SIM Ep 436 Pod 131: Drinking, publishing and so long Trump!

There's been some good news! At long ruddy last! So this Bush Telegraph is the chirpiest it's been for a long time, but that's not all there is to enjoy in this week's podcast. Mickey chats to publishing legend and utter delight Carmen Callil about founding Virago press, class, poverty, history, the need for revolution, and being a difficult woman. Meanwhile, ahead of Alcohol Awareness Week, Hannah chats to Ailsa Clarke about raising a son with FASD and why the conversation about alcohol and pregnancy remains so contentious in the UK. And in Rated or Dated, we watch 1999's The Green Mile, which is apparently “sometimes long”. You're telling us, Hanks, you're telling us!
