Here’s a bunch of radio appearances & podcasts that Bridget’s been on. Have a listen…
A brand new comedy series from award-winning stand-up comedian Bridget Christie. As Bridget Christie struggles to come to terms with current world events - Kim Jong-un, the melting polar ice caps, the Brexit negotiations and Nick Knowles singing a cover of The Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun", she embarks on a comic quest for her Utopia - a way of living that will make her less anxious and enable her to have her first happy wee since the Brexit vote in 2016.
Bridget explores politically disengaging, spirituality, moving to the country and being super rich - to see if any of that will make her happier.
Will not reading the papers, abstaining from all social media and not watching rolling news reports bring a smile to Bridget's face? Could yoga, Hinduism or becoming a nun be the answer to all her problems? What about living on a rural commune? Or auditioning for a lucrative TK Maxx commercial? Or will life still be completely rubbish?
Recorded in front of a live studio audience at the BBC Radio Theatre. Starring: Bridget Christie With special guests Mike Christie, Leyla Hussein, Sister Agatha & Fran Blockley

It details Bridget's 'feminist epiphany' - a fart in the Women's Studies section of a bookshop in April 2012 - and her subsequent journey from the bowels of stand-up comedy to one of the most critically acclaimed British standup comedians this decade. If you're interested in comedy & feminism, then A Book For Her is definitely for you.
If you hate both then you should probably give it a miss. As with ...Minds The Gap you can download an audio book of 'A Book For Her' on both iTunes & Amazon's Audible.
