SIM Ep 733 Pod 205: Ultrarunning, understanding beauty, and The Witches of Eastprick

251km across the Sahara on foot? Erm… Sabrina Pace-Humphreys tells Mickey about the Marathon Des Sables, aka “the toughest footrace on earth” and what in the sweet fancy fuck inspired her to do it. She also chats about how ultrarunning and rural racism led her to activism, founding the Black Trail Runners, and writing her memoir, Black Sheep

Jen’s been on the Zoom with Shelina Janmohamed, author of the new book, BeYOUtiful, and they’re talking about why we need to mix things up when it comes to understanding beauty, and how advertising is finally shifting away from the male gaze when flogging products to women.

Inspired by The Witches of Eastwick, which is this week’s Rated or Dated, the team somehow manage to manifest Chris Hemsworth for tea-making duties. And it’s Platty Jubbs weekend ahoy in the Bush Telegraph, although Hannah and Jen’s chat about booze culture might well put you off your royal insignia-ed pint. No worries, just light up that royal insignia-ed reefer and let a horse sort any admin.
