Sarah Millican – that’s right, the boss herself! – gets involved in this episode to talk about her new Radio 4 panel show, Elephant In The Room, which starts on Thursday 27 June. Author Dina Nayeri joins Jen and Mick to discuss how we’re treating those seeking refuge in our country, what we can do better, Dina’s own story and her new book, The Ungrateful Refugee. In JOTB, Jen catches up with gold-medal owning Olympian rower Katherine Grainger to talk what’s what in women’s sport right now, and Dunleavy Does Dystopia goes back in time to 1984’s Nineteen Eighty-Four/looks outside for a bit. And in the Bush Telegraph, there’s a cracking list of names you can call Farage, and a cupboard’s worth of soiled jizz-flannels in Sexism of the Week.
