This Tuesday, Sophie and I are trying out a slightly different format for Tea & Tattle, with an extended Culture Corner. Sophie tells me how much she's enjoying the TV show Shetland, and I share more about my recent trip to Cornwall, visiting the Virginia Woolf exhibition at Tate St Ives and reading Daphne du Maurier's The House on the Strand.
For our main discussion topic, we exchange our opinions on 'mansplaining,' which was recently entered into the Oxford English Dictionary.
Listen to hear our experiences of mansplaining and our recent cultural favourites.
