Ellie Gibson is a veteran video games journalist and stand-up comedian, she is also co-host of Scummy Mummies Podcast.
Our guest for this episode is the amazing actor Tanya Moodie! She tells us about her starring role in the hit sitcom Motherland, and that time she was in Star Wars. We discuss Tanya's experience of being a black mum, and why it's important to find your tribe. She gives us some tips on surviving the transition to secondary school, and Helen tells the worst celebrity anecdote of all time. Things get pretty deep as we talk about everything from Buddhism and the Black Lives Matter movement to seeing the potential in Donald Trump. But as always, we wind up with some brilliantly daft Scummy Mummy Confessions. **WE HAVE A SHOP!** Visit scummymummiesshop.com for our ace t-shirts, signature Wine Mugs, and Mum Island beach towels!

JUST THE TWO OF US! For only the fourth time in Scummy Mummies history, there is no guest for this episode - it’s just us dickheads. We’re meeting up in our cosy bubble to share some personal news, and to talk about how we’ve found lockdown. We share our coping strategies, and what we do on the days we’re really not coping very well at all, actually. Find out how we’re getting on with homeschooling, hear about the newest member of Helen’s family, and learn what Ellie's been doing beside her parents' bins.The podcast Helen recommends is the excellent Divorce Club. The terms Ellie can't remember that Brené Brown uses are over- and under-functioning, and you can hear her explain them in a much more articulate way on the Unlocking Us podcast. This podcast is brought to you in partnership with @PayPalUK. These are tricky times, with lots to juggle, but PayPal makes life a bit easier - whether you're shopping online or sending someone you appreciate a little treat.
