Emily Atack

2023-01-2301:04:54

How does sexual harassment – both online and in real life – affect a person’s sense of self worth? This is one of the many questions actor and comedian Emily Atack has been asking herself and others in her new documentary, and as she campaigns for parliament to change the law around cyberflashing. In this chat, Emily and Fearne share their experiences of everything from catcalling and being sent unsolicited photos online, to the way the world has made them feel about their own bodies. Plus, they try to unravel why it is that society struggles to allow women to be sexy and smart at the same time. Emily Atack: Asking For It? will air on BBC Two and iPlayer at 9pm on Tuesday 31st January. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Dr Julie

2023-01-1601:01:32

It’s important to let the down days happen, to acknowledge them as part of the human experience rather than trying to fight them. Clinical psychologist and online educator Dr Julie believes the goal of therapy shouldn’t be to make ourselves be constantly happy all the time. In this chat, Fearne and Dr Julie explore why anxieties and fears can sometimes serve us, and why it’s healthy to allow space in our lives for all emotions to come and go. Dr Julie also talks through some of the tools we can all try to use when we’re in distress that – if practiced regularly – could have a real impact on our mental health. Dr Julie’s book, Why Has Nobody Told Me This Before?, is out now. You can follow Dr Julie on Tik Tok: www.tiktok.com/@drjuliesmith Hosted on Acast.

I really enjoyed this episode. Sam comes across as a truly nice guy who deserves all of his success through his own hard work. I had the pleasure of seeing him live at a very small gig in Manchester in Gorrilla just before he announced he was doing Eurovision. he was amazing and his voice is beautiful.

too many f words. no warnings about language. I am tired of never knowing whether it is okay to listen to podcasts in the kitchen while I'm cooking. it's a shame as I wanted to listen but found the swearing a turn off so I did.

I listen to Happy Place regularly and was shocked by the ending. Not a dig at Fern, but I think this needed further explanation or support. A lot of vulnerable people at present.
