About This List

Here are the episodes chosen by Sue Stockdale for this week's theme, *Real Role Models.*
  1. From India to Mars, how a leap of faith became a journey into space. Kalki meets rocket scientist BP Dakshayani, from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), who programmed a satellite on its mission to the red planet. #MyIndianLife
  2. Sue Stockdale left school at 16 to join British Gas, and quickly climbed her way upwards – whilst also representing Scotland in athletics. An expedition to Kenya with Operation Rayleigh then proved a tipping point which led to further adventures, such as skiing to the North Pole and competing in Channel 4's Superhuman contest. These rich experiences – as well as building and then selling her own business – enable her to help people achieve more than they think they are capable. So strap on your boots and eat your greens - we're going on an adventure. Interviewed by Fraser Allen at London Scottish House in Westminster.
  3. <p>Ping Coombes first rose to fame when she won Masterchef UK back in 2014, flooring the judges with her Malaysian flavours and techniques, and winning the finale with Malaysia&#39;s national dish of nasi lemak. Since then, she&#39;s written a cookbook, opened a restaurant in London, ran dozens of supper clubs, and became a kick-ass mom to two daughters. We speak to her about her kooky supper club dishes, motherhood, and the future of Malaysian food.</p>
  4. What if farming + family does not equal happiness? Loshni Manikam, leadership coach and winner of Fonterra Dairy Woman of the Year in 2018 talks to Sue Stockdale about how she helps women to thrive in New Zealand's dairy industry.
  5. Kirsty Young's castaway is Mary Portas. She's made an art-form out of turning heads, and her galleries have been the enormous plate-glass windows of Harrods, Topshop and Harvey Nichols. These days she brings retail therapy to small traders, helping them to hold their own against the high street's big names. Record: Casta Diva from Norma Book: The works of Rumi, Persian poet and philosopher Luxury: 'A set of different fragrances from the people I love'.
