Barn & Familj – Storbritannia – Anbefalte podcaster

  • Award-winning BBC journalist Andrew Gold interviews deep and quirky outsiders, such as a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath. Joining the mix are such celebrated thought leaders as feminist Helen Lewis, Lord Daniel Finkelstein and free speech advocate Andrew Doyle.

    The aim is to surprise you with a totally different story every time in this 2x Apple Noteworthy show. One week, we're in a Michigan prison with a man who accidentally killed his girlfriend in a botched suicide, the next we're in Australia with the Coffin Confessor, and then we're in the Andes with a plane-crash survivor who had to eat his friends. The only thing that links them all is their place On the Edge. 

    This is for fans of Louis Theroux, Joe Rogan and Adam Buxton. New episodes every Monday.

  • Women's voices and women's lives - topical conversations to inform, challenge and inspire.

  • In the Happy Mum, Happy Baby Podcast, Giovanna Fletcher continues the conversation about motherhood she began in her bestselling book of the same title. In a series of frank and warm conversations with other high-profile mums and dads, Gi discusses all aspects of parenthood - the highs, the lows, the challenges and rewards. There is no such thing as the perfect parent, and we’re all simply doing our best, something Giovanna fully encourages. It’s time to stop comparing ourselves and champion each other instead. Each episode is truly unique yet unifying. No topic is out of bounds, therefore this podcast is essential listening for any parent seeking solidarity and support. A Pixiu production.

  • A Hot Mess Mum. The mum who's husband, children and fellow-mums shake their heads at because they all know. The mum who forgets to bake for the bake sale. The Hot Mess Mum most likely has sent her kids to school in regular clothes on non-uniform day and has probably put left overs in her kids lunch box more than once. Most of all, the Hot Mess Mum is actually rocking it and is doing a better job than she even thinks. Kelly Pegg & Jenny Powell are joined by a different guest every week to talk about the trials and tribulations of being a mum.

  • Carrie-Anne became a single mum when her son was 6 months. After moving back into her mums flat, going onto benefits at 24 she decided to start a clothing brand. In 2 years, it became a six figure business. In her own right she’s known for her sense of style, she’s been featured in publications such as Marie Claire and the Telegraph.

    After someone insulted her by saying she was alright for a mum it got her thinking.

    When Carrie became a single mum, she didn’t feel there were any realistic, conversations about single motherhood happening in the media. She wanted to create a space where women felt like they could have a giggle and be able to relate to what was being spoken about.

    Remi was a writer as well as a new mum at the time, who had been very open about her experiences.

    In her first year of university Remi aged 22, fell pregnant with her daughter. She had been sharing her inner most thoughts, writing about how she felt and how she found motherhood. She had a very small audience, which over 18 months has grown particularly among the parenting industry. Her “honest” approach to life has gained her attention outside of her writing too. She’s added plus size model to her CV and has also been a guest on other podcasts speaking on topics such as body confidence.
    For Remi this podcast, allows her to “speak to women who are where she has been and sometimes still is... Not to speak for all single mums but to most.” It’s clear that these two are great friends. Whilst they are so different, they offer a refreshing take on lone parent stereotypes. Showing that while it can be hard, for them it was what was best for their families.
    They open the series with an episode about dating. With plans to cover co-parenting, loneliness, travel, sex and choosing to go it alone from the beginning in future episodes.
    Reinforcing that no topic is off limits and the chat is completely unfiltered, they’ve chosen not to censor themselves.
    If their listeners only take one thing away from Alright for a mum, Carrie and Remi just want it to be that they can listen to this podcast and feel less alone.

  • Together they amble through the joys and tragedies of owning a dog. From training a puppy to the death of an old pet. Along the way there are all those other humans to meet - some whose names you never know but can easily call their Spaniel. Why do some owners insist on using a special language and taking their dogs wherever they go? Is the animal there for emotional support and do onlookers worry for the humans involved? And which celebrity dog ate a condom and then sported it in the park from the other end? It's all on the hit new podcast DogPod.

Join me while I speak to a host of interesting and inspirational women who’ve really made me think - and laugh, and sometimes cry.

    Welcome to Spinning Plates.

  • Dogs.

    They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

    Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.

    She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.

    It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
