Athena Kugblenu and the Freshness of Cleopatra's Ass Milk

Season 2, Ep. 6
There’s a baby joining in this conversation. Sadly, we couldn’t understand his wise and hilarious words because we have forgotten how to speak Baby. Huge kudos to Athena for multitasking like a boss and enormous thanks to her for being so generous with her time.We learned about the amazing Yaa Asantewaa, Ghanaian queen mother and rebel, we speculated on the sell by date of Cleopatra’s ass milk - the milk from a donkey, you sicko. And whether Serena Williams would be a good Roman Emperor. Spoiler: YES!We also slagged off builders big time. And then we slagged off their boss, but speculated on the kind of dinner that would be enough to induce us to spend time with someone who destroyed our children’s dreams.We talk about running and sports. And Rhianna. In the same scenario. Athena fails to understand the rules and then gets put in charge of the whole country.And it’s a really interesting chat about lots of political things.And we’ve got a gambler on our hands... but will she win?And if you like Judi Love there’s a nice story about her.Who’s our guest and how can you reach them on the socials?Find Athena on Twitter at @AthenaKugblenuOur Social media links:Find Eyre Leigh Doors online on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and now Tiktok, for goodness sake!Find Louise Leigh on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and also on Tiktok, this is her finest workCatch up with Pauline Eyre on Twitter, Facebook and InstagramWhat now for you, lovely listener?We love that you’ve listened, whether for the first time or if you’re a returning listener.
