Episode 129: Living Danishly with Helen Russell

Why are the Danes so happy? How can Van Halen get you through tough times with small children? And what would it be like to have sex with Craig David? We answer all these questions with the help of our brilliant guest, Helen Russell! She talks about why she moved from the UK to Denmark and her ace book on the subject, The Year of Living Danishly.We discuss why the Danes are so hot, and why their divorce rate is so high (surprisingly these things are unrelated.) There's also some chat about how Helen wrote her new novel, Gone Viking, which is out now. Thorn introduces an exciting new game, Great Dane or Great Dean?, and as always we finish with some Scummy Mummy Confessions. You can follow our guest @mshelenrussell on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The Scummy Mummies book is OUT NOW! We hope you like it, and if you do, we'd love an Amazon review! **SEE US LIVE** Come to our live comedy show!
