“It’s fantastic to have a radio show for women BY women. Not that Radio Gorgeous is worthy or box-ticking. It’s funny, frantic, smart; often profound and just occasionally filthy.” Liz Hoggard – Journalist It was such fun” Lynn Barber – Celebrity Journalist

“Radio Gorgeous is a brilliant, necessary and exciting enterprise which puts women’s work, ideas, voices, creativity and wit front and centre. Radio Gorgeous is storming a media landscape in which women are under-represented as speakers, experts, stars and executives, producing brilliantly researched content which never fails to inspire and excite. From politics to the arts, the everyday to the global, Radio Gorgeous is quicker, smarter and sharper than anything else out there right now.” Bidisha Critic, Writer & Broadcaster

“Josephine is such a positive person! She is really willing you on to express yourself. She has really brilliant questions and is obviously really interested! ” Gillian McCallum CEO of Drawing Down The Moon

“Once you listen, you’ll be addicted and won’t be able to wait for your weekly fix. Hearing talented women talking in depth about their involvement in books, art, music, theatre as well as all manner of health and lifestyle issues is both fascinating and up-lifting. Affirmative, real and full of humour, listening to radio Gorgeous really will make you feel gorgeous.” Jo Rees, Author

This week I was interviewed on Radio Gorgeous, the UK’s longest running women led podcast. My early career was as a radio and TV reporter and out of all the interviews I’ve done, this one was my favourite (except I was the one answering the questions, instead of asking them). Please give Josephine Pembroke a TV Show! She is clever, funny, naughty and kind. It made for an insightful interview as we talked about orgasm, self-discovery, movement as medicine and more.” Betsy Blankenbaker Autobiography of an Orgasm

“Radio Gorgeous does the best author interviews on the planet!” Gina Rozner, West London

“Being Interviewed by Radio Gorgeous is a fabulous experience…I loved every minute. Not only because the gorgeous Josephine herself has actually read the book so the conversation just flows. But what a great idea it is to preserve women’s voices in the 21st century. This is what we thought in 2012 and this is how we said it. What will my grandchildren think?” Anne Sebba – Author

“Radio Gorgeous is such a clever idea and done so well. -Josephine is a dream interviewer” Lindsey Bareham, Food Writer and Cook

    MAN WEEK: Donna Freed with Geoff Deane, author of From Mohair Suits to Kinky Boots

    MAN WEEK: Donna Freed with Geoff Deane, author of From Mohair Suits to Kinky Boots

    Geoff Deane is most recently known as the screenwriter of Kinky Boots, but his career swerves have encompassed founding the punk band Leyton Buzzards and salsa band Modern Romance. He has been a writer and producer for television, a journalist, restaurant critic and songwriter but it is his observations and appreciation for the joyful cast of characters he has met along the way that colours From Mohair Suits to Kinky Boots: How Music, Clothes and Going Out Shaped My Life and Upset My Mother. 

    A master raconteur, Geoff's tales of his Hackney origins to Hollywood hijinks are littered with Cockney rhyming slang, Yiddish and Polari.

    Megan Ramos, co-author of the best-selling Life in the Fasting Lane (with Dr Jason Fung), has now written a guide to intermittent fasting specifically for women, with step-by-step advice for preventing and reversing metabolic disease.

    As a teenager, Megan was diagnosed with both non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome and developed type 2 diabetes in her mid-twenties. While a researcher in a clinic, she met Dr Jason Fung and his ideas on intermittent fasting. 

    She reversed her diabetes within 6 months and has now helped over 20,000 people to improve their health through intermittent fasting.

    Donna Freed with Marisa Haetzman, one half of Ambrose Parry

    Donna Freed with Marisa Haetzman, one half of Ambrose Parry

    Donna Freed meets Marisa Haetsman, one half of the husband-wife writing partnership, Ambrose Parry, authors of a series of medical murder mysteries set in Victorian Edinburgh. Marisa sets the scene for the latest, Voices of the Dead, which takes place in 1853 when Edinburgh while still sceptical of medical men in the wake of the Burke and Hare murders is experiencing a resurgence in interest in mesmerism and chloroform has just been as an early anaesthetic for use in childbirth. 

    Former Consultant Anaesthetist, Marisa made a mid-life decision to study the history of medicine. She discovered tales of medical hijinks so wild that her husband, best-selling crime writer Chris Brookmyre, suggested that they join forces and exploit the rich possibilities of invention and murder in the Victorian Age.

    Before they were interrupted by a gorgeous, if unruly dog, Donna Freed and Christina Ford were marvelling at some of the twists and turns in Christina's personal life as related in memoir, In Search of Mr Darcy.

    In this segment, Christina alludes to the genuinely shocking and ingenious end to the relationship that brought her to London from her native Toronto and explains why she decided to stay in London and start her blog A-Broad in London

Great Podcasts

Radio Gorgeous has the best interviews, with the most interesting women, doing the most courageous things – right now. Give it a go

Professor Baum interview

This interview with Professor Baum has honestly changed my life. I am 45. My mother developed oestrogen sensitive breast cancer aged 44 and had it recurrently, developing a different oestrogen sensitive breast cancer aged 54 which killed her. I have lived in fear of suffering the same. I am considered moderate risk and take tamoxifen as a preventative. I’m now experiencing peri-menopause and are nervous about my options. This interview has calmed me, reassured me and opened up the reality that I can choose to take HRT should I need to. I can’t thank you enough.
