AIBU? podcast episode 11: the one with Taylor Glenn
Work yourself up into a righteous rage with episode 11 of our AIBU? podcast, hosted by Lucy Porter and Aasmah Mir. This time, we discuss the hilarious failings of the most unassertive among us and mull over a massive battered cod.
In episode 11, Lucy and Aasmah consider the words that make you want to plunge your head into a bucket, including classics such as the widely-loathed 'gusset' (sorry). They don't stop there, though, going on to inadvertently start a class war over the word 'supper' – let’s just say that if you're happily planning your holibobs with your hubby, you're safe to skip ahead.
We also sympathise with Mumsnet users’ tales of extreme unassertiveness, from the woman who walked away from the chippy with a 'massive battered cod' she didn't want, to the poor unfortunate who paid £18 for a small bag of cherries rather than say anything at the checkout, and not forgetting the box-fit enthusiast who went to a yoga class by mistake and found herself unable to leave because 'the instructor saw me and pointed at a mat'.
A-list Adjudicator Taylor Glenn shares her strong feelings about school sports days and confirms that it is not unreasonable to have 31,268 unread emails (this is Lucy’s actual tally), but it IS unreasonable to have a fifth child. Hey, we don't make the rules.
