SIM Ep 379 Pod 112: Dying well, postpartum psychosis, and things to do in an IKEA car park

Jen might be on mat leave, but we have her time-travelling counterpart in this episode. She's talking to author and illustrator Laura Dockrill about her new book What Have I Done?, an account of her experience of postpartum psychosis and the continued misconceptions and misinformation around women’s health. Mick chats with Dr Rachel Clarke, specialist in palliative medicine, author of Dear Life, and wonderfully outspoken supporter of the NHS, about the possibility of dying well and the joy of a prize bull in a hospice. Mick and Hannah welcome Lucy Reynolds to the DDD fold as they tackle 1998 asteroid flick Deep Impact and find the lack of hope somewhat refreshing. Also, the roar of fury continues in the Bush Telegraph, and there’s genuine, heartfelt, no-word-of-a-lie sympathy for men’s experience of the menopause in SOTW. Altogether now: poor men.
