In this episode I am speaking with Peguy Kato who devastatingly lost her son in an incident where he was stabbed 11 times. Peguy has made it her mission to provide support to families who have gone through similar experiences in honor of her son. This led to her setting up the All Champions charity which aims to prevent and protect people of all ages from knife and other serious youth violence by working towards the rehabilitation of young people engaged in knife crime and other serious youth violence. It also supports the victims of these crimes and people who may be at risk of engaging with it.Links:https://allchampioncharity.org/Support the show (https://paypal.me/secondchancepodcast?locale.x=en_GB)

This year marks 60 years since the building of the Berlin Wall, appearing practically overnight on the 12th -13th of August 1961. It separated families, friends, lovers and even parents from their babies. The wall wouldn't come down for another 28 years, and during that time, at least 140 people would die trying to flee from East to West - but many more succeeded. Tunnel 29 tells the incredible true story of a group of university students who dug a tunnel right under the feet of Berlin Wall border guards, to help a group of friends and family and strangers escape. Journalist Helena Merriman first told the story in the hit BBC podcast Tunnel 29 and has now published a book called Tunnel 29: Love, Espionage and Betrayal: the True Story of an Extraordinary Escape Beneath the Berlin Wall. Named for the number of escapees they helped, it was the biggest and most audacious escape mission since the erection of the wall the year before. Kathryn speaks to Helena Merriman about the incredible heroism of a group of ordinary students.

In our final discussion to mark our 75th anniversary we look at the issue of equal pay. This was identified as the area women most want to see change in their daily lives and 70% of those asked said they had experienced inequality in this area. Emma Barnett talks to Baroness Kishwer Falkner who's head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission which regulates the Equality Act and also to Emma Satyamurti a lawyer leading a group action for equal pay by female staff working in Morrisons. Dame Eileen Atkins joins Emma to talk about the journey from being Tottenham's answer to Shirley Temple to hugely respected actor for stage, screen and TV. Her memoir is called 'Will She Do?' Today MPs are going to debate new government plans that would mean members who are suspended for sexual harassment or bullying could face a by-election. Labour want the measure to apply retrospectively - so that it would include the Conservative MP Rob Roberts who was suspended from Parliament for six weeks in May after an independent panel found he had sexually harassed a former employee. He did not face a petition to trigger a by-election due to a loophole in parliamentary procedure - because the panel that handed down his suspension doesn't have those powers. BBC political correspondent, Chris Mason, explains. Composer Charlotte Bray has composed new song cycle called Crossing Faultlines. Believed to be the first of its kind to address the topic of women in the workplace, the song cycle explores themes of mentorship, discrimination and ambition. The piece was commissioned as part of a new recital programme dream.risk.sing: elevating women's voices, an initiative conceived to express women's stories through song. Emma is joined by Charlotte Bray, Samantha Crawford and Lana Bode.

#191 This week, my wonderful guest is Dr. David Hamilton. David is a writer, speaker, columnist, and scientist. Our conversation today revolves around David's newest book, Why Woo-Woo Works. In his book, David provides scientific explanations to all the “woo woo” things we encounter in our lives. His goal with the book is to not only help practitioners of anything woo woo to have more faith in themselves, but to also educate sceptics and help them understand these things. We talk about the definition of woo woo, how crystals actually work, the placebo effect, and how our perception and way of thinking actually affects our reality. If you're someone who may be feeling stuck in their current trajectory and wish to lead more from the heart, then this is definitely the episode for you. "The world that you experience, is consistent with your thinking and what you believe. It's not that you're actually physically changing things, but you're literally flicking to a world that's entirely consistent with what you've just thought.” About David: David Hamilton is a writer, columnist, speaker & kindness scientist. After completing his PhD in organic chemistry, he worked in R&D in the pharmaceutical industry, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, and how some people's conditions would improve because they believed a placebo was a real drug, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their mental and physical health. He is now author of 11 books, including the Amazon bestseller, 'The Five Side Effects of Kindness'. He's also a columnist, the 'Kindness Tsar' for Psychologies Magazine, and has been a featured guest on Channel 4's, 'Sunday Brunch Live' in the UK and CBS Sunday Morning in the USA, as well as on several BBC radio shows and podcasts around the world. David is also the honorary scientific advisor for the charity, 52 Lives. He's an advocate for kindness and work passionately to inspire a kinder world.

She was born and raised in a traditional Indian family, and didn't become a coach until she found herself a single mum and a divorcee, the other side of an arranged marriage. Her experiences led her to be more open with her friends and they started coming to her for advice. She could see there was an opportunity to help more people talk safely and freely about sex. Now she aids lots of women - and men - find their way to being happier and more knowledgable in their intimate lives. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

When Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross failed to reach their celebrity guest, 78 year-old ‘Fawlty Towers' star Andrew Sachs, they instead left him a series of answerphone messages, joking about sexual encounters with Sachs's granddaughter, Georgina Baillie.

En los últimos años hemos sabido más de Bob Geldof por sus iniciativas solidarias que por su música. Pero hace unos meses sacó nuevo disco con su banda de siempre, los Boomtown Rats, y para hablar de ese trabajo estaba invitado esta semana a un programa de la BBC. Cuando la presentadora sólo puso unos segundos de una de sus canciones, porque “la letra no era apropiada”, Sir Bob Geldof saltó. ¿Censura?Hablando de censura, el primer trabajo estable que tuvo el artista al que hoy versiona el amigo de Pino fue en el Comité de Censura del Cine de Sao Paulo. Después Vinicius de Moraes inició su carrera como diplomático de la que fue expulsado por la dictadura militar, a la que no le gustaba que fuera al mismo tiempo “diplomático y sambista”, según se leía en los informes elaborados por el espionaje brasileño. Quizá sin esa expulsión nos habríamos perdido un disco como La Fusa, imprescindible... pero la expulsión fue injusta y años después el gobierno de Brasil reconoció su despido improcedente, le nombró embajador a título póstumo y le otorgó la Cruz al Mérito Cultural.El músico que protagoniza la noticia de la semana a la que ponemos música tiene también su Cruz al Mérito Civil, otorgada por el Rey Felipe en reconocimiento a su "labor inestimable" desarrollada "por todo el mundo" para promocionar "la música celta”. Paddy Moloney, líder y fundador de los Chieftains, ha muerto esta semana. Cerramos la sección escuchando su colaboración en el Ommadawn con Mike Oldfield, una de las debilidades de Pino.

Why We Should Never Settle For "Mr. Unavailable's" With Baggage Reclaim Founder, Author, And Podcaster Natalie Lue

Today, we have the MOST special guest—this woman is my HERO, and her books changed my life. Her name is Natalie Lue; she's a podcaster, speaker, artist, and writer of well-known books such as Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl, a book that means so much to me I can basically recite it. Like so many women, Natalie had a litany of problems that included bad boundaries, toxic relationships, and a penchant for emotionally unavailable men. Until everything changed in 2005, when a crippling disease and the breakup from a barely-there guy triggered an awakening, igniting the desire to fight back. She wrote down her experiences and documented her journey, which led to self-publishing five best-selling books and creating Baggage Reclaim, including online courses, over 16,000 blog entries, and a podcast that has helped millions of women become "reclaimers" in over 140 countries. Through it all, her mission remains the same: if she can help even one person avoid what she went through and support others who have struggled with abandonment, rejection, trauma, people-pleasing, emotional unavailability, and feeling "not good enough," she's making the world a better place. Natalie Lue is a thought leader in relationships. Her no-nonsense, compassionate, and humorous take has garnered a following in over 140 countries, and she's been featured in The New York Times, NPR, and the BBC, to name a few. She's the author of Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl, The No Contact Rule, The Dreamer and Fantasy Relationship and Love, Care, Trust & Respect, which has sold 140K+ copies, and her podcast, The Baggage Reclaim Sessions, has over 2 million downloads. Harper Horizon is publishing her next book, The Joy of Saying No, in October 2022. Aside from her self-help blog, Baggage Reclaim, she is also the founder of the kids' lifestyle blog Bambino Goodies. Born in England, raised in Dublin, Ireland, she's based in South East London with her husband, two daughters, and crazy cockerpoo. She left advertising to become a full-time blogger for the past 13.5 years. She's the former relationship columnist for In The Moment Magazine and has spoken at numerous conferences and given talks at companies including Amazon and InTouch in the U.S. Her current work centers around people-pleasing, boundaries, mindfulness, and creativity. Kerry Brett and Natalie Lue cover a lot of ground. In my opinion, Natalie is a brilliant writer who channeled this epic book and had the unique and perfect skill set to put it all together. If you struggle to date or think something is wrong with you, unworthy or not good enough, this episode will be a game-changer. Topics include:Why Natalie has a knack for calling a spade a spade, tune into why she's always 100 percent right when it comes to problems within relationships.You're not crazy or losing your mind, why it's crazy-making dealing with a "Mr. Unavailable".Why Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl is the the gift that keeps on giving.Why Natalie's books speak to the collective pain women, go through.Why women are socialized and conditioned to get the short end of the stick when it comes to toxic relationships.Why this is not the "Last Chance Saloon" and why we should never settle!What a relationship looks like with a "Mr. Unavailable", spoiler alert it's not pretty and never ends well. EVER!Why "Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl" was survival for me because society doesn't talk about these things or these types of men who cause all this distribution, havoc, and pain.The definition of "Future Faking" – when someone fakes a future to get what they want in the present.What "Fast Forwarding" is and why things start intense and moments later end up in smokes.Why "Mr. Unavailable's" use "blowing hot or cold" to manage down expectations and control the narrative.What is an "Overlapper" and why they justified their awful actions to a "slip and fa

We had the pleasure of interviewing SIX60 over Zoom video! New Zealand pop/rock icons SIX60 have been making headlines across the globe, thanks to the joyous, COVID-free concerts they have been performing to crowds of more than 20,000 people at a time. They are the biggest band in New Zealand history, and arguably the most dominant band in a single territory ever, representing more than 15% of all music listened to in their home country. Formed in 2008, the band has released four number one albums and 44 platinum singles, including their most recent single, “All She Wrote,” which shot to the top of the charts upon its release.Thanks to New Zealand's success with COVID, SIX60 was able to continue to tour throughout the pandemic, which made them "the planet's biggest touring band," according to NME, selling more tickets than the rest of the world combined. Complex, The Guardian, and CNN all highlighted their impressive touring accomplishments, with the BBC reporting that “the success of their shows will give hope to musicians around the world that concerts will resume one day.”Now, on the heels of a record shattering year, SIX60 have announced their arrival to the US with their first-ever performances in the country, stopping at two iconic halls: LA's The Fonda Theatre on Saturday, October 9th, and NYC's Webster Hall on Thursday, October 14th. The concerts will continue the band's streak of historic firsts, which included the first-ever musical performance at New Zealand's national stadium Eden Park – the biggest live show in the world at the time, performed in front of 50k fans - and an eleven-date European tour, which included their biggest show outside of their native New Zealand at the iconic London venue, Alexandra Palace.“It's really exciting to be playing our first headline shows in the states,” SIX60 said. “When the pandemic hit, it was hard to imagine it ever happening. We just played Bottle Rock and Berkley this weekend, and the crowd response has been incredible. It seems like the crowds are really happy to be back together and we can't wait to give them a night to remember.”SIX60's live shows have garnered the attention of media across the world. ITV's Piers Morgan dubbed them “the hottest band in the world right now” during his interview with lead singer Matiu Walters, and the BBC called the shows “just unimaginable right now.” The band's performance at Eden Park was highlighted by one-off special appearances by players of the All Blacks rugby team, New Zealand's National Naval band, a flyover of Royal New Zealand Air Force jets, as well as traditional Maori Kapa Haka performers, who joined the band on stage to see out the night with their hit ‘Don't Forget Your Roots' (Kia Mau Ki Tō Ūkaipō). The concert was streamed by millions of fans across 30 countries, thanks to a trailblazing partnership with the leading streaming platform Veeps, and it was also the first-ever concert to be streamed live via TikTok.We want to hear from you!
