Podcaster and writer Tolly Shoneye talks about it with Amanda who's dating now. “To say that humans have overthought sex is something of an understatement.” That's according to Dr Kate Lister, a university lecturer who set up the Whore of Yore project in 2015. It tried to start a conversation about the history of sex.

Sexual violence in literature: do we need to find the right language to talk about it properly?

Professor Rebecca Bullard and crime writer, Val McDermid join me to discuss. Were you a teenager in the 90s? Went to raves and house parties?
