Finding Out You're Pregnant at 5 Months and Mental Health with Yasmin Johal

In this episode of Doing It! Hannah joins YouTuber, blogger and mum Yasmin Johal. They talk about Yasmin’s unique pregnancy story, who found out she was pregnant after five months following doctors’ misdiagnoses. After getting pregnant at the end of her second year of uni, Yasmin discusses how she stayed on as a student (graduating this year!) while being a mum, and what the uni offered (or didn’t) to support her. Sharing about her experience on the mum blog space, they look at its lack of diversity and what the ‘correct’ mum is presented as being. Finally, they discuss their experiences of being a YouTuber at uni, and what makes others see you as ‘successful’.Yasmin Johal: https://www.instagram.com/yasminjohalx/📝CHECK OUT THE SHOW NOTES 📝 https://doingitpodcast.co.uk ✨CONNECT WITH US ✨https://www.instagram.com/doingitpodcast https://twitter.com/doingitpodcast 👀WANT EARLY & AD-FREE ACCESS TO EPISODES?👀https://www.patreon.com/hannahwitton

Gay Teens in YA Books with Calum McSwiggan

It’s a BONUS episode of Doing It! where Hannah joins writer, digital content creator & LGBT+ advocate Calum McSwiggan for a book chat. They share their thoughts on the book Jack of Hearts (& Other Parts), which Calum read for Penguin’s LGBT+ book club. Exploring sex education and how sex is represented in YA, they ask: “Where else do young people get depictions of sex?” They also look at a nuanced vision of homophobia, talking about prejudice within the LGBT+ community itself. Finally, they discuss their uncomfortable reading about Jack’s first time having anal sex – was this as consensual as Jack seems to say it is? Do we look back when we’re older on ‘bad sex’ and reframe that experience?Calum McSwiggan: https://www.instagram.com/calummcswiggan/📝CHECK OUT THE SHOW NOTES 📝 https://doingitpodcast.co.uk ✨CONNECT WITH US ✨https://www.instagram.com/doingitpodcast https://twitter.com/doingitpodcast 👀WANT EARLY & AD-FREE ACCESS TO EPISODES?👀https://www.patreon.com/hannahwitton

Chronic Pain and Losing Your Virginity "Late" with Scarlett Curtis

Welcome to the first episode of Doing It! where Hannah joins author, journalist and activist Scarlett Curtis in her London flat. Together they talk through battles with body image and losing virginities 'late' and ask whether not having sex makes you a 'bad feminist'. They also explore how Scarlett used feminist literature as an antidote to abusive doctor/patient relationships and inspired a road to recovery: "Reading about women’s oppression makes me so happy! It’s like geography nerds.” Finally, they offer insight for aspiring activists with this simple question -- where are you best served?📝CHECK OUT THE SHOW NOTES 📝 https://doingitpodcast.co.uk ✨CONNECT WITH US ✨https://www.instagram.com/doingitpodcast https://twitter.com/doingitpodcast 👀WANT EARLY & AD-FREE ACCESS TO EPISODES?👀https://www.patreon.com/hannahwitton
