  • Children and Access to Porn

    According to a study by Psychologies magazine, one in three children have watched online porn by the time they are 10. Psychologists warn that exposure to shocking sexual imagery at a young age can damage a child’s future relationships but as 75% of parents have never discussed online porn with their children, how will youngsters know how to cope with what they see. To discuss the issue, Jane is joined by John Brown, Head of Strategy and Development at the NSPCC and psychotherapist Susanna Abse.

  • Louise Stern

    Louise Stern

    The writer and artist Louise Stern is obsessed with communication. The characters in her short story collection, Chattering, are often isolated, ignored or misunderstood. What sets most of them apart is that, like Louise herself, they have grown up deaf. They communicate with the hearing world in any way they can – through sign language, lip-reading, note-scribbling, guesswork and instinct. Jane speaks to Louise (via her interpreter, Oliver Pouliot) about never taking communication for granted.
