The You Do You Show #31 Milly Thomas: on mental health in pop culture, near-religious musical experiences, and Gordon Ramsey
Helloooo, come on in, take off your shoes and settle down for another episode of The You Do You Show, a weekly interview podcast in which I chat with a guest I admire about the ways in which pop culture has influenced who they are and what they do.
This week I had the absolute pleasure of going round to have a coffee with writer and actor Milly Thomas. She’s written a whole host of plays but it's Dust - a really frank, portrait of suicide and what comes after it - that we talk about most during our conversation. We also discuss portrayals of mental health in pop culture, the music that’s guaranteed to make her cry in a Pret, and the Gordon Ramsay one-liners that make her spit tea at her laptop. Extremely mixed genres there but it works.
