SIM Ep 885 Pod 268: Names, games and flames

How much can a person's name tell us about them? Almost everything, says journalist Sheela Banerjee and in this week's podcast, she's chatting to Mickey about her book, What's In A Name? and how she’s used what we call ourselves and our kids to examine the history of modern, multicultural Britain. In Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen talks to Team GB triathlete Jess Learmonth, about being a gold medallist, support for athletes on maternity leave and gearing up for the next Olympics. So, does that mean we're not talking about the World Cup final? Of course not, in BT and SOTW, Hannah and Jen can't get enough of it. And in Rated or Dated, Mickey's picked 1998's Blade. Turn on the blood sprinklers!

NOTE: Since we recorded on Monday afternoon, Luis Rubiales has apologised for kissing Spain player, Jenni Hermoso. Rubiales said: "I was completely wrong, I have to admit it."
