    This week I'm speaking with writer, journalist and podcaster Reni Eddo-Lodge. Growing up in East and North London, she became the first black British woman to be #1 in the British Book Charts for her book, 'Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race', and she's written for The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph and the New York Times to name but a few. To be honest I'm a bit nervous because, look, she's really clever!

Very funny

Loved the episode with Reni, so funny remembering about the Vodka being un-drinkable in cheapskates, you forgot to mention how often a stray cigarette would end up on your arm.... 😂

Skin

That was a great interview. Skin just gave out such positive energy. She rocks! And being a Brixton girl myself I could visualise the places she was referencing; the alley way between M&S and Superdrug; still use it now to visit a local bar pre Academy nights 😋 Excellent stuff Clara.
