Ify Adenuga, the mother of Skepta, JME, Julie and Jason Adenuga, joins Lauren to talk about her new memoir Endless Fortune. The book details her life as a fighter, a thinker, a feminist and a parent. It covers her life from Lagos to London and joins the conversation around migration politics and immigration in the UK. Ify continues to work with organisations across the UK and Nigeria to guide and support young people and help them lead independent lives in safe communities.

Plus the punk poet John Cooper Clarker gives his Social Recall.
