SIM Ep 739, Pod 207: Nightcrawling, madhouses, and a surprising amount of Bill Pullman

Leila Mottley is the author of the hour – and don’t take our words for it, that’s straight from Oprah Winfrey. She joins Mick to talk about her novel Nightcrawling, based on a real-life story, which tells the tale of Oakland teen Kiara, who is fighting to keep her life together any which way she can, leading to her being sexually exploited by police.

Meanwhile Hannah catches up with actress Sinead Matthews, star of Hullraisers - who can currently be seen on stage in The Madhouse, alongside David Harbour and Bill Pullman - about dysfunctional families, death, and money, among other things.

In Jenny Off The Blocks, Jen’s chatting about the ongoing outpouring of stories of abuse in gymnastics, while it’s high fives all round in cycling. And can women really not play baseball? Hannah and Jen question 1940s American Voice’s judgement in this week’s Rated Or Dated, as they watch 1992’s A League Of Their Own.
