SIM Ep 23 Pod 9: TV women, Bond and a big mad swim around Britain

In this week's podzine, our sportsing Jen met up with Paula McGuire, a properly inspiring woman who's about to embark on an incredible swimming challenge. Mickey's been shaken but not stirred (or maybe a bit stirred) by some Bond anniversaries and Hannah's looking at the best performances by women on TV this year so far. 

Our Sarah is all about the etiquette in this week’s SMQT and joins us for Dunleavy Does Disney, where we take a look at Lady and the Tramp. Woof. 

THE TEAM: Mickey Noonan, Hannah Dunleavy, Jen Offord and Sarah Millican.
