinery29, Elle and all the top magazines. She is also the founder and CEO of The Freelance Sessions, which is an indie organisation that helps both aspiring writers become freelance journalists and established journalists in their career. The heart behind the one-to-one sessions is to help more northern, working class women break into the elitist world of journalism. I came across Jess when I read a piece she wrote for The Independent called "The journalism industry is abysmal for working class women like me" (link below). In this episode we discuss freelancing, classism, the issue with "Londonising" and how to get more talented individuals into the industry.

    #260 Laura Dockrill On Postpartum Psychosis

    #260 Laura Dockrill On Postpartum Psychosis

    Laura Dockrill is an award-winning author and illustrator. What Have I Done? is Laura's first book for adults. I have loved Laura's fiction and poems for years, and now this. I can already say it's one of the best memoirs I've ever read on mental health. It's about postpartum psychosis. It's moving, incredibly vivid and well written. Laura made me feel like I was standing in the corner of the hospital room with her when giving birth and then in her living room afterwards as she embarked on her road to recovery. The topic is so so important and it still feels so shrouded in secrecy, until now. I'm so glad this book exists. In this episode we discuss Laura's journey, recovery, what it's like when a raw blog article about your mental health goes viral, and why this book is a love letter to family and friends.


    If you'd like to read the article on Clemmie Telford's blog that we discuss in the interview, it is here: https://motherofalllists.com/2018/08/13/2018-08-13-postpartum-psychosis/

The only podcast I listen to

I don't have a lot of spare time, but when I do, I mostly read a book, watch YouTube or listen to Emma's podcast, which combines a lot of my interests. All of her episodes were very interesting and I really like the way she interviewes people. Keep it up, Emma!
