    EP395 - Money and Seeing Yourself with Sabina Khan

    EP395 - Money and Seeing Yourself with Sabina Khan

    Some of us are accustomed to seeing people like us as the main characters in the books we read. But for many, that isn't the case. Harriet is joined by Sabina Khan, author of Zara Hossain Is Here. Harriet and Sabina discuss the importance of being able to identify with the people we're reading about, and how Sabina's own experience shaped her writing.


    Then, how often do you buy now, pay later? It seems so tempting, but these services could be doing more harm than good. Are they really putting women in the best position when it comes to managing their finances? While we're talking about money, one listener asks about saving for a mortgage, and what they're sacrificing to do so.

    EP394: Health and Hormones

    EP394: Health and Hormones

    Hormones are one of the biggest factors in how we feel and act; to understand them is to understand our bodies better. Harriet is joined by Amy Thomson, the founder of Moody Month, an app that helps you optimise your everyday physical and mental wellbeing, partly by tracking where your hormone levels are. Amy is also the author of Moody: A 21st Century Hormone Guide, which shares some of the research and science behind how our hormones work. 


    Also, the government is looking into women's experience with healthcare, but is it too little too late? And one listener wants to get from couch to 5k.

    EP393: Internalised Misogyny and the Colour of Motherhood

    EP393: Internalised Misogyny and the Colour of Motherhood

    For those who have experienced it, motherhood is a life-changing event, and everyone's experience of it is vastly different. Harriet is joined by author Pragya Agarwal, whose own experience was strewn with difficulties - from a tainted blood transfusion - to the pressure put on both her and her unborn baby regarding gender. Pragya's book M(other)hood explores how women of colour and women of different socio-economic classes experience motherhood differently.


    Also in this episode, are we being misogynistic from the inside? And one listener asks something we've all wondered, how do we know when we're old?

    EP392 - Kate Winslet and Geek Girls with Holly Smale

    EP392 - Kate Winslet and Geek Girls with Holly Smale

    Boys and men are routinely diagnosed as autistic more than women and girls, who're often wrongly overlooked. One of those women was this weeks guest Holly Smale. It's only since Holly sold millions of copies of her book Geek Girl did she realise that she and the character in her book were living with autism. Harriet and Holly talk about what led Holly to get this diagnosis and what having it has made her realise about her life.

    Ep390: Sitting In and Finding Your Roots with Elizabeth Miki Brina

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget that your parents are people too. This week Harriet is joined by author Elizabeth Miki Brina who’s new book Speak, Okinawa: A Memoir reflects on the relationship between children and parents.


    Also in this episode, Harriet discusses the sit-in at the University of Warrick that’s challenging rape culture. And one listener feels like she’s been belittled by her boss, so is it time to go?
