POOF! Blown away in a hurricane to be shortlisted for ‘Moment of Comedy Gold‘ by the International Women’s Podcast Awards for my cheeky recipe for disaster, Bake Fail! I am honoured to be in a category with such funny and inspiring women and non binary podcasters! The awards take place at The Conduit in Covent Garden, London, Sept 29. Sadly, I won’t be able to attend in person but I look forward to setting my alarm for 4am (no, really!) to watch on Zoom!
Thanks to Philippe Joly for shooting my hilarious (well, we found it hilarious) ‘acceptance speech’ (a video that will never be played as it requires winning!!!) Thank you soooooooooo much to the IWPA judges and the brilliant Skylark Collective!
Ever wondered what to do with food from the rotting tray besides waiting for it to slowly decompose before eventually throwing it away? Home Spahas the answer! It has just gone live on VYP! And by “just”, I mean 3-4 weeks ago.
My smoke alarm hasn’t stopped ringing this week! Thanks to the On Air Festival making it one of their Official Selects and support from the Women with WiPS, Bake Fail is the episode of my saucy humor column for RTHK Radio 3 that refuses to burn out. My culinary cautionary tale will be published in the ‘Foodie’ section of the South China Morning Post‘s Post Magazine April 3rd! Please check it out as I doubt I will have another opportunity to mention myself in the same sentence as ‘Foodie’.
Sharp Pains is taking a short sabbatical because my legendary partner in crime Noreen Mir is having a baby!!! You’d think she’d be put off extending her family by my columns but no, she told me she found them an aphrodisiac. The columns are now being repurposed as traditional Chinese medicine to beat Covid and boost population growth. But don’t worry – Sharp Pains will be back on the air before you’ve had time to notice it’s missing! (And my absurdist spinoff Meet the New Parents could even be out sooner than that!!)
Thanks to theWomen with Whips, sorry WiPS, for giving me a cracking welcome to the Women in Publishing Society and plugging my writing, bake fails, and other obvious shortcomings on their Woman at Work platform! Can’t wait to whip up a frenzy of creative collaborations with these crazy, inspiring women! Just putting the final spit and polish (so far, just spit) on my submissions for this year’s Imprint anthology, Imprint 21, which will hopefully be launched (Covidy wavey things permitting) at an event at the FCC in November!
Thanks to the On Air Festivalin Brooklyn, New York, for selecting theBake Failepisode of my screwy humor column forRTHK Radio 3,Sharp Pains, as one of their 2022Official Selects! So happy to have been included in this good vibes festival that emphasizes experimentation, a unique point of view, and explores storytelling and creativity in sound!✨
