Excited to have joined Everybody Media as a podcaster in their Collective! The London-based media company was founded by Naomi Mellor to produce and support podcasts that raise the voices of women and non-binary podcasters. The company partners podcasting giants like Wondery and is home to the annual International Women’s Podcast Awards. Being nominated for ‘Moment of Comedy Gold‘ by the IWPA in 2022 was one of the highlights of my year and I can’t wait to collaborate with them in 2023! Sharp Pains has just been uploaded to their site! You can find it and explore others here!
Clearing Away the Cobwebbys
Thank you to the lovely people who run the Webby Awards for encouraging me (quite persistently, as the first couple of times they contacted me I just assumed it was a joke) to enter Bake Fail / Sharp Pains for their 2023 awards and offering me a scholarship to do so! Nominees are announced in April. I am sure I have no chance but imagining them listening to one of my obscure little podcasts was reward enough!
Bald Spot at the FCC!
Catch me performing Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow from Sharp Pains live at the Hong Kong Int Lit Fest launch of Imprint 21 at the FCC March 9! Thanks to editor Carol Dyer for inviting me to fill a bald spot. Join me and the women with WiPS from 7-10pm for an evening of laughter and frivolity!
Living the Dream
My latest humour column for RTHK Radio 3 just got tutted up on VYP! It features a funny turn by my partner in crime Philippe Joly. This one’s the stuff of nightmares and called Dream On…

Things To Do with Food from The Rotting Tray
Ever wondered what to do with food from the rotting tray besides waiting for it to slowly decompose before eventually throwing it away? Home Spa has the answer! It has just gone live on VYP! And by “just”, I mean 3-4 weeks ago. (Sorry.)

Sharp Pains Shortlisted for 2022 NY Radio Award!
My humour column Sharp Pains was shortlisted by the 2022 New York Festivals Radio Awards in the Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program category… on April Fool’s Day… and being a fool (in any month) I totally missed it!!! It didn’t win (obvs) but being a humble 10 min monthly slot, I wasn’t even sure it qualified. The best I’d hoped for was that it might be shortlisted if the judges were feeling particularly generous/ concussed/ drunk – and luckily for me they were all of these things! The Bake Fail episode was also an Official Select of the 2022 On Air Fest in New York. I ❤️ NY!
