Rosie is joined by comedian and author Katy Brand and journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer to discuss how cultural influences from Dirty Dancing and Mary Poppins to James Bond books and Blondie influenced their early thoughts about love and sexuality, internet dates in the days of dial-up, how desire waxes and wanes during midlife particularly for women at perimenopause and how this can lead us to suddenly fancying someone totally inappropriate, how breakups can fuel our creativity... and a brilliant Brixton breakfast breakup story.

Recorded at Port Eliot Festival on July 28 2019. The next London live recordings are at Kings Place on Oct 11 and Nov 8. Book tickets at https://www.kingsplace.co.uk/whats-on/the-breakup-monologues/

The guest in this week's episode is the most qualified yet, as Miranda Sawyer shares the time she solved a crime of her own and then lends her considerable detecting skills to a case which has some much needed help from beyond the grave.

And is this week's listener crime an elaborate sibling confession? We think it may be....

Media Masters - Miranda Sawyer

Read more

Miranda Sawyer is a journalist, broadcaster and best-selling author. Starting in the 80s at iconic magazine Smash Hits, she was synonymous with ‘Madchester’ and the rave scene in the 90s, and has since built a portfolio career covering print, radio, television and publishing. She has been the Observer’s audio critic for 13 years, and has interviewed artists from the Happy Mondays to Madonna. In this in-depth interview, she describes the joy of writing a well-crafted hatchet job, shares her definitive guide for overcoming a midlife crisis – and vents her frustration that the long overdue rise of women radio presenters is still limited to former ‘ladettes’.

James and Jo are off to another famous kitchen, this time home to the writer and journalist Miranda Sawyer. Oh, and her dog, so if you hear anything weird, that's why.


They talk about Miranda's book, Out of Time, middle age, and Meghan Markle who was just down the road when we recorded. And we have our first reader "Is It Just Me", so do email us with your suggestions. So, is it just me who'll tell people what we really think? Who doesn't like fake tan? And who doesn't know everyone in our family?


This week's episode was recorded on January 9 in Miranda's kitchen. It was edited by Kat Brown, with music by Martin Austwick.

Word Podcast 267 - Miranda Sawyer and Barry McIlheney

Play
Read more
David Hepworth started at Smash Hits in the late 70s, Mark Ellen joined in the early 80s, Barry McIlheney arrived in the middle of the decade and Miranda Sawyer came along in the late 80s. Therefore they were well placed to talk about such key Smash Hits experiences as being pinned to a door by Jimmy Pursey, taking Bananarama to Burger King, asking U2 to draw a duck and getting a bit tired and going home halfway through a Stone Roses interview. All this and more in this bumper ish.

#42 Miranda Sawyer (Journalist & Music Critic): What's A Modern Midlife Crisis?

Play
Read more

Miranda is a writer and broadcaster. She writes regularly for The Observer and The Mirror. Her first writing job was at Smash Hits, in 1988. Then Select magazine, where she won a PPA award for Writer of the Year. During the 90s, she had a column in Time Out and she wrote for The Face. She makes documentaries for Radio 4 and interview musicians and artists for The Culture Show. She wrote a book called Park and Ride, about Britain’s relationships with its suburbs and her most recent book is called Out Of Time which is a very modern look at the midlife crisis – delving into the truth, and lies, of the experience and how to survive it - and how a midlife crisis doesn’t necessarily mean running off with a Pilates teacher, or spending thousands on a trip to Bali to find yourself. I have had the pleasure of attending a Bug event in London hosted by Miranda and she is brilliant and funny and I loved recording this episode so much. We talk life, family, careers, money and what a quiet subtle midlife crisis looks like.
