SIM Ep 726 Pod 201: Marys, esports, and a golden ball or two

Marys Seacole is Jackie Sibblies Drury's new play exploring the life of the Scottish-Jamaican nurse who treated British soldiers during the Crimean War, and of other ‘Marys’, those in the caring professions. Hannah catches up with Kayla Meikle and Olivia Williams, who play Seacole and Florence Nightingale respectively, to chat about in what – and indeed whom – society places value.


In Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen talks to Vera Wienken, senior brand manager at Riot Games, about esports and the forthcoming Game Changers tournament. And in this week’s Rated or Dated, hold on to your sports bras and keep your eye on the ball, as Mick and Jen revisit 2002’s Bend It Like Beckham.
