Adam talks to British writer Caitlin Moran about driving, life on line, feminism, wee wee drips, a painful memory of Paul McCartney and a great one of Lady Gaga. Adam also tells Caitlin about some of the responses to a recording of his daughter talking about Princess Leia’s slave dress when she was 5.
Moran believes that most women who don’t want to be called feminists don’t understand what feminism is. Her new book How to Be a Woman is a funny take on housework, high heels, body fat, abortion, marriage and, of course, Brazilian waxes.
British media personality and author, Caitlin Moran, is a provocative and popular feminist. She says women still have a lot of self-liberation to do and, in doing so, they should arm themselves with plenty of humour.
Big bums, married sex, Botox, teenagers and ageing parents. Columnist and author Caitlin Moran has tackled writing about the challenges of middle age with the same passion and humour that endeared her to readers of her best-selling feminist memoir How to Be a Woman. Her brand new book More Than A Woman is a guide to growing older. Moran was a published author at the age of 16 and became a columnist at The Times at 18. She has been named Columnist of the Year six times. She’s also written two volumes of collected journalism, Moranthology and Moranifesto, and a novel, How to Build a Girl, which has been adapted as a movie.
Adam Buxton talks to Jon Ronson (author of ‘So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed’, ‘The Psychopath Test’, ‘The Men Who Stare At Goats’ etc. about dealing with criticism, Woody Allen, neuroses, podcasts and the reaction to his latest book. At the end of the podcast Adam also unveils his brand new song about James Bond, which may or may not be considered unnecessary overkill…
Ep 28 is dedicated to one of our favourite feminists, the inimitable Caitlin Moran. She talks to Una Mullally about her new book Moranifesto, abortion rights, Hilary Clinton, Donald Trump, sex work and what it’s like to be ‘35 per cent famous’.
