Nikesh Shukla presents a warm and listenable new series about family. Plus: how Paris Hilton became the original influencer
Brown Baby (out from 20 Jan)
Writer Nikesh Shukla, editor of the bestselling Good Immigrant anthology among other projects, hosts this new series about raising children “with joy and wonder” in difficult times, ahead of the release of his own family-themed memoir. Guests include singer Jay Sean, primetime cookery queen Nadiya Hussain, comedian Josie Long and TV legend Meera Syal, who reflects on her own upbringing as the daughter of Punjab-born parents who embraced her creativity, and how her children’s lives have been both similar and different to her own. A warm and highly listenable show.
