Episode 34: Emma Barnett

Monday, 28 June

Journalist Emma Barnett is a regular presenter of Newsnight and

has recently become the main presenter of Woman's Hour on BBC Radio 4.

She's good at asking questions and bringing people to account but says

she's had to learn patience because as a mum, 'losing your shit' gets

you nowhere! Emma struggled to get pregnant, which after two and half

years she realised was because of endometriosis. She had her baby

through IVF but she says she will always have one foot in the camp of

those who would like to be mothers but have not managed it. We talked

about childcare, we talked about periods a lot, and if you stay listening till

the end you will hear us sharing our most embarrassing stories with each other.
