Jen

Here is where you can find out a little bit more about Jen….


favourite food:
hard to pick as I love to eat. Biscuits and Indian food are high up there
favourite colour: the colours in nature make me very happy
favourite book: I’ve been an avid reader my whole life, and read so many things that it’s impossible to choose
favourite film: the best film I saw last year was Mad Max: Fury Road. My favourite so far in 2016 has been Deadpool

If I could be introduced to anyone in the world, who would I choose from the following categories:

actor / actress: it would definitely be an actress, but there are so many amazing and inspirational women out there that I’m having a hard time chosing

musician: Kate Bush

cartoon character: Finn&Jake (package deal!), also the Crystal Gems (package deal!), also Captain Planet & the Planeteers (…you know what’s up, they’re a package deal)

sports person: what is “sport”?

book character: Harry Potter, who would then introduce me to everyone and enroll me at Hogwarts

writer: I met Scarlett Thomas a few years ago and was so overwhelmed that I cried. I would like to do the same to JK Rowling one day (sorry, Jo)

I love spending time doing these things:
1-
hanging out with my husband
2- yoga
3- eating enormous quantities of biscuits without shame

I would never spend time doing these things:
1-
being mean to animals or plants
2- eating escargot
3- damaging or defacing books

I worry about…. so many things! Global warming, injustice, terrible messages in the media, pollution… also, being late, making a good first impression, having dinner on time, sitting next to somebody I don’t know in the cinema. If it can be worried about, I’m the woman for the job

I am proud of…. making this podcast!

I am interested in…. nature, animal facts, film trivia, equality

I am afraid of…. monsters, looking stupid, running out of biscuits

I don’t believe in…. meninism

I am good at…. procrastinating

I am poor at…. completing tasks in a timely manner

I have to…. make the bed every day

Nick, my family and friends, and cute animal videos….make me laugh

Animal videos that you think will be cute but are actually unkind….make me sad

Injustice….makes me angry
