SIM Ep 501 Pod 154: High hopes, low take-up and driving off a cliff at the end

The old world slowly returns, so Hannah's been on the blower to Standard Issue fave and new comedian Vix Leyton to chat about how she's salvaged a good year from a very bad one and our gradual reset to "normal". With Covid vaccine take-up still low among black and ethnic minority communities, Jen's been chatting to the Runnymede Trust's Halima Begum to find out why, as well as what the proposed Covid passport (er, no thanks) might mean for those groups. There's maternity rights in Jenny Off The Blocks, and in Sexism of the Week, Mickey's got some startling figures about how harassment affects women while jogging. We're all about last week's election, and reactions to it, in the Bush Telegraph and in Rated or Dated, we watch one of the boss's favourite films, Thelma Louise. No pressure.
