Episode 136: Midult Special - books, beauty, solo parenting and shardigans

By Ellie Gibson and Helen Thorn

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Tuesday, 16 October

How many times a day do you find yourself saying "I'm absolutely fine," when the truth is you're absolutely f***ed? What's wrong with the term "middle-aged"? Are we really all winging it? Or just whinging it?


Answering all these questions are the fabulous Annabel Rivkin and Emilie McMeekan, otherwise known as The Midult! They tell us all about their brilliant new book and multimedia empire.


Annabel tells us about her experience of being a solo parent. As the beauty correspondent for the Evening Standard, she also reveals what she puts on her face. We find out how Emilie managed a big career change, and how many times Helen was sick at their book launch.


I'm Absolutely Fine: A Manual for Imperfect Women is out now. You can read more from Emilie and Annabel at TheMidult.com, and they're on Instagram and Twitter @themidult. They've also just launched an ace podcast, also called I'm Absolutely Fine. Look out for a guest appearance by the Scummy Mummies coming soon...
