Episode notes

In a live episode recorded at the London Podcast Festival, we chat to some of the women behind two big titles on the small screen: Back To Life and Sex Education. First up, creator and star of Back To Life Daisy Haggard chats to Anna about her darkly comic BBC drama, as the show’s second series hits our screens. From teenage fashion and tamagotchis to social attitudes to female criminals, they discuss the stories behind the series. Plus, she shares her directorial daydreams of helming a feminist Jaws... Next, Chinenye Ezeudu joins us to talk about her role in the Netflix smash Sex Education. She hints at what’s to come for her character Viv in the forthcoming series 3, and gives a glimpse into her own future acting and writing projects. Finally, Chinenye’s collaborator and director of Sex Education series 2 Alice Seabright takes to the stage to talk about her work on the show. We hear about her fab feminist short films and upcoming TV series Chloe -- plus she tells us about her experience of working with top intimacy coordinator Ita O’Brien, and what slug sex has got to do with shooting an intimate scene… All three of our guests give us some stellar watchlist recommendations, and shoutout the women in the industry who have inspired them. Plus, our guests tackle some fascinating questions in a Q&A with our live audience.
