    Mother's Day Special - Interviewing Each Other

    Mother's Day Special - Interviewing Each Other

    What's it like being mothered by Andi? What's it like having Miquita as a daughter?
    Get ready for a very special, very personal episode ahead of Mother's Day, where Andi and Miquita sit down, mother to daughter, for a very personal lunch.
    On the menu is one of Miquita's favourite childhood dishes. Also on the menu is plenty of conversation about their early life in West London, the extended family that helped raise Miquita, finding a connection with Miquita's 'other' family, tales of boyfriends, good and bad, the pleasure and pride they have working with each other, and tales of spectacular fallouts. There is also some lovely insight into the woman Andi was before she was Miquita's mother.
    Mostly though, the episode is about pride, respect, and most of all love. With plenty of laughter along the way.

They’re both a vibe

Whilst I cook or drive…I absolutely love tuning in and hearing their voices and the stories of interesting people I’ve admired. So engaging are Andi and Miquita and their guests that the emotion of the interview overcomes me. Stand out episodes were Gok Wan and Misan Harriman. I did not know I could cry over a podcast and be so dramatically inspired.

Could be 5 star

… could be great but they keep interrupting their guests and don’t let them start a story.

Boring

Zero talent
