This week it’s the superb Scummy Mummies - and it's chaos! We had them round Annabel’s kitchen table one evening - back when such things were allowed - to talk terrible sex injuries and why we’re all feeling so insane. They are properly funny stand-ups, properly famous podcasters and properly brilliant human beings: we love Helen Thorn and Ellie Gibson so excuse the swearing, the snorting and the general mayhem of this recording. It was just bliss to do.
On the podcast this week we have a guest with a unique perspective on the horrors of getting dressed in the morning. It’s hard enough when you only have yourself to answer to.

Well, Samantha Cameron had years of those terrifying camera flashes and, since then, she has amalgamated her experience and channelled it into her own label, Cefinn, renowned for its solution-oriented elegance. So if anyone can give us some tricks to get out the door looking like a fully functional human woman even when our minds and bodies are betraying us, it's her. P.S.
