Stylist Magazine called Private Parts “one of the top ten non-fiction books of 2019” and comedian Joe Lycett professes the book is “just like its author: funny, brave, charming, honest, reassuring and ultimately brilliant.” This funny, feminist memoir from writer and comedian Eleanor Thom, discusses what it’s like to really live with endometriosis. Demystifying ‘women’s problems’ with humour, honesty and heart. A must read for all; especially those affected by endometriosis.
“Eleanor writes as fearlessly as she has fought this disease; with heart, honesty and a humour that is rarely afforded to subjects as serious as this. Your head will explode with what you'll learn and your heart will explode with the courage of this author. She's truly extraordinary.” - Phoebe Waller-Bridge, actress, writer and creator of Fleabag & Killing Eve.
PODCAST: Partly Political Broadcast
One of the Observer’s Top Ten Political Podcasts 'Partly Political Broadcast' is a (mostly) weekly podcast written and hosted by comedian Tiernan Douieb, who appeared in Aspire Magazine back in April.
Said Tiernan: "'ParPolBro' combines politics and comedy in a way that might seem pointless in today’s farcical day and age, but the difference is, on this podcast the humour is intentional. Every episode has a joke filled look at the previous week’s political news alongside in-depth interviews with political guests who fully explain and discuss current issues.”
