241: Sali Hughes on how to handle life, teenagers and trolls

The Scummy Mummies Podcast

Oct 24 2022 • 1 hr 8 mins

What's the best place to start if you want to declutter your house? How do you get teenagers to talk to you? And what's it like to meet one of your online trolls? Answering all these questions and more is the amazing Sali Hughes!

She tells us about her brilliant new book, Everything is Washable and Other Life Lessons. We discuss our favourite bits, and Ellie reveals which of Sali's superb tips has already changed her life (spoiler: it involves gravy.)

There's some chat about getting through the teenage years, and why Sali believes adolescents deserve more credit than they're receiving. Then it's time for some serious talk as Sali discusses her experience of being harassed online.

We round off with some general chat about everything from boob reductions and airport etiquette to Helen embarrassing herself at parents' evening.

For more from Sali, check out her books, her Guardian column, and her instagram @salihughes.
