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

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.

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.
Great conversations and life tips
so refreshing to find a website/radio station created for women! And its fun and refreshing - no complaining - just empowering - keep it up radio gorgeous!
