Episode notes

Nick and Angela welcome a bestselling author and journalist to DISH HQ.

Caitlin Moran grew up in Wolverhampton in a family of eight kids and spent most of her time reading books at the local library instead of attending school. Unsurprisingly, Caitlin had written her first novel by the time she was 13. She  moved to London at 16 and began writing for Melody Maker where she met her husband, Pete Paphides. Caitlin has written several bestselling books, including How to be a Woman and How to Build a Girl and has been writing for the Times about feminism, politics, culture and her personal life since 1992. Her new book What About Men is out now.

Angela prepares a tasty egg & dill salad with smoked mackerel and a rösti for Caitlin, while Nick pours a delicious Blueprint Viña Taboexa Albariño. Our trio dive straight into conversation, discussing topics like Caitlin’s builder chat, how to make a good rösti and what is so special about wind turbines. 

Just so you know, our podcast might contain the occasional mild swear word or adult theme.
