SIM Ep 378 Pod 111: Sex, lies and the worst film of all time

As you probably know, we love old people here at Standard Issue, so our Jen got on the phone to Meryl Davies, chief executive of Re-engage, about respecting your elders and what we can do to help those who are socially distancing right now. We asked journalist and folk music fiend Hazel Davis to get on the phone with musician and ethnomusicologist Dr Fay Hield to chat about how the pandemic is affecting musicians and the inventive ways in which they’re surviving.

Hannah chats to Dr Alyson McGregor about her new book Sex Matters and how Covid-19 presents an opportunity to change how we conduct health studies and collect statistics. Jen's talking big money and the chances of skipping the Tokyo Olympics entirely in Jenny Off The Blocks and in DDD, we watch classic bad filmPlan 9 From Outer Space.
