    Kate Lawler (Part One)

    We’re in North London this week with the fabulous presenter, podcaster and bestselling author Kate Lawler and her two dogs Baxter and Shirley. 
    Kate is absolutely in love with her dogs - and long with her little girl Noa - they are her children! Baxter is 13 - he’s a border terrier and joins us on our walk in style in his very own dog buggy. Shirley is a mixed breed terrier rescue who tends to leads the pack and loves to chase squirrels. 
    We discuss the qualities that Kate has that led her to win series three of Big Brother, the joy that Shirley and Baxter bring to her life and her thoughts on having a fulfilled life - with, or without children.

    Patrick Grant (Part One)

    This week, Emily and Raymond are taking a walk in Battersea Park with the brilliant Patrick Grant! Patrick is well-loved for his role as a judge on The Great British Sewing Bee. He’s also a designer, entrepreneur, owner of Community Clothing - a sustainable fashion label. 
    Although Patrick doesn’t currently have a dog, he has a wealth of dog experience from his idyllic childhood in Edinburgh - which sounds like it was a scene straight out of The Wind In The Willows. He explains the origins of his lifelong interest in clothes and we discuss the subtleties of being well-dressed. 
    Patrick’s book LESS - Stop Buying So Much Rubbish: How Having Fewer Better Things Can Make Us Happier is available now!

    David Baddiel (Part One)

    David Baddiel (Part One)

    Join Emily and Ray to take a walk on Hampstead Heath with the legendary comedian and friend of the podcast, David Baddiel.
    David is a huge cat lover - he’s had over 20 cats in his life. However, we popped down the road to see Frank Skinner who kindly lent us his dog Poppy for our walk. Frank seemed very relaxed with the idea of us taking Poppy out - but David wasn’t so sure...
    We chat about David’s childhood dog Dingle, his origin story with cats in the Baddiel household, his mum’s affair with a golf memorabilia salesman and David's unconventional birthday party invitation.
    David’s new memoir My Family is out on Thursday 4th July. You can buy your copy here!
    A Muslim & A Jew Go There - hosted by David Baddiel and Sayeeda Warsi - is available on all podcast platforms. 
    Listen to Emily and Ray's last walk with David from January 2018 here!
