My Son is Also Named A Tornado of Bonhomie feat. Josie Long


We speak with comedian Josie Long (@josielong) about a recent article in the Atlantic about whether or not Boris Johnson is Britain’s Trump. It’s a terrible article by a guy who knows nothing about Britain, but we wanted to get down to the individual details of why it’s just so infuriating. So, enjoy this episode where we’re in a good mental space. We also talk about a startup that, despite its name, has nothing to do with coffee.

Brown Baby Podcast

This week's guest is stand-up comedian, writer and actor, Josie Long. One of the funniest, more special people I know. Always there with positivity, soul, wisdom and jokes. Josie has been one of the most important people in my life and I get to chat to her in this SEASON FINALE of the Brown Baby podcast.

This is a podcast Inspired by my memoir, Brown Baby: A Memoir of Race, Family and Home. A frank, funny and poignant look at parenting, Brown Baby will spark honest, self-effacing conversation about how we tell our kids about the world.

10: People are pretty cool, on the whole. With Josie Long

The Panic Years

This week I was lucky enough to speak to the comedian, actor, screenwriter, activist and mother, Josie Long. I was desperate to get Josie on the podcast because, from Love and Adventure to Cara Josephine, to Something Better to Tender, Josie’s shows have been the very mirror to my Panic Years. We spoke about work, love, break ups, bringing chaos into your life and the decision to have a baby. Oh and nationalising childcare. Imagine. You can follow Josie on Twitter at @JosieLong https://twitter.com/JosieLong and on Instagram at @josielong https://www.instagram.com/josielong/?hl=en I also interviewed the brilliant Dr Anita Mitra about menstrual health, polycystic ovarian syndrome and, put simply, how our bodies work. You can follow Dr Anita Mitra on Twitter at @Gynaegeek https://twitter.com/GynaeGeek on Instragram at @gynaegeek https://www.instagram.com/gynaegeek/?hl=en and visit her website at https://www.gynaegeek.com/
