Noughts + Crosses on BBC1, Soccer Mommy, U.S. Girls, I Am Not Okay With This

DON’T CALL ME BLANCA: Does BBC1’s adaptation of Malorie Blackman’s race-inversion counterfactual Noughts + Crosses work as drama as well as thought experiment? New albums from “queen of screwing up” Soccer Mommy and Toronto-based megapop torch singer U.S. Girls. And a lonely teen girl discovers her Hulk-like superpower is… incipient lesbianism? That’s I Am Not Okay With This on Netflix. 

Legendary presenter of THE WORD, 6Music DJ and “smellologist” Katie Puckrik and Michael Hann of The Guardian and the FT join Andrew and Siân to crack the top of this week’s crème brûlée of pop culture.  

Produced and presented by Andrew Harrison and Siân Pattenden. Audio production by Alex Rees. Bigmouth is a Podmasters production.
