The Prison Doctor: meet Amanda Brown

This week on the podcast, the girls are joined by Dr Amanda Brown. Twenty years ago, Amanda was content working as a GP at a quiet, suburban family practice, with many patients she'd seen throughout their entire lives. One day, after a shock meeting, she decided to leave the practice with no idea what was coming next. Out of the blue, she was asked if she wanted to take a shift at a prison. Despite never even thinking doctors worked in prisons, Amanda went on to have the most fulfilling years in her career as a prison doctor. She worked in both men's and women's prisons and talks us through their differences. She also shares why women are being failed in the prison system and how she only ever once had to ring the panic button.You can purchase Amanda's books The Prison Doctor, Women Inside and The Final Sentence hereFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comEdited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Including The Curve with Felicity Hayward

This week on the podcast, the girls are joined by model Felicity Hayward! Over the course of Felicity's twelve-year modelling career, she started noticing that although brands wanted to use her to represent plus-sized people, they weren't actually increasing the sizing range of their clothing or making their products more accessible for larger people. Tired of being used as a gimmick to boost brands' false facade of inclusivity, Felicity invented the hashtag #IncludingTheCurve to shine a light on authentically inclusive brands and designers. Keen to make a long-term impact on the fashion industry, Felicity has continued to analyse every single show at every fashion week, persisting in her mission to discover who is and isn't making real changes. Felicity dives deep with the girls about the realities of modelling, her love of fashion and why she boycotted the British Fashion Awards...Follow Felicity on Instagram @felicityhaywardFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comEdited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Em's Mum: 10-time Ironman and Queen of Having a Go

Today, we share one of our most highly requested episodes. It’s an interview with Em’s Mum! Having favoured smoking and drinking over exercise her entire life, Francie was given the opportunity to partake in an Ironman and said yes… without knowing what it actually was. An Ironman is a gruelling triathlon that consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a marathon. Yep, a 26.2 mile run ON TOP of all that. Francie’s can-do attitude and endless hard work pushed her to compete in 10 Ironmans over the course of her 50s. Francie takes us through her extraordinary journey, how she still experiences imposter syndrome and you will see why Em is her number one fan (soon you will be too)!Don't forget to check out The Hags @thehaveagosFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comEdited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Being a good person with Alice Liveing

This week, Em and Alex are joined by personal trainer and OG Instagram influencer Alice Liveing.

The truth behind Married at First Sight

TW: SuicideThis week on the podcast, Em and Alex are joined by Married at First Sight UK contestant Gemma Rose Barnes. Gemma wanted the perfect partner to complete her life, and so she signed up to MAFS in the belief that she was going to find just that, even getting a tattoo in honour of this man who she hadn’t met yet. She ended up becoming a controversial figure on MAFS due to her willingness to make crude jokes and openly talk about sex. She shares that her words were edited and taken out of context, and that her new husband’s keenness was edited out all together. Gemma experienced various mental health and addiction struggles, exacerbated due to the show, and had to make a change. Now sober, Gemma shares the reality behind this “reality” TV show, and how we as viewers need to take a more discerning attitude towards it.EDIT- A Channel 4 Spokesperson said: "Contributor care and wellbeing is of paramount importance and appropriate support is available to contributors before, during and after broadcast. Any concerns raised by contributors about safety would always be taken extremely seriously and we would take prompt and appropriate action when needed. Any action taken would always be agreed with the cast members involved to ensure they were satisfied with the resolution and outcome. Contributors are able to leave the process at any time. During filming, alcohol consumption is at the discretion of individuals, but it is monitored and limited by the production team and contributor welfare is always prioritised. All broadcast episodes of MAFS U.K. are a fair and accurate reflection of the events that took place."Follow Gemma on Instagram @reallifeofgemroseFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comEdited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

We need to talk about the housing crisis with Kwajo

This week on the podcast, Em and Alex are joined by social housing activist Kwajo Tweneboa. Kwajo grew up in social housing, and his family were housed in inhabitable conditions: unsafe spaces riddled with mould, cockroaches, mice, leaks and damp. Kwajo’s father was diagnosed with cancer and, whilst being nursed in this environment, passed away from his illness. After receiving little to no help in making their home habitable, Kwajo decided enough was enough, and gathered evidence from over 500 tenants that lived on his estate; this enabled them to shame their housing association into finally carrying out the works that were needed. From there, Kwajo has been continuing the fight, shaming landlords and housing associations across the UK into providing safe, sanitary homes for all. Follow Kwajo on Instagram and Twitter @kwajohousingFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Life after cancer with Georgie Swallow

This week, the girls are joined by creator, cancer survivor and close friend Georgie Swallow. At 26, Georgie was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma. Without any time to think, she had to jump into chemotherapy to save her life. The only way to get through the exhausting and devastating process was to remain positive and power through. Now, after a second diagnosis and treatment, Georgie is living life at her healthiest. However, this doesn’t mean that cancer doesn’t still cause her daily issues. From infertility to gut health issues, Georgie marches through each day, and as the girls say, all while exuding sunshine. Georgie uses her platform to spread joy, body confidence and share what life is like after cancer.Follow Georgie on Instagram @georgieeswallowFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

90210 and beyond with Shenae Grimes-Beech

This week on the pod, the girls chat to actress and content creator Shenae Grimes-Beech. Shenae shot to fame on 90210, after featuring in the tv show Degrassi in her native Canada. Shenae was alone in Hollywood, navigating her late teens, and grappling with misinformation and harassment from the tabloid press. This newfound attention caused rifts within the cast and meant that she felt more alone than when she arrived to the States. Shenae shares her story, smashes the misconceptions invented by the tabloids, and discusses life beyond 90210.Follow Shenae on Instagram @shenaegrimesbeech and Youtube @shenaegrimesbeechand Tiktok @joshandshenaebeechFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

The price women pay to be good

This week on the pod, the girls talk to author, podcaster and former chief content officer of goop, Elise Loehnen. Elise has co-written twelve books, five of which have been New York Times bestsellers, and Em and Alex are joined by her to discuss her latest, On Our Best Behaviour: The Price Women Pay to be Good. Why can women rarely recover from their failures? Why is the patriarchy so devastating to boys and men? Elise shares her manifesto, which argues that the seven deadly sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride) have been used by the patriarchy to control women throughout our history. This fascinating theory expands on our episode with Jameela Jamil, back in January 2022, in which the girls spoke about why, as a society, we build women up only to tear them down. Pre-order Elise's book On Our Best Behaviour: The Price Women Pay to be GoodListen to Elise's podcast: Pulling the ThreadFollow Elise on Instagram @eliseloehnenFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Charlie Craggs: ‘Trans rights and women’s rights can co-exist’

In this week’s episode, Em and Al are joined in the studio by Charlie Craggs, a British transgender actress, activist, and author from London. Charlie talks about her recent experience in court, where she was fighting a trans hate crime. She talks about how she was misgendered in court, and how the court handled her case by letting her attacker off, and what message this sends. From this, Charlie is setting up free self defence classes for trans women, to ensure other trans people feel safe in public. The three discuss activism online and the media’s role in the debate around trans rights. NOTES: Self Defence Classes for Trans People Go Fund Me: https://www.gofundme.com/f/free-self-defence-classes-for-trans-peopleCharlie’s book ‘To My Trans Sisters’: https://www.amazon.co.uk/My-Trans-Sisters-Charlie-Craggs/dp/1785923439Charlie’s IG: https://www.instagram.com/charlie_craggs/?hl=enCharlie’s BBC3 documentary: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p093wyx7Follow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced by Daisy Grant & edited by Hattie MoirMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

What is a Saturn return? with Caggie Dunlop

On this episode, Alex and Em are joined by Caggie Dunlop, who you may recognise from the earliest iteration of Made in Chelsea. Caggie's late twenties were a mixture of confusion and instability, seeing her friends settling down and having babies just as her life seemed to be at its most turbulent. Then she was introduced to the astrological concept of Saturn returns, which made her understand she wasn't alone in her discomfort. Now, with a podcast and a new book dedicated to Saturn returning, Caggie shares her story and this concept with Alex and Em. And it does happen to send Em into a bit of a spin...Find out more about Caggie and her work at https://caggiedunlop.komi.io/Follow Caggie on Instagram @caggiesworldFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Life with alopecia- “I was 13 when I started losing my hair”

This week, the girls chat to Laura Mathias. Laura was 13 when she started losing her hair. No one could help her – not her mum, her friends or even her doctor. She was told, as a teenager, that stress was contributing to her development of alopecia. Stress management wasn’t easy, how could it be at that age? And as Laura’s hair continued to fall out, she finally plucked up the courage to ask for a wig. Now, almost two decades later, Laura has found herself finally ready to accept herself and her baldness. She’s starred in photoshoots, appeared on national television and even walked a runway, all without her wig. Laura wants other women and young girls with alopecia to not feel the helplessness that she did. Laura’s confidence #journey is incredible, and Em and Alex are so proud to share her story.Follow Laura on Instagram @relightalopeciaFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.com Hosted on Acast.

"My name is Sarah, I don't want to die"

This week on the podcast, the girls talk to Sarah de Lagarde. In September 2022, Sarah was involved in a freak accident that would change her life forever. After falling asleep on the tube, Sarah woke up and realised that she had slept past her stop. Like anyone in that situation would, she promptly got up and raced over towards another train that would get her home. As she did, she slipped on the wet platform and the unimaginable happened: she tripped and ended up falling down onto the tracks. Sarah lost her arm and her leg after the train took off, and with sheer determination she shouted for help by saying “My name is Sarah, I don’t want to die”. Twenty minutes later, after what must have felt like an eternity, someone finally heard her and got her the help she needed. Almost four months on from the accident, Sarah joined Alex and Em in the studio to discuss the incident and how she has managed to get through it all so gracefully.Sarah's Instagram @sjdelargardeSarah's Go Fund MeDonate to London's Air AmbulanceFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

"If I go home, I'll be arrested" with Iranian feminist Samaneh Savadi

This week, Alex and Em talk to Iranian feminist activist Samaneh Savadi. The Islamic Republic of Iran has been experiencing turmoil as a result of the government’s misogynistic regime and the murders of many protestors and dissenters.After noticing their story views drop significantly whenever they spoke out about this issue, the girls wanted to bring a deeper awareness of it to themselves and to others by talking to Samaneh about her understanding and experience. Samaneh herself cannot go home to Iran out of fear of being arrested, or worse, for speaking out and campaigning for women’s rights. She suggests that one of the best ways to help women in Iran is by continuing to speak out, so hopefully this episode gives you the impetus to do so.Follow Samaneh on Instagram @samaneh_savadiFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Revenge against revenge porn with Georgia Harrison

Em and Alex wanted to talk to Georgia about how, over the past few years, she has been living a nightmare after falling victim to revenge porn. Her ex, sex offender and fellow reality TV star, Stephen Bear, non-consensually recorded him and Georgia having sex. He spread the video across the internet, subsequently profiting from it, which became an all-consuming battle for Georgia as she fought to not only remove the video, but to have Bear convicted.

Spotlight on Ukraine this Christmas

This week, in the run up to Christmas, Em and Al speak have decided to turn the spotlight onto Ukraine. With the war still raging on, the girls wanted to understand more about what was happening on the ground and what we can all do to help.

Dattalion is an open-source database containing Ukraine war footage and a list of verified eyewitnesses to the invasion. Founded and run by women, it was created to fight disinformation. They then spoke to Liza, a musician who escaped Ukraine (and coincidentally lives with previous guest Lizzie Pickering in the UK) about the emotional impact of fleeing her home.Find out more and follow Dattalion's work here: https://dattalion.com/Check out the White Eagle AppealYou can find Liza's music on Spotify, Youtube and follow her on Instagram @slozaworldFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

Being body-shamed on America's Next Top Model

After sharing a clip of Tyra Banks telling a America’s Next Top Model contestant to eat a burger without the bread, Alex was sent a DM. The message was from that very model, Keenyah Hill, who had been essentially told to eat less by Tyra on cycle 4 of ANTM. Keenyah, 19 at the time, had also been compared to an elephant by the judges, and edited in a way that exaggerated how much and how often she was eating. Keenyah wanted to share her version of events, how being on ANTM affected her life and what it taught her about the real world of modelling. Now a pose coach and model mentor, Keenyah teaches aspiring models how to be confident in themselves and let that confidence carry them through.You can follow Keenyah and check out her work via her Instagram @keenyah.hillFollow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.

"I immediately thought my life is over" - Patsy Stevenson

This week, we've got a slightly different episode that saw us take the podcast into central London to join the Women’s Equality Party as they Marched On The Met. When we initially contacted Patsy Stevenson, we thought this would be a standard interview week, but then we realised that there was much more that needed to be shared. Patsy attended the Sarah Everard vigil on Clapham Common in March 2021; she quickly became synonymous with the arrests that took place that day, carried out by police who saw the vigil as a breach of covid regulations. Her face was suddenly everywhere, the face of the unrest that happened when women's attempts to mourn were crushed.The story is bigger than this though. After Patsy shared her thoughts on what really happened that day, we followed her to Trafalgar Square to join a protest against institutional misogyny and racism within the police. We heard from some incredible women there, and wanted to share their thoughts with you.The speakers you heard from today were:Patsy StevensonMandu ReidMarvina Eseoghene NewtonJenn SelbyChantelle LuntDawn ButlerBell Ribeiro AddyMiss YankeySouthall Black SistersAlso, we suggest checking out Sistah Space and their work on Valerie's Law.Follow us on Instagram @shouldideletethatEmail us at shouldideletethatpod@gmail.comProduced & edited by Daisy GrantMusic by Alex Andrew Hosted on Acast.
