    It's MOVEMBER!
    This week on Time To Talk, I speak to psychotherapist James Hawes. We have a powerful discussion about anger, love, and the power of men’s groups. As a therapist, for James, it’s usually men who walk through his door.
    There, they have a myriad of discussions about sexuality, emotional regulation and learning how to be men of the best possible kind.
    His book, The Secret Lives Of Men: Ten Keys To Unlocking The Secret is an amazing guide for men and those who love them as a way of discerning the issues that men face.

    Welcome to Time To Talk. 

    Passing. Fetishisation. Colourism. Mixed race identity.
    These are the topics I have the pleasure of speaking to my friend Natalie Morris about this week on the show. Her book, Mixed/Other: Explorations of Multiraciality In Modern Britain. 

    The book comes at an essential time, especially in Black History Month where it can bring up very strong feelings of exclusion for mixed race black people when entering the conversation.

    Interestingly enough, out in cinemas this week is Passing - the new film written and directed by Rebecca Hall, starring Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson about African-Americans who had skin color light enough to be perceived as "white" - which is known as ‘Passing’. Gemma spoke to Rebecca Hall – who’s own Grandfather ‘passed’ as white - about the movie which is out in cinemas on October 27th and will be on Netflix on November 10th - and is based on the 1929 novel by Nella Larsen.

    We do have an in depth conversation about what it means to ‘pass’ especially today in the age of Meghan and Harry; the identities of mixed race people; fetishisation from within and without the Black community, and what books Natalie wants to share with us this week.

    Natalie and I have worked together as journalists before, and she is deputy lifestyle editor at the Metro covering race, mental health, women in sport and women in the work place. She has a column called Mixed Up on Metro.co.uk. She hails from Manchester, and is doing the work to make the newsroom a much more inclusive place.

    This week, I'm speaking to New York Times Bestselling author, Mateo Askaripour. We talk all things writing, being Black in a corporate setting, and optimism.
    His book, Black Buck, is an earnest work of satire, hilarious, and razor-sharp skewering of office culture; a propulsive, crackling debut that explores ambition and race, and makes way for a necessary new vision of the American dream.
