    Introducing: Zombiemum

    Introducing: Zombiemum

    Hi Your Broccoli Weekly listeners, here's a podcast we think you'll love; it's called Zombiemum. When writer and illustrator Laura Dockrill first became a mum, the experience was life changing - but not in the way she was expecting. She woke up on her first Mother’s Day in a psychiatric ward, without a clue where she was, separated from her newborn, with a diagnosis of postpartum psychosis. Since her experience, she’s been on a mission to uncover the psychological effects of bringing a small person into this world and smash the stigmas associated with them. Each week Laura will be talking to guests from a range of different backgrounds and disciplines all with their own unique experience for some heart-breaking, heart warming, gut wrenching, generous, reassuring real talk. #Zombiemum

Conversation that are needed and delivered

Good Podcast that give a voice to the forgotten or unheard. With all the noise in the world it great to have a well produced podcast to listen to namely jaja muhamed windrush series that touched me as a child of African migrants propping up the NHS and putting their lives at risk. Hopefully we learn and its not my children speaking on a podcast like thus on a similar issue.

Excellent

A thoughtful and insightful podcast, shedding light on current topics that may not have received the coverage they deserve in mainstream media.

I particularly enjoyed the Windrush Generation episodes, which rung true with my family. They had the right tone set by the presenter, Jaja, and the guests stories highlighted my ignorance but also motivated me to want to know and do more! Well done.

Genuinely good for our health!

This is wonderfully different to Britain’s increasingly disappointing mainstream news media. An uplifting weekly dose of informed, respectful and friendly discussion without a rightwing bias. Youthful, insightful, and very healthy!
