The One With Rowena Purdy

Transgender rallying champion Rowena Purdy joins us for a brand-new episode.

If you've been on social media today, you may have noticed a certain topic is trending.

#ComeOutForTransEquality has been all over posts throughout the day - which makes the guest on this episode particularly appropriate.

Rowena Purdy is a championship-winning rally driver who helped fly Vulcans in the RAF, and has been writing about motorsports for more than a quarter of a century.

She also transitioned later in life and, now in her mid-70s, has got an awful lot to talk about - from developing a love of rallying in Kenya to travelling around the world, to how she decided when the time was right to transition.

She's a great guest - and we really think you'll like her.
