Aka, Mr Margaret Cabourn-Smith. And Happy Birthday Crushed - it's a whole year since we released the first episode.
It's a special birthday episode, with Margaret put on the spot by her husband, and guest, Dan Tetsell. Dan is a writer and actor who you may have seen in everything from puppet-actor-fest Mongrels to hot-actor-fest Hollyoaks (and most recently Eastenders). He's also Margaret's husband - and the man who has to live with her crushes on a day to day basis. Is that hard? He'll let us know.
They talk about his crushes - from school to screen, and the Christmas Crushed Calendar he makes Margaret every year, featuring her latest pashes. Which frankly should be merch (note to self, ask Dan how many can he make...)
It's hard to believe it's been a whole year of Crushed. Thank YOU so much for listening, for supporting it, and to everyone who has left kind words on Twitter, reviews on podcasting apps or followed us on Instagram or subscribed to our bloody Substack - thank you, thank you, thank you. Honestly - it makes us feel so happy to have you with us.
We have lots of plans for the show this year. Our first live date is on sale now here:
More to follow when we can book them in.
Margaret's article looking back at the show is here:
(Yes, it's on Substack, we're not obsessed it's just Twitter seems to be on fire at the moment, so we thought we'd better branch out).
We'd love to hear from you. You can email us:
Or find us on Twitter or Insta @CrushedbyMCS
Or sign up for the bloody Substack and then we can send you occasional emails to let you know about things like the live shows.
Til next time,
Team Crushed xx
