SIM Ep 527 Pod 164: Asia, medals and inappropriate dancing to Super Freak

How has the pandemic affected attitudes towards Asians in the UK? And how useful a descriptor is the word Asian anyway? This week, Hannah chats to writer Ava Wong Davies about this and her episode of Future Theatre's new Fully Amplified podcast. With the Olympics in full flow, Jen's been on the blower to former European, World, Commonwealth and Olympic track cycling champion Jo Rowsell about the switch from podium to pundit and Team GB's medal hopes. Mickey's looking at Olympic outfit nonsense in Sexism of the Week and we're asking when a shark attack is not really a shark attack in BT. Plus we're pushing a bus uphill in this week's Rated and Dated and still having a lovely time, as we watch 2006's Little Miss Sunshine
