“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

“Pirate Radio for Vogue Readers” Journalist and writer Zoe Williams

“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

“Radio Gorgeous has the best interviews, with the most interesting women, doing the most courageous things – right now. You can’t afford not to listen.” Rachel Kelly Writer and Journalist

‘Radio Gorgeous is absolutely fantastic!” – Jacqueline Rogers CEO The Athena Network

    Donna Freed with Wanda Whiteley, author of The Goldhanger Dog

    Donna Freed with Wanda Whiteley, author of The Goldhanger Dog

    As a commissioning editor at Harper Collins, Wanda Whiteley was in the business of saying no to the majority of authors who came her way. She founded manuscriptdoctor.co.uk so she could put her expertise to work for new authors. Wanda then decided it would only be fair to put herself in their shoes and the result is her debut historical novel, The Goldhanger Dog. The young protagonist, fifteen-year-old Dela, has an unusual relationship to animals which has caused her East Anglian neighbours to brand her as a witch. She finds shelter in the court of Princess Mary in the dangerous times of uncertain succession while the boy-king Edward lay on his deathbed. An immersive read with some delicious magical elements appropriate for young adults and beyond.

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.

Radio Lover number 1 ,
