Hello! And welcome to ANYONE F'COFFEE - A NEW Women's Health Podcast and a groovy PULSE AWARD funded must-listen-to pod - gently nurtured into this world by help from those amazing folks at The British Podcast Awards and The Wellcome Trust.

Thanks for that folks!

This week's episode - and they are coming out weekly - focuses on Endometriosis. A condition we explore through the real life experience of real life Kirstin Stansfield....teacher, medieval historian, amdram pal and friend of mine.

We explore in this episode what it is, how she was treated, how she felt as she went along and why it was so hard to get diagnosed. After the interview with Kirstin is a fun segment of audio fiction (written by me) exploring the relationship of 5 characters with the conditions this podcast explores, all connecting over a cuppa, and finally sharing elements of their personal journeys. This is part verbatim and part theatricalised and I hope it makes you love these people and characters as much as I do! The last part of each episode will be an interview with a person in the know - either a medical professional or someone working closely with folks with the condition.
If you suffer from the kind of pain FREYA does and haven't yet sought help, please find info and where to go for help in the shownotes links. Please be kind to yourself x

Today we explore How and where folks with this condition (or suspecting they have it) can find help and information....and today we have help from THE LOVELY Faye Farthing of Endometriosis-uk.

HERE is a link to the CAST BIOGS, allll references…

Music was by Matt Hutt and Zac Lemon - love it! Isn't it groovy...?
CAST - Diane Alexander, Lara Parker, Lucy Shirley, Sarah Golding, Fiona Thraille and introducing KIRSTIN STANSFIELD. Thank you Kirstin for sharing so much of your personal experience and thoughts, and to all my cast - BLOOMIN' LOVE YA!

The Audio fiction segment was recorded in the Mysterious Movies Podcast and film studios in SEER GREEN, BUCKS. Please do contact Celine@mysteriousmovies.com for info and bookings! They are truly lovely - and we could NOT have done the day without the amazing engineering of RAPHAEL DARLEY in the session,  who manoeuvred mics and made it a very cool and easy experience to get it alllll done! Thanks RAPH!

Written Directed Produced and Edited by Sarah Golding. I even drove the car.

Executive Producer - Fiona Thraille

Very personal and at times shocking stories of what these women have gone through and have to live with. Can be difficult to listen to but Sarah does a great job of gently moving through the discussion to get to the other side. In addition to one to one discussions with those involved, Sarah includes interviews with medical professionals and links to help. In addition, the interviews have been adapted into audio drama stories which could easily be their own show.
Wash away all preconceptions as to how a dedicated women's heath podcast should sound, and get this one in your ears! Seriously, this surprising production brings to you, an informative magazine show, witty and brilliantly performed audio drama, and accessible help-desk. All beautifully put together in a delightfully “Quirky” way. It's a unique, respectful, informative blend of styles that flows so well together. Respect for all involved.
