257: TV's Dr Zoe Williams on teenage girls, healthy farts and being a Gladiator!
Our guest for the episode is the fabulous Dr Zoe Williams off of the This Morning and Gladiators. She tells us about how she became a doctor via an epiphany in Ayia Napa, what it's like to be an actual Gladiator, why it's important to get your teens into sports, and she attempts to solve Helen's farting problems.
Then we have some brilliant chat about Dr Zoe's new book You Grow Girl: The Complete No Worries Guide to Growing Up. Dr Zoe gives us some tips about how to talk openly to your daughters and sons about their bodies, how to have an effective argument, and the impact of social media. The book is aimed at girls aged 9 - 15, but we will be reading it to our sons, too! It is a brilliantly honest and approachable guide to all the big questions and issues young people face.
We finish the episode with some sophisticated confessions involving too much lube, too many balls and why "vulva" was our strangest heckle at a recent gig.
