Dirty Mother Pukka

My therapist ghosted me
Friends Vogue Williams and Joanne McNally host this weekly podcast, which comes with 100% honesty guaranteed.
The podcast took place after Joanne’s therapist ghosted her – ignored her calls, refused to answer the clinic door or speak to her after she tracked him down at Enfield Crematorium while he was scattering his aunt’s ashes.
Together, she and Vogue give 100% unqualified, unsubstantiated yet candid and honest advice on the plethora of issues they and many others continue to face.

How to fail with Elizabeth Day
How to Fail is the podcast that celebrates all the things that didn’t go right.
Each week, host Elizabeth Day hosts a celebrity guest to discuss three of their biggest failures in life.
The podcast was born out of the belief that living and learning from failure helps us be more successful.
