Bryony Gordon

Teeth-brushing tango and restorative Rachmaninov - Bryony finds solace in Clemmie's classical playlist.

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, another chance to hear writer and podcaster Bryony Gordon talking to Clemmie about mental health and music. In this episode, first broadcast in 2019, Bryony finds solace in Clemmie's classical playlist, from teeth-brushing tango to restorative Rachmaninov.

There is some mild swearing in this programme.
