Jeremy Corbyn; KT Tunstall
Leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn; Scottish singer, songwriter and musician, KT Tunstall; Journalist and writer, Reni Eddo Lodge.
Woman's Hour has invited the leaders of seven political parties to talk about their manifestos and what they would do for women - today it's Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Two years ago, Scottish singer songwriter KT Tunstall thought she was done with music. She upped and moved to Venice Beach in California, but the urge to make music never went away. And so last year she released a new album, KIN. She's here in the UK touring her new music, and joins Emma Barnett to describe how her new life in Venice Beach inspired her music, and to perform It Took Me So Long To Get Here, But Here I Am, live in the Woman's Hour studio
In 2014 the journalist and writer Reni Eddo-Lodge published a post on her blog titled "Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race". In it she claimed that she could "no longer engage with the gulf of an emotional disconnect that white people display when a person of colour articulates their experience." Reni joins Emma to discuss her new book of the same name and explains why, having decided that she was no longer going to discuss race with white people, she has been doing just that for the past three years.
