Description

Vogue Williams hosts The Apple and The Tree, a brand new podcast where a parent and their adult child get to ask each other about the parts of their shared history they’ve always wanted to know more about, but never given themselves the time to do so. These are deep, intimate and revealing conversations that move through love, grief, shame, sexuality, religion, addiction, identity and so much more.

Because these shows were recorded in our guest’s own homes, it’s like you’ve been invited in to sit alongside them and hear exactly how their lives have unfurled. At the end of each episode, Vogue and the guests unpack what’s been shared to discover if the apple really does fall far from the tree.

In Reading in Berkshire we meet Ally and her mum Wendy. As a teenager, Ally discovered she had MRKH, a rare congenital disorder that means she was born without a vagina, womb or cervix. Understandably, this was extremely difficult for Ally and her mum to deal with and Ally lived through some wild years with difficult relationships and risky behaviour. Now an advocate and spokesperson for the MRKH community, Ally says she has moved past any shame or regret, but always wanted to ask her mum if she’s sad she’ll never have grandchildren.   Learn more about your ad choices.

In Flitwick in Bedfordshire, we meet Ana and her daughter, Laura. Ana was born in Romania and moved to the UK when she was just 20 and expecting a child. Laura wanted to talk to her mum about her life in Romania, the shame culture the country still suffers with and how her parents built the good life that they all now enjoy. Ana talks about the racism and prejudice she has faced - and sometimes still faces - being Romanian in the UK, while Laura wanted to talk about her own desire to interact more with Romania, a country she feels part of, even if that country doesn’t seem to love her back.

Sam & Lak

2024-04-1958:23

In Tottenham, North London, we meet Sam and his dad, Lak. Sam wanted to talk about growing up gay in the Indian community and his dad's reaction to his coming out. Lak knew his son would always remember his reaction and he treated the news with acceptance and understanding, something which Sam says is still rare across South Asian culture - although he wonders if there was a clue in Lak’s Mariah Carey, George Michael and Abba CDs?
