SIM Ep 319 Pod 94: Smashing stigma, a deadly downstairs and our women of the year

#SmashAbortionStigma is the new campaign from Marie Stopes UK, aiming to make people feel more comfortable talking about their abortion experiences – that includes the healthcare professionals, too, as Dr Yvonne Neubauer, associate clinical director at Marie Stopes UK, explains to Mickey. We're also chatting to comedian Amy Vreeke about her one-woman comedy show, The Year My Vagina Tried To Kill Me, which covers her experiences with endometriosis and the fun and games* of being misdiagnosed, dismissed and definitely not cured. 

In the Bush Telegraph, we're bigging up our women of the year, which include Caroline Criado-Perez, Greta Thunberg and Ayesha Hazarika. There are more excellent women in Jenny Off The Blocks's very own SPOTY. And there's way too much calamity to handle as Dunleavy Does Disaster checks out 2009's 2012. Nature, you absolute bastard!

*No actual fun and games
