209: Clemmie Telford on strength, sobriety, and nipple twiddling

Our guest for this episode is the awesome Clemmie Telford, curator of the Mother of All Lists blog! She's also written a book called But Why? How to answer tricky questions from kids and have an honest conversation with yourself, and she tells us all about it. 


We discuss Clemmie's experience of going sober, why she thinks alcohol is like control pants, and how we might be responsible for driving her away from drink. There's some chat about the benefits of strength training, and why having goals isn't always a good thing. Plus, if Ellie's an onion, how come Helen is a banana? Tune in to find out.
