SIM Ep 255: Edinburgh Special 2019

With the Edinburgh Fringe fast approaching, we’re doing things a bit differently this week, bringing you a selection of our top picks for the festival, and – obviously – they’re all women. We caught up with Cally Beaton about the invisibility (or not) of women over 50; Jess Fostekew talks to us about societal perceptions of strength and femininity and raising a sexist baby; Desiree Burch talks to Mick about self-discovery and All Of The Stairs at Machu Picchu; Laura Lexx tells Jen why we need to be more discerning about where our anger goes, and Mick chats to Tiff Stevenson about finding the funny as well as the fierce in reproductive rights. PHEW!
