    My guest today is the wonderful Priyanka Chopra Jonas, multi-award-winning actor and producer. A former Miss World, she made her movie debut in 2002 and has appeared in more than sixty films produced in India and the United States. For all the work in association with UNICEF, she was awarded the prestigious Danny Kaye Humanitarian Award in 2019. In February 2021, Priyanka published her first book, a memoir called Unfinished which she wrote during the 2020 lockdown and we discuss the book in this episode: her reflections, her multi-hyphenate life, stories about her family and career, how she met her husband, how her relationship with social media has changed, and how she became the person she is today. I really enjoyed chatting to her and if you liked this episode, please do consider leaving a review somewhere, very much appreciated!

    #311 Georgina Lawton: On Her Book 'Raceless'

    #311 Georgina Lawton: On Her Book 'Raceless'

    Georgina Lawton is a twenty-something journalist, weekly Guardian columnist, travel writer and host of Audible's DNA podcast, The Secrets In Us — a series that looks into 'do-it-yourself' DNA testing kits and Georgina follows the stories of those learning to live with the results. 
     
    Georgina’s debut book Raceless is out now, a stunning family memoir exploring race, identity and the devastating effect of long-held secrets within a happy family. It is a moving examination of how racial identity is constructed—through the author’s own journey grappling with secrets and stereotypes, having been raised by white parents with no explanation as to why she looked black. The memoir investigates the question: what constitutes our sense of self? In this beautifully written memoir she grapples with difficult questions about love, shame, grief, and prejudice, and reveals the nuanced and emotional journey of forming one’s identity. Hope you enjoy this conversation.
