    WAR WITH TABAN SHORESH

    WAR WITH TABAN SHORESH

    This week Clemmie is looking at war with child genocide survivor Taban Shoresh, who founded Lotus Flower, a non-profit that supports female conflict survivors and refugees in Kurdistan, Iraq.
    With a political activist father during Saddam Hussein’s regime, Taban was imprisoned with her family aged just four, and they narrowly escaped being buried alive. 
    After a year dodging bombs and bullets, they were finally flown to the UK by Amnesty to start a new life. 
    In 2016 decided to give up her successful City of London career and establish Lotus Flower. It now supports women and girls who lost everything at the hands of ISIS, including their homes and loved ones, and who also suffered barbaric crimes such as slavery, rape and torture.

Great But Stop Huffing Clemmie

I love the pod I’ve learned so much. I spent a 3 hour car just listening to part 1 and 2 of the David Wilson on (really sorry the titles so long I forgot it) But Clemmie PLEASE stop doing the huge breathing in I’m literally listening to a pod right now and you just did it I can’t hear what they say.

Inspirational, honest and moving. My fave podcast!

I always get excited when a new episode comes out as they are all so varied and so interesting. The latest episode on county lines was absolutely amazing and Danielle is such a courageous, inspirational woman! I’ve just read Top Girl after hearing her speak and it was as gripping as Clemmie said! Keep up the good work, very episode is brilliant and thank you for keep me entertained and educated!
