“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
‘I had a marvellous time with Josephine and Donna, they made me feel so welcome and relaxed. I felt so happy as I went home. Soul happy!’ Margi Ross http://www.consciousfeminine.org/
“Love, love, love Radio Gorgeous, packed full of entertainment, culture and just great place to hang-out. Tune in!” – Deborah Garlick CEO of Henpicked.net
“Easy to chat with and fun company, anyone who is asked should get themselves in front of Josephine’s microphone at Radio Gorgeous” Melissa Cole – Beer expert
“I love hearing the chitter chatter of women’s voices while I listen to Radio Gorgeous in the morning, while my son is at nursery and I’m working. It makes me feel like I’ve got friends in the room. And the discussions are so interesting!” Lisa Devaney – Author

    Mud, Maul, Mascara, Catherine Spencer Captain of Englands Women's Rugby Team for 3 years with Josephine Pembroke

    Mud, Maul, Mascara, Catherine Spencer Captain of Englands Women's Rugby Team for 3 years with Josephine Pembroke

    Catherine Spencer has written a book about her life and most importantly when she was the captain of the England women's rugby team for three years. She scored eighteen tries for England, won six of the eight Six Nations competitions she took part in, and captained her team to three championship titles, a European cup, two Nations Cup tournament victories and the World Cup final held on home soil in 2010, which thrust women's rugby into the limelight. All of this while holding down a full time job, because the women's team, unlike the men's, did not get paid for their sport. Josephine meets Catherine and talks about her fascinating career.

    Rosanna Amaka explores the redemptive powers of love and hope in The Book of Echoes

    Rosanna Amaka spent 20 years writing her haunting and powerful debut. The Book of Echoes tells the intertwining stories of Michael in Brixton and Ngozi in Nigeria.
