The Commonwealth Games in Birmingham are underway and for the first time in a major multi-sport event, more medals will be awarded to women than men, with the medal programme confirming a total of 136 events for women compared to 134 for men. Jessica speaks to BBC Sports presenter Clare Balding as well as the first ever female Chef de Mission for Team Scotland, who for the first time have more women competing in their team than men. Six weeks after pop star Lizzo changed the lyrics of her song because it contained an ableist slur, Beyonce has been criticised for using the same term. In her new song ‘Heated', which is co-written by hiphop star Drake, the slur is used twice. In a statement, Beyonce said the term wasn't used intentionally in a harmful way, and will be replaced. Hannah Diviney is a writer and Disability Activist from Sydney, who went viral for calling out both Lizzo and Beyonce. The impact of body image on mental and physical health is "wide-reaching" according to a new wide-ranging report out today by the Health and Social Care Committee which calls for e.g. for the Government to introduce a law so "commercial images" which feature bodies which have been doctored in any way - including changing body proportions or skin tone - are legally required to carry a logo to let viewers know they have been digitally altered. And the Government to speed up the introduction of a promised licensing regime for non-surgical cosmetic procedures to prevent vulnerable people being exploited. Jessica hears from Jeremy Hunt is Chair of the Committee, and Dawn Steele, a patient trustee to the board of the Joint Council For Cosmetic Practitioners. Penelope Campling is a psychiatrist and psychotherapist. Over the course of her 40-year career, she has seen many changes in the way we treat serious mental illness. She spent twenty years running the NHS personality disorder unit in Leicester. She has now retired from the NHS, still practising as a psychotherapist, and has just published her second book, Don't Turn Away: Stories of Troubled Minds in Fractured Times.

Chemmy Alcott is Britain's most successful female skier, having competed at 4 winter Olympics and won a World Cup event. She also presents the BBC's Ski Sunday programme and is part of the team for the BBC's winter Olympics coverage. As a skier, Chemmy might seem a strange guest for a triathlon-based podcast. However Chemmy oozes passion and energy and has so many lessons to share from sport. So if you need a confidence boost for a race coming up, or if you're feeling a bit 'meh' because you're injured, or if you're just finding the news too depressing, then listen to this, you won't regret it. You'll hear: 08:00 Chemmy's work with BBC Sport during the Olympics 'it's such an honour and it's like working on ski sunday on steroids.' What it's like working with BBC Sport presenter Clare Balding. 'She really is an empowering mentor to have and she has an incredible knowledge and she never steps on the toes of others, she makes everyone else be at their best.' 13:00 We talk about why it was okay talking about failing and losing. When you fail you have a massive opportunity to learn from that. I'm mentally stronger because I am honest about why I failed. 15:30 Pressure, expectation, underperforming and the danger of holding back. Can you be confident enough to risk it all? 18:00 Confidence on and off the skis. I used to struggle a lot and when I was coming back from injury, I pretended I was Lindsey Vonn. Pretending to be someone else is a really easy technique to get you out of that fear bubble and then you can be yourself. 27:40 Chemmy talks about how she manages to mix work and family. 'I need to work but when I come back to them, I'm able to be very present. But it is a revolution.' 29:00 Some of the messages Chemmy tries to get across to the athletes she coaches. It's confidence! And we do a simple activity every night to help with that. I want to use sport for lifeskill gains. 31:00 Chemmy's thoughts for those who have a lack of confidence, whether ahead of a race or because of fear. "You have to be honest and then you have to take those negative feelings, use those feelings and turn them into a strong power." You have a choice, it's within you. Do you let it stop you or do you use it to inspire you to be better' 37:00 Is Chemmy always 'on it?' I think it must annoying for those around me. 'The vivaciousness and gung-ho I have goes back to when my mum died and it was a complete shock and now I think you don't know when it's all over' 43:00 We talk about life without ski and climate change. 46:00 Some brilliant advice when it comes to injuries. "It is challenging and people react in different ways. You have to realistic and present every day. You can't let that bitterness not drive you. You can use it in a positive way. 49:00 Channelling nerves and fears when you're about to start a race. "This changed throughout my career a the beginning I always used to try too hard but that was a massive block because I would over-try. Then I tried to be loose and I would say to myself 'loose as a goose and I used to try and take my brain out and put it into my feet so it could feel the run.' 'I looked quite unprofessional in the start gates because I used to be juggling, to switch my brain off. But I needed to not care and trust myself. 52:00 We talk about why Chemmy is so passionate about championing other females. "My mum always used to tell me to go into a room and fine a woman who inspires you and go and talk to them. Have the confidence to go and talk to them, have a bit of them and make yourself better."

The Mid•Point with Gabby Logan

The daughter of a top horse trainer, and herself a champion jockey, Clare Balding OBE made the leap into broadcasting as the BBC's racing specialist. Since then though, she's reported on everything, from the Olympic Games and Wimbledon to Royal Weddings and Crufts. But for a decade she was also hiding her sexuality and looked to her father for approval. Now, at 50, and many many accolades later, Clare finds motivation from within and her wife Alice, who's always there to lend a hand. Clare is unceasingly playful and energised, but is also afraid of purchasing tampons from the shop - so how does she feel about having her first hot flush? Gabby invites her to talk about menopause, whilst hearing an inspiring story from Carolyn Harris, the MP who's cross party bill has taken the subject all the way to Whitehall - and won.

This episode features Michael Johnson, Clare Balding, Andrew Parsons, Bebe Vio, Sarah Hirschland, Justin King and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 volunteer, Shigeru Kudo. After such bleak times and such uncertainty we reflect on what hosting the Tokyo Games has achieved. We will explore what is in store for the Paralympic Movement across the next decade and what this can help achieve for the wider 15% of disabled people. Following the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing in early 2022, the Games head to Paris in 2024, Milano Cortina in 2026 and LA in 2028. Will host cities like Paris become better places for disabled people to live in as a result of hosting the Games? Will holding the Games in LA lead to better representation for disabled talent in Hollywood? Will the Paralympic Games help to change attitudes towards disability?  To wrap up the series, Sophie Morgan and Sinéad Burke reflect on what they have learned through the making of this podcast and what this can mean for the future. Hosted by Sophie Morgan and executive produced by Sophie Morgan and Sinéad Burke, Equal Too has been created by Harder Than You Think, the award winning team behind Emmy award winning Netflix documentary Rising Phoenix, and P&G Studios. The podcast aims to continue the conversation that the documentary started.   Equal Too: Achieving Disability Equality is a new special six-part series, featured on Seneca's Conversations on Power and Purpose series, that explores the biggest challenges faced by the disabled community and starts a conversation about what is needed to drive equality.

Sisu- with Clare Balding and Dr Hilary Virtanen

Getting Emotional

Play Episode Listen Later Apr 14, 2021 14:38


Here in Britain, we're known for having a 'stiff upper lip'.But do other countries have an equivalent? Well, Finland certainly does! And they called it 'sisu'. It's about grit, determination, and working toward a goal. It's a willingness to keep on going, even though you might not win the battle you're fighting. Hey, even if you don't win, the victory is in trying. There's no direct translation in English, so I've done my best to dig out the spirit of the word. And I've come to the conclusion it's about being gutsy, showing chutzpah, and just...keeping on. Pure determination through adversity.I've had the best time researching this word, and finding out more about a country I (embarrassingly) knew very little about. My research took me to the Finlandia University in Michigan, where I found a Professor of Finnish and Nordic Studies- Dr Hilary Virtanen (@HilaryVirtanen on twitter). Not only did she give me more info on sisu, she told me about times she, or students on her campus, have felt it too. After speaking to her I got a real sense that sisu, and the Finnish community she works with, are something pretty special. I also decided to ask around, and see if anyone else had felt this determination through adversity. And during a chat with Clare Balding about her new children's book, 'Fall Off, Get Back On, Keep Going', I realised this feeling extends to kids as well as adults. Her book is about giving kids the skills and belief they need to face struggles in life, and it's an absolute winner- I highly recommend it! And she very kindly told me about a very candid story from her own past- one that I'd never heard before- as an example of a time she's had to work through. Sisu was quite the most intriguing word I've come across in a long time, and it gave me a chance to indulge my love of history too. If anything, making this podcast was quite the opposite of sisu- it was a joy to make! Hopefully you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed putting it together. And next time you find yourself going through something a little tough- dig deep, and you might find some sisu to help you through. Oh, if you want to say hi, I'm on twitter, @GetEmotionalPod.

Digging into her father's side of the family takes Clare to New Jersey and New York, where she uncovers an extraordinary dynasty and American roots stretching back generations.

How many times have you been out for a walk and spotted intriguing shapes in the landscape?

Mary-Ann Ochota is an anthropologist who writes about these curious archaeological forms and how to understand them. In her book, Hidden Histories, she shows how anyone can become a landscape detective, and start to read the history of the countryside from the clues around them. On today’s Ramblings she takes Clare Balding for a walk around the Pegsdon Hills on the Hertfordshire-Bedfordshire border, and through 6000 years of British history.

Simon Gudgeon is one of our leading sculptors, but he didn't practice his art until his mid 40s. He'd worked as a solicitor, a photographer, and a landscape gardener before, one day, picking up a lump of clay to see what he could create. It wasn't long before he knew that sculpting was all he wanted to do. His distinctive creations, often inspired by the natural world, are showcased at his own venture, Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorset. Set in 26 acres and featuring over 40 lake and riverside works of art, establishing Sculpture by the Lakes proved a financially risky labour of love. Simon tells his story to Clare Balding on a walk from the historic St. Nicholas Church in Moreton, to his home at the sculpture park in Pallington, Dorset.
