SIM Ep 424 Pod 127: Klopping, birthing and “hit it with a hammer!”

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp and comedian Laura Lexx is the romance we all need right now. Yeah yeah, it’s not real, but it is joyous. You can and should read all about it in Laura’s book, Klopp Actually: (Imaginary) Life With Football’s Most Sensible Heartthrob. She tells our Mick how it all came about, what the man himself thinks so far, and why it’s best to treat Twitter like a child. 

Meanwhile, Jen's slowly easing herself back into work by talking to Rowan Davies head of policy and campaigns at Mumsnet and Maria Booker, programmes director at Birthrights, about their survey on consent and information in the antenatal period. 

In Rated or Dated, Hannah is forced to gird her loins as she and Mick find out whether Goldie-Hawn vehicle Private Benjamin has stood the test of 40 years' time. And there are bears, hammers, Mickey for POTUS (again), and more bears (but chonky) in the Bush Telegraph.
