Helen Thorn is a stand-up comedian and co-host of Scummy Mummies Podcast.
Our guest for this episode is creative entrepreneur, activist, writer and all-round queen, Jade Sullivan! We talk about Jade's role in the Black Lives Matter movement, and the brilliant piece she wrote about why we must speak up. You can read the full article at motherpukka.co.uk. Jade talks about why she wants to own the title of Angry Black Woman, and why it's important to have uncomfortable conversations. We also talk about her personal experience of the UK's maternity and mental health services. You can follow Jade on Instagram @thesullivanslondon.

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.

How can we help our children handle their worries? What's the best way to deal with bullying? Is it realistic to want kids to be happy all the time? Answering all these questions and more is the brilliant Dr Angharad Rudkin! She tells us about her work as a child psychologist, and how having kids herself changed the way she deals with parents. We find out why it's important to think about our core values, and how to help children manage their friendships. Plus, we discover what to do if your child's the one doing the bullying, and are relieved to learn not even child psychologists' kids eat their vegetables.  Find Your Girl Squad, the book Dr Angharad co-wrote with Ruth Fitzgerald, is out now. Her other books, What's My Child Thinking? and What's My Teenager Thinking? are also available now.  We're on Twitter (@scummymummies), Instagram, and Facebook.

Joining me on the podcast this week is the brilliant Melissa Thompson. Melissa talks openly about racism and growing up in Dorset and Suffolk and how much we have still to do. We then go onto chat about her coming out and being a lesbian mother and how gay women are represented by the media. And then it is time for food chat and how we think about eating and our relationship with our bodies.Melissa has the most delicious food account on Instagram, follow her @fowlmouthsfood.We recorded this back before lockdown in her magnificent kitchen and she cooked me an amazing breakfast.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
