SIM Ep 908 Pod 278: Chip stacking, whip cracking and nick-nacking
Poker might be male dominated, but is it a man's game? Is it hell, says science writer and competitive player Alex O'Brien. She talks to Hannah about what poker can teach us about what to do when the chips are down and her new book The Truth Detective. Jen's been chatting to director Anastasia Osei-Kuffour about biological clocks, the weight of expectations, and new play, Brenda’s Got A Baby. And in Jenny Off The Blocks, she's talking about the WTA finals, and more besides. In Sexism of The Week, Mick's finally done all the sexism. (Of course she hasn't). And there's plenty more on show, as we watch 1953's Calamity Jane. Dagnabbit!
