From one Jackie to another! After a summer away from SCR, Jackie stands in for Jacqui Alexander on Happily Ever After. She finds out all about blogs from Gareth Edwards of Arrowsmith Marketing and is inspired to start her own! If you want to start your own blog for business benefit or just to share your stories, you need to listen!
Jill and Ashley, of The Old Mill, Shipston, tell us how they have rescued a famous local landmark and brought the fine dining experience to a corner of Warwickshire (at a range of budgets, of course). There is also one of TMIK’s most unintentionally hilarious moments, when the absence of one specific question before the show highlights a glaring omission in Jackie’s pre-show research. Not telling any more, listen to the show to find out!
Nicola is a Motivational Hypnotherapist. She inspires us all with her enthusiastic descriptions of how hypnosis can help you conquer fears and limitations. If you fancy unlocking the power of your unconscious mind to allow you to change the things you want to change in your life, find out more by listening to the show.
Jane, who was on the show a few weeks ago to talk about her role as organiser of the Mediaeval Fayre, returns to talk about her “day job” in large scale event production. Jackie is spellbound by tales about the stars of the entertainment world, from Cirque du Soleil to the Brits. (Yes, Jane was there for the Jarvis Cocker incident!) There’s just too much to mention here – you’ll just have to listen to the show!
Newly appointed Best Friend of the show, Anna returns for her 3rd appearance on This Much I Know to advise us on how to get bikini fabulous in time for the summer holidays. It’s all about ditching those demon refined carbs and concentrating on nutritious, low GI food (with the odd glass of champagne, perhaps?) and upping the exercise! We have a small detour to discuss a quote from Catherine Deneuve, but apart from that, it’s all about how to develop a healthy eating blueprint for life.

Simon is the Health and Safety Officer for the Stratford Beer Festival. One of the best job titles we’ve had on This Much I Know! He pops into the show to tell us about the event and why locally produced and sourced Real Ale and Cider are the best drinks around (consumed responsibly, of course!).

An action-packed show with 2 guests! Adrian Grubb of the Stratford Town Hosts tells us all about the folk in the yellow jackets, who are there to provide information and advice about Stratford Town Centre, its shops, restaurants, pubs and tourist attractions (Shakespeare, anyone?). He reveals the most frequent and the most unusual questions he’s ever been asked! Towards the end of the show, we are joined by Jane Hornby of the Mediaeval Fayre, who gives us an overview of what to expect at the event itself. Jackie is amazed that there are so many people in the area who spend their free time indulging in mediaeval activities! It’s local Stratford all the way in this show!

For those of you with chocoholic tendencies, Simon, of Experience Chocolate, has the best job in the world. As a chocolatier, he teaches people how to make luxury chocolates. We hear about his move from a career in the law to his new role as chocolate entrepreneur and get hints and tips about the best types of chocolate. Of course, it goes without saying that Sam gets to sample some of the chocolate! If you love chocolate, you need to listen to this! Listen in to find out!

Alison is the Chair of the Shipston Wool Fair. She tells us why going to the Wool Fair is a great way to spend a Bank Holiday Monday for all the family. Any guesses about how long it takes to shear a sheep, anyone? We also talk about Alison’s love of La Dolce Vita in Italy. If you want a slice of rural life, then listen in. Listen in to find out!

Jackie talks to renowned author Sophie King about the inspiration and motivation needed to be a successful writer. We hear about Sophie’s personal journey from journalism to writing books. Sophie talks about how much she enjoys teaching and passes on some tips for people still with that book or article bubbling away inside them. A fascinating interview! Listen in to find out!
