    S9 Ep 17: JoJo

    S9 Ep 17: JoJo

    She was that voice we all knew, sung the songs that were always on the radio, her first support tour was for Usher and all at the age of 13. This week we talk to Boston born JoJo and hear her tough, frustrating and honest story about her dealings with the music industry that ended up with her not being able to be heard for years.
    Fast forward to 2020, she's won a Grammy, her current record was top of the R&B charts in the US and she's currently in lockdown with her mum. JoJo waxes lyrical about @dishoom, her penchant for drinking lemon mescal margaritas, tells mum about being in a ‘situationship’ and is basically a doll who we wished we could have had round for a curry in Clapham.
    Listen to her story, her struggle and her survival and fist pump at the end. Xx

    S9 Ep 16: Ellie Goulding

    After a dramatic start where a door-to-door salesman (not following social-distance guidelines!) threatened to smash through Lennie’s window, we welcomed our most-requested guest Ellie Goulding to Table Manners this week.
    Ellie shares her bio-hack veggie lockdown eating must-haves, how to prep for lockdown grocery store queues and her fears of the essential-item trolley police!
    We hear the origins of her romance with husband Caspar, her multiple wedding day outfits that saw the singer end up in Vogue for the first time, and missing out on trying her wedding cake or any of the food.
    Ellie, you've always been so generous and lovely to me in the old industry and it was a pleasure to chat to you (even with your shit wifi girl). We know our listeners will love you like we do xx

    S9 Ep 15: Joe Wicks

    In between his daily PE lessons, we managed to lock down the king of quarantine, Joe Wicks AKA The Body Coach to join us on Table Manners and what a joy it was! Straight out of A&E and onto the podcast, Joe chatted to us about his lockdown routine, his newly appointed teaching assistant (his wife!), his gin collection, nothing beating a burger and chips, his brand new book ‘Wean In 15’ & we discuss our shared mutual respect for the Moana soundtrack. And I reinvent the pronunciation of Quarantine as I've obviously been having too many Quarantinis !!!! To top it all off, he even serenaded us with his guitar! This is a good one, enjoy! X

    S9 Ep 14: Florence Pugh

    Lockdown you are spoiling us!!
    We managed to zoom in to the delightful British actress, Oscar nominated star of Little Women, Florence Pugh's Los Angeles garden studio for a chat.
    We talk about her sourdough starter 'Maggie', family and how her ma made the best dressed mum's list at the Oscars.
    We bond over Tiramisu and hear what's she growing in her veg patch, being the 'Queen of the cheeseboard’, lockdown Los Angeles and her new puppy finding a dildo in the backyard.
    I've been obsessed with her since I saw Little Drummer Girl (a good quarantine series btw) and she totally indulged my enthusiasm like a massive pro. What a star, god love her! Have a listen xxx

    S9 Ep 13: John Legend

    Zooming straight in from LA, this week John bloody Legend joins us on Table Manners. The EGOT winner (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar & Tony award winner...mum didn't know what that meant either) sat down to chat to us whilst eating his wife’s home cooked chicken soup and dumplings. John talks about being in charge of breakfast in the Legend/Teigen household, growing up in Ohio, stockpiling A1 sauce, being a pro chair dancer and we get to the bottom of the ‘eating chicken wings before a show’ situation! What a Legend...enjoy!

    S9 Ep 12: Josh Groban

    This week we had our first guest zoom in from across the pond; American singer, songwriter, actor and record producer Josh Groban joins us on the podcast from sunny Los Angeles.
    Josh talks us through his musical journey, from starting in musical theatre, duetting with Celine Dion when he was only 16 to making a 4 year album with the master, Rick Rubin. Quarantine has awoken a new found passion for cooking; he makes a ‘mean’ beans on toast & has realised he enjoys singing in the shower, even with a puffer on. We talk about where to get the best sushi in LA, drinking mezcal & what he feeds his 15 yr old dog, Sweeney. Enjoy!

Stop with the interruptions

Very nearly have had to abandon ship with so many episodes where the hosts keep interrupting their guest! Particularly bad on the ep with Nigella and David Schwimmer. One of the cardinal rules in broadcasting, of any form, is to let your guests speak and finish their sentences. So frustrating!

Love It

OK so if there was a 4.5 I would have chose that but there isn’t. Great podcast, makes me laugh out loud & is easy to follow along with. It’s actually my first podcast & in 1 week have listed to around 40 episodes.

My only criticism would be sometimes it’s frustrating when you talk over your guests when they are in the middle of a story, I feel you interrupt quite a lot.

Also I couldn’t listen to 2 of the episodes as when guests make a lot of noise with their mouth out with talking e.g. smacking or if they have a dry mouth and need a drink as it’s like their lips are sticking together or that they have too much liquid in their mouth it turns my stomach but I understand you can’t really do much about that.

Lost it’s magic

I used to love this podcast, and they used to have good guests with a genuine interest in food, now it seems that it’s just random guests who are trying to promote something at best, at worst it feels like it shares a negative attitude towards food and body image, with some guests bragging about their restrictive diets and Jessie always going on about how she needs to eat less. Real shame.
