SIM Ep 540 Pod 169: Mending hearts, Kissing Emma, and big love for Tennessee Williams

It’s once more into the breakup breech for our newlywed Mickey, who this week chats to comedian and fellow podcaster Rosie Wilby about how relationship breakdowns can equal important lessons learned and why lesbians know best when it comes to leaving. Rosie covers all this and more in her book, The Breakup Monologues. Jen’s been on the Zoom with comedian and author Shappi Khorsandi about Emma Hamilton – maid, model, dancer, prostitute and actress to mistress of Lord Nelson and the protagonist of Shappi’s new YA book, Kissing Emma. They’re also talking sharp-elbowed middle-class mums and how youngsters are failed by the system.

And Hannah’s Rated or Dated pick of 1951’s A Streetcar Named Desire might out Mick as some sort of philistine, but it doesn’t stop the pair of them getting hot under the collar about the genius of Tennessee Williams.
