Casting Pods Lesbian Mother Writing Knitting Life

Josie Henley-Einion

Lesbian mother, writer and internet geek, Josie Henley-Einion talks about life, the universe and everything. An audio blog which leads to a publishing contract. Some of the episodes have explicit content. Note, although I have added ‘knitting’ to the title of the podcast, I have only been talking about knitting since around episode 18, although I’ve been knitting since I was tiny. So if you’re looking particularly for knitting content, no need to listen to the archive, but if you want some interesting and literary content to listen to *while* you’re knitting then go ahead and download the archive!

Top 10 Casting Pods Lesbian Mother Writing Knitting Life Episodes

Best episodes ranked by Goodpods Users most listened

A bumper episode to compensate for the long gap between episodes! This show is explicit (if you hadn’t already worked that out by the title). In the first part I talk about polyamory and play an edited clip of myself on local radio discussing infidelity, where I mention poly and defend it to the best of my ability, given that I’d only been officially poly for about a week at that point and had just ‘come out’ on facebook that morning. I read out some extracts from The Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy, and discuss some of the points raised in terms of my own experience and beliefs. Other books recommended are Opening Up by Tristan Taormino and Sex at Dawn by Christopher Ryan and Cecilda Jetha. And I promised a link to the Wikipedia page for polyamory as a first port of call. In the second part I talk about stand up comedy, play an unedited clip of myself performing and give a critique afterwards of where I think I did well or didn’t do so well. This performance is also available in edited format as two youtube videos on the Casting Pods channel. The first one is called Lesbian Pussies and the second is Gay Porn. I’m probably quite hard on myself about where I went wrong, but would welcome any feedback from anyone who agrees or disagrees with my critique or with their own experiences of stand up. In the third part I talk about knitting, and this bit isn’t explicit – apart from the mention of knitted boobs if you have an aversion to mentions of female body parts.
