  • From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as anti-woke scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge. New episodes every Monday - with trailers on his Twitter page: @andrewgold_ok and Instagram page: @andrewgold_ok.


    With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest. Some weeks it'll be with somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or an ex-Muslim whose family tried to kill her. Other episodes will have interviews with such leading minds as Conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and feminist Helen Pluckrose.


    It was picked in Apple's prestigious New & Noteworthy category and has been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Get in touch or leave a review - it helps boost it up those charts!

  • 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.

  • This is a weekly podcast of funny stories for kids. There are side-splitting versions of my own fractured fairy tales. Also short stories from some of my best-selling books, featuring characters from 'The Adventures of Nanny Piggins' and 'Friday Barnes, Girl Detective'. The stories are perfect for bedtime, long car rides or even if you're just stuck waiting a really long time at the doctor's office. They're written for 7-11 year olds but these are tales the whole family can enjoy. The silliness is ageless. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoy recording it. After years of being a children's author, typing away in my office with only my goldfish for company, I was bursting to tell my stories out-loud and with lots of silly voices! So please - sit back, get comfy and enjoy some amazing, some silly and some just plain ludicous tales direct from my imagination to you.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
