SIM Ep 530 Pod 165: Ice cream, allotments and a (terrifying) chocolate factory

There’s been more than a bit of grief, loss, and mental health problems doing the rounds lately, as we come out the other side of a harrowing 18 months, for many. So Mick caught up with artist The Fandangoe Kid, to talk about her new project Fandangoe Whip, and how she’s opening up conversations via the medium of ice cream – is there any better way? It’s National Allotments Week, so Hannah chats to Diane Appleyard, from the National Allotment Society, about the restorative powers of veg-growing, gooseberries, and not snogging Michael Gove.


In Jenny Off The Blocks Jen is talking all things Olympics, and in Rated or Dated, oompa, loompa doompadee doo, will we think this week’s film is quite poo? That’s right, we’re watching 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Meanwhile, there’s immigration shambles, Disney fuckhousery, and peachy (ish) Schapps in the Bush Telegraph.
