Holy shit, that reminds me I'll have to stock up before my vacation later this month, too. Thank you for writing this or else I don't think it would have occurred to me!

Also you've had a super productive day so far!

You have such long and gorgeous hair - is it hard to brush though because it's so long?

If you don't mind it, I'm going to have to steal that line "proper mad." I like that. It explains the most florid of my manias perfectly. And I can see where things that were once habits fall away and it can take a long time for it to get back to normal. There are some days where I have to consciously think about things like brushing my teeth or washing my face or else I'll sincerely just forget to do them. Brains are stupid sometimes.

I first got hooked on In Our Time by listening to it to feed my R4 addiction on a plane to America; I can recommend that for not inducing rage, because it's usually about something specific that's not going on right now.

I second this recommendation. Other factors I like about In Our Time are:
* Melvyn Bragg is quite good at giving each of his three academics a turn to speak, and keeping the discussion on a track that means all the things he wanted to cover get covered
* there's very little shouting-over-each-other
* (at least since I started counting) there's always at least one female academic, sometimes two, and on one rare occasion there were three, I think it was about folk tales
* the topics are usually things about which I know very little, but addressed accessibly enough that I feel I've learned something each time

Yes! All of this.

Except I've gone through a fair chunk of the back catalogue and have found a few episodes where all three are women (and not just for "fluffy" "humanities" subjects either, I definitely remember at least one sciencey one because sadly it was notably exciting to hear women talking about science without a big deal being made of them being women). I have also occasionally heard three men, too, but rarely enough that again it's stuck out as noticeably unusual to me.

A History Of The World In A Hundred Objects is also reasonably safe.

Yeah, probably you're going to want to avoid R4 comedy to begin with.. even with the News Quiz (presented by a queer immigrant woman, often has several other women as guests), generally right-on and the only R4 comedy I listen to these days, I can still sometimes wince a bit at some of the jokes. (And don't confuse that with the Now Show, which is just awful and should be avoided at all costs.)
