Paloma Faith, Plants, Slow-Burning Relationships & Pep Talks

The singer Paloma Faith joins Jo and James in the podcupboard this week, armed with a Full English (NB: not a code, the actual breakfast), and some incredibly anecdotes.


They discuss Paloma's fourth album, The Architect, and how close she is to breaking a musical record; what seven years of therapy has taught her about relationships; and the “classic mum”texts she gets from her mum Pam. Plus an anecdote involving The Bodyguard and Anusol that is...gloriously unexpected?


And the team discuss their IIJMS: is it just Paloma who can’t keep a plant alive? Is it just James who doesn’t believe in slow-burn relationships – it’s immediate chemistry or die? And is it just Jo who gives herself pep talks?


This week's episode wasrecorded on May 30. It was edited by Kat Brown, with music by Martin Austwick.
