GLAMOUR Presents: Hey It’s OK

United Kingdom

Jo Elvin, editor-in-chief of British GLAMOUR, presents the talk show version of the magazine’s popular Hey It’s OK feature. Each week, Jo is joined by two members of the GLAMOUR team and a celebrity guest to mull over the burning questions that have got the office talking, from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Episodes

41. Geri Horner, Random Dislikes, Getting Older & Love  

Jo and James take the podcupboard on tour to join the one and only Geri, who this week released her first single in 12 years – Angels in Chains, a tribute to her late friend George Michael. She talks about loss, loneliness and coming to terms with George's death, and how to move on.


And of course, it's time to recruit Geri to the GLAMOUR features meeting fold. So hey, is it OK to dislike somebody, and not really know why? To be a bit scared of getting older? And is it OK to tell your friends that you love them? (Spoiler: this is when Geri went around the room and hugged everyone and some people cried.)


Don't forget, Hey, It's OK... will be at the London Podcast Festival on September 16th! Join Jo, James and a celebrity guest for a special live episode. Tickets available at kingsplace.co.uk.

40. Charlotte Ritchie, Muting Friends, Imaginary Speeches & Womanhood  

Charlotte Ritchie, the star of Call The Midwife, Fresh Meat, and now The Philanthropist at London's Trafalgar Studios, got chatting in the GLAMOUR podcupboard with Jo and Entertainment Director Helen Whitaker. The play has themes that relate to the recent terror attack in Manchester, and in this episode, recorded on May 26 and so before the attacks at London Bridge, Charlotte described what it feels like to be in a show that suddenly has very real references to current events, and how director Simon Callow decided to proceed. And the trio discuss things that matter, and really don't. Is it OK to mute your friends on social media? Is it OK to waltz around your kitchen making an imaginary awards speech, or declaring your Desert Island Discs? And is there a 'wrong way' and a right way to be a woman?
