Kanye’s Basic Tweets; and an Author Special with Trans Activist and Writer, Juno Dawson

Amber Rudd’s resignation; Mary Beard’s sparkly sneaks; Kanye’s ‘basic Plato’ tweets - oh and the news that beer goggles really DO exist. Yup, it’s just another week at The High Low.


This week sees the return of the author special, with trans activist and YA author, Juno Dawson, whose 14th book about a teenage heroin addict, Clean, had us both hooked. We discuss addiction, privilege, teenhood and trans issues with Juno, whilst her miniature chihuahua Prince, looked on.
