Episode 106: Family Days Out with Jimi Famurewa

How do you have a great family day out? Where are the best places to go? And how do you survive the whole thing without going absolutely bonkers? To answer all these questions we have the hilarious Jimi Famurewa!

He tells us all about his book, Family London, and reveals his favourite places to visit in the capital and beyond. We also talk about why the Swedes are so good at parenting, and discuss Jimi's career as an entertainment journalist. Find out what it's like to hang out with Leonardo DiCaprio and John Boyega, and why Harrison Ford can't hold his yams.

Jimi's book is out now, and you can find him on Twitter @jimfam. Read his prizewinning short story, Teddybird, at 4thestate.co.uk.

This episode was recorded at MEATliquor, who supplied all the food and lovely cocktails. We went to the East Dulwich branch because we're lazy, but their new opening in Queensway features bowling and ice skating, so it's a great family day out. Or great for making someone else take the kids ice skating while you eat your own weight in deep fried gherkins. THEY ARE SO GOOD.

The Scummy Mummies book is OUT NOW! We hope you like it, and if you do, we'd love an Amazon review!
