To really buck the plumb trend, we finally bring you an episode full of words like 'joy' and 'blessing', Cat S once again blatantly avoids committing to a best friendship with Cat W and she reveals that she's got a podcasting hat. And sometimes she puts it on. We talk to these ladies all about the life of podcasters; the good, the bad, the ugly and the godly. We hear some of the highs and lows of podcasting with biological and spiritual sisters, the unexpected places that we have found encouragement and we all agree that basically, podcasts are great fun but LOADS of work. We finish out with some Plumbbiscuits and enjoy an extended discussion about biscuits and America. Support the show (

The One about Radio

The One about Radio


In this episode, Plumb friend Chloe Wilson joins us in a tell-all episode on the glamourous life of Christian Radio Presenting. Chloe is a presenter UCB2 radio, a Christian and fellow (to Cat S) Ginger. We Plumb Chloe's depths for some expert trade advice and in turn, she pretends that she listens to us. We talk about all sorts of stuff, but we finally get down to it when we ask why Chloe has been described as: 'blond on the inside, ginger on the outside'. Chloe takes us on an historical mission praise journey, recalling some great songs and looking forward to one day being able to better her best guest so far, Graham Kendrick, with the even better Stuart Townend. We finish off with the usual Plumb Crumbles. Support the show ( )

We talked about topless sunbathing, exhibitionism, hid from some passers-by and made the usual hash of plumb crumble - plum hash, anyone?PS Anyone else love Thelma and Louise? No, I feel an episode coming on... although when I lent it to Cat W, she never even bothered to watch it Support the show ( )

We hear a bit about her story and then talk about some of the questions we had after we had read her book. We have a good discussion about medication and mental health and, spoiler alert, Sharon's take is that she would be much less Christ like without her medication! We talk a little bit about what it means to walk with someone through mental illness and then we finish off in the usual way. Support the show ( )
