    Introducing: If I Can Do It, with Mel B

    To mark the New Year, we wanted to give you a taster of our newest podcast. It’s called If I Can Do It - and if you liked Mad World, we think you’ll like this too.
    In each episode, Bryony talks to someone whose life-story can put a bit of spring in your step. From an Oscar-winning filmmaker to a feminist icon-in-the-making - these are people who have overcome big obstacles on the road to success, and who have some powerful advice to share with the rest of us.
    Up first is Mel B.
    In this intimate conversation, she talks Bryony through the relationship which swallowed the past decade of her life, how she finally escaped it, and what we can all do to look after ourselves in times of trouble.
