How's the pregnancy Going, Beth?!

Coercive control.
What is coercive control? What did Sally Challen and David Challen say about their experiences of their landmark campaign referencing the existence of coercive control in her relationship with her husband? How can we do more to support those who come forward when they identify themselves as having been in coervicely controlling relationships? What more can the criminal justice system do? How can we improve our society to stamp out such coervicely controlling relationship?

Yr wythnos yma fe wnaeth rhywun cywiro fy iaith ar trydar. Dyma fy marn ar plismyn ieithyddol a mwy.
Sut ydym am hybu mwy o bobl i ddefnyddio'r iaith os yw rhai yn ein cywiro ac yn ceisio ein tanseilio? Sut mae ennyn pobl i fod yn ddigon hyderus ac i fyw trwy gyfrwng y gymraeg?

Smear tests. Why do some women decide not to go for a test? Here my views on the issue.
I got in to a Twitter chat recently with a journalist about why some women don't go for smear tests and how we can encourage them to do so. It may be uncomfortable, it may be traumatic for some, but ultimately it will benefit our health. I give me views on this, how we can have a better understanding of it, more awareness campaigns, and the idea of self testing which is being piloted in London soon.

I travelled to Gothenburg and Oslo last week. Listen to me chat about what I did when I was there.
I love to travel. I love Nordic Noir so I always like to travel to Nordic countries to see where the programmes were filmed or where the crim novels I read were located. I went back to Sweden and Norway last week. Travel widens horizons and gives you experiences to last a lifetime. It also makes me realise how successful small Nations can be, and makes me more determined to fight for an Independent Wales!.... ****SORRY I POSTED THIS PODCAST ON REPEAT. IT DOESN'T LAST 3O MINS. ROOKY ERROR. ****
