SIM Ep 485 Pod 147: Fighting, forgetting, and the sex life of pandas

At just 20 years old, Ameena Hamid is Britain’s youngest theatre producer and a champion of those whose stories don't get told. She chats to Hannah about supporting young graduates, putting underrepresented voices centre stage, and why it’s key that theatre pays attention to who its audience is and – crucially – who its audience can be.

Grooming and exploitation of children has risen during lockdown, so Jen got on the blower to Becky Fedia, national programme manager at The Children’s Society, to discover more and find out what we can all do to help if we spot something that doesn’t look right. And in Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen’s talking about a landmark deal for the Women’s Super League that’s mainly good news… right, Jen?

There’s foreign policy, no policy, a load of euphemisms, panda loving, and cartoon pants in the Bush Telegraph. And grab a biro and a hot needle as we tattoo Hannah’s best ‘notes to self’ on our leg in honour of 2001’s Memento, this week’s Rated or Dated.
