    Amy Jones: Writer and Mother

    Amy Jones: Writer and Mother

    Series 3 of the Motherworldly Podcast is all about books.


    Amy Jones is all over the social medias as @jimsyjampots, where she shares her family life in all its glory; she's a writer and podcaster, and the auther of The To Do List and Other Debacles, a memoir of mental health. In our conversation, we explored the process of writing, the importance of to-do lists, and the impact that motherhood has had on her.

    Zainab Yate: First Time Author

    Zainab Yate: First Time Author

    Series 3 of the Motherworldly Podcast is about books.


    I spoke to Zainab on what might have been the hottest day of the year, but we managed to focus our minds and had a really interesting discussion of breastfeeding aversion as well as - of course - breastfeeding in its wider context. I used the term "skin hunger" and thanks to my friend Meg have tracked down the correct attribution - it's in Kerstin Uvnas Moberg's book The Oxytocin Factor.

    Amy Brown: Prolific Author

    Amy Brown: Prolific Author

    The third series of the Motherworldly podcast is about books: writing them, reading them, not writing them, having more of them than you can ever read.


    Amy Brown is single-handedly responsible for the latter, churning out a book or two most days. In this episode we talk incessantly about her latest book, which I'm more than usually excited about because I'm in it!

    Sherry Bevan: Writer

    Sherry Bevan is a life coach, breastfeeding counsellor, mother, and president of the NCT. She tells me about her life and her writing process. This one's right down the feminist end of the conversational spectrum.

    Rachel Plachinski: Book Lover

    Rachel Plachinski: Book Lover

    Series 3 of the Motherworldly Podcast is all about books: reading them, writing them, loving them.


    Rachel and I chat about her "bible," Carl Rogers' On Becoming A Person, a 1961 book that really sets out his philosophy. We also touch on other books that have been important to her, and whether or not she might one day write one herself. It's so lovely to talk to someone about a book they really love and keep on going back to throughout their life.
