Grace Victory, Scottish politics, camels

Blogger and YouTuber Grace Victory, the impact of female party leaders in Scotland on the nature of its politics, the risks of cardiac arrests for men during sex, and camels.

Dubbed the 'Internet's Big Sister', Grace Victory is an award-winning blogger and YouTuber with over 23 million total views to date. She's a dedicated mental health and body confidence activist who has worked with the BBC, NHS and London Fashion Week. She joins Jane to discuss her career and work.

As Scottish Labour prepares to find a new leader we discuss the impact of Kezia Dugdale's decision to stand down. She led the party through a difficult time following its crushing defeat in the 2015 General Election that saw the party lose 40 of their 41 MPs and was one of three female party leaders in Scotland, alongside the SNP's Nicola Sturgeon and the Conservative's Ruth Davidson. Who is in the running to take over as leader and has this period of female political dominance changed politics in Scotland? We ask Julia Rampen from the New Statesman and Joyce McMillan from The Scotsman.

It's known that men are considerably more likely to suffer a cardiac arrest than women - but new research suggests they're less likely to survive if it happens during sex, because their partners are too embarrassed to call for help. We discuss the risks men face and what you can do if it happens to your partner.

The mother and daughter who've teamed up to train camels and are now considering producing camel milk.
