Miranda Sawyer, Telling People What You Really Think, Fake Tan & Not Knowing Your Family

James and Jo are off to another famous kitchen, this time home to the writer and journalist Miranda Sawyer. Oh, and her dog, so if you hear anything weird, that's why.

They talk about Miranda's book, Out of Time, middle age, and Meghan Markle who was just down the road when we recorded. And we have our first reader "Is It Just Me", so do email us with your suggestions. So, is it just me who'll tell people what we really think? Who doesn't like fake tan? And who doesn't know everyone in our family?

This week's episode was recorded on January 9 in Miranda's kitchen. It was edited by Kat Brown, with music by Martin Austwick.
