The Shift is a podcast that aims to tell the truth about being a woman post-40, created and hosted by writer and broadcaster, Sam Baker. Did you ever wonder why you stop hearing so many women's voices once they pass 40? That's where The Shift comes in - a frank, funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always honest look at what it means to be a woman in midlife and beyond.

When you enter a relationship, you rarely consider how it might end. Let’s face it, how many of us would ever do anything if we crossed THAT bridge before we came to it. For today’s guest, writer and therapist Amy Bloom, THAT BRIDGE came all too soon when her husband Brian was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers and decided he would rather “die o…
 
Queen of Cannes Juliette Binoche joins me to discuss Between Two Worlds and the tough working life of an actor; director Mia Hansen Love completes a Cannes double with Bergman Island last year and now the gorgeous One Fine Morning with Lea Seydoux.

Welcome to this special bonus episode of The Shift, the podcast that aims to tell the no-holds barred truth about being a woman post 40. Created and hosted by me, writer and broadcaster, Sam baker. Listeners often ask why I don’t put myself on the receiving end of The Shift!? Well, a couple of weeks ago I did just that. When I was interviewed about…
 
My guest this week is one of the most enduring movie actresses of our (by which I mean my!) generation. Minnie Driver made her first film, Circle of Friends in 1995, and went on to follow that with a lead role in Stanley Tucci’s gorgeous ode to Italian food, Big Night, an Oscar nominated turn in Goodwill Hunting. And my personal favourite Grosse Po…
 
Today’s guest is a woman I’ve admired for the longest time: stage and screenwriter Abi Morgan. Throughout her thirty year career Abi has written some of our most memorable drama: Shame, Sex Traffic, The Queen, Iron Lady, The Hour (for which she won an Emmy), Suffragette and, most recently, the BBCone hit, The Split. In her work, female characters t…
 
Dublin director Colm Baread celebrates the first-ever wide release for an Irish-language feature film; The Quiet Girl. A haunting and beautiful adaptation of author Clare Keegan’s story, Foster. I review Call My Agent remake Ten Percent and look at Gaspar Noé’s minor masterpiece Vortex. Music by Lee Rosevere. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and o…
 
My guest this week is the award-winning journalist Chitra Ramaswamy. And, lucky me, Chitra lives in Edinburgh so - before I go any further - let me revel in the joy that was recording this episode IRL! With an actual RL person! I know… Anyway, back to Chitra. Her first book, Expecting: the inner life of pregnancy was garlanded with praise and won t…
 
I talk to director Roland Joffe about working with Ennio Morricone on The Mission, as featured in the new documentary Ennio - Roland also recalls Saturday morning cinema, winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, and falling in love with Julie Christie. And I meet director Nabil Ayouch, creator of lovely film Casablanca Beats about a bunch of Moroccan kids…
 
What happens when “one of the great comic writers of our time” hits menopause? That’s the conundrum that faced this week’s guest, award-winning novelist Nina Stibbe when she sat down to write her new novel. With five bestselling books under her belt, including her memoir, Love Nina, which was turned into a hit TV series starring Helena Bonham Carte…
 
Venice-winning director Audrey Diwan joins me to talk about her brilliant, breathless abortion thriller Happening, starring French film's Most Promising Newcomer, Anamaria Vartolomei; billionaire property developer and film producer Charles Cohen reveals his love of classic pictures, his adoration of classic cinemas and why he's restoring more sacr…
 
Back in the before times, I had an idea to launch a podcast that celebrated the achievements and lives of women over 40. With a couple of friends and an idiot-proof microphone I recorded the first series of what was to become The Shift. This is a replay of one of the first episodes I ever recorded - with my friend Jojo Moyes. Little did we know tha…
 
I talk to Finnish director Juho Kuosmanen about his Cannes-winning Russian train romcom Compartment No 6; and I meet director John Madden at The Chiswick Cinema to discuss Operation Mincemeat, war films and working with Colin Firth for the first time in over 20 years. Plus I review Viking epic The Northman and lesbian nun movie Benedetta. Music by …
 
Since I recorded this episode with Philippa Perry she's gone from strength to strength. Her already bestselling book has spent even more weeks at number one, she's got a new problem page in The Observer magazine - and it's brilliant. And now she's back on our screens with husband Grayson (and more importantly, Kevin the cat) in Grayson's Art Club. …
 
Acclaimed writer and actress Alexis Zegerman joins me to discuss her new play at Hampstead Theatre, The Fever Syndrome and takes me through her work with Mike Leigh, her favourite film memories and some Dirty Dancing. Joe Cole talks accents in indie film One if These Days and not doing Michael Caine in The Ipcress File. I review Mexican drama Praye…
 
One of my favourite things about making The Shift podcast is all the fascinating women I get to interview - and learn a little bit from. This is a replay of one of my all time favourites. I was in awe of the indomitable Channel 4 international editor Lindsey Hilsum when I interviewed her 15 months ago and even more so now, as we watch her daily rep…
 
My final guest of the season is the acclaimed screenwriter and bestselling author, Delia Ephron. Unfailingly wise, warm and witty, Delia is perhaps best known as co-writer of the Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks smash hit You’ve Got Mail, with her sister, the writer and director Nora Ephron,. Delia’s new memoir, Left On Tenth, is the kind of story that would out…

Totally lost sight of your personal style? Feel like your clothes hate you? Whether it’s the result of two years in and out of lockdown, emerging from the motherhood tunnel or the advent of menopause, many of us no longer have a clue how to get dressed. Enter this week’s guest: Kat Farmer, better known by her instagram handle @doesmybumlook40 - bes…
 
When was the last time you read a book where the central character was not just perimenopausal but also talked and thought about menopause and its impact on her life. And she wasn’t a laughing stock? I’m prepared to bet never. That was the driving force for my guest this week, novelist Dana Spiotta. What if, she asked herself, the lead characters o…
 
Paris and Oslo are the destinations as two leading lights of European cinema come to town on BAFTA weekend. Actor, performer, musician Jehnny Beth is one of the stars of Jacques Audiard's Paris 13th District and she talks about young love in Paris. a thing for Truffaut and her teenage crush on Sophie Marceau. Norwegian producer Thomas Robsahm is ch…
 
It takes courage to lay yourself bare on the page the way today’s guest does. Journalist Clover Stroud has written three memoirs - The Wild Other, My Wild and Sleepless Nights and, now, The Red of My Blood. Each more visceral, more exposing, than the last. But then Clover has lived no ordinary life (whatever that is). Hers features adventure, divor…
 
As he takes on the docs at the BAFTAs and Oscars, debut director Questlove joins me from his office in 30 Rock to look at my favourite film of the last year. We talk about the goosebump moments of seeing the re-discovered concert footage from Harlem 1969 for the first time, why he opened with Stevie Wonder on the drums, and how Sesame Street stoppe…
 
My guest today is the Jamaican author, journalist, film maker and (no exaggeration) living legend Barbara Blake Hannah. Already an experienced journalist when she arrived in London in 1964, Barbara was shocked to discover her achievements counted for nothing because of the colour of her skin. But she made headlines anyway, in 1968, when she became …
 
By the time we hit our 50s, most of us have… let’s just say… lived a little. But few have been through the mill to quite the extent that Christina Patterson has. Christina was 49 and recovering from breast cancer when she lost the job that she not just loved but that defined her. Rebuilding her life and career in her 50s formed the basis for her fi…
 
This week’s guest needs zero introduction - and not just because she’s been here before. Marian Keyes was one of the first guests on The Shift and her episode [episode 2 if you’re interested!] is still one of the most popular. So I’m delighted that she’s agreed to come back to chat about her new book - the long awaited sequel to her smash hit Rache…
 
We all tackle ageing in different ways but very few of us do it the way this week’s guest did - by packing up her entire life and moving thousands of miles to a new city and a new life. Until her mid-forties, writer Jami Attenberg sofa-surfed her way around America - the year she turned 40 she slept in 26 different beds in seven months! Even for th…
 
Fresh from her double BAFTA nomination, the star of Spielberg's West Side Story joins me to talk about playing the iconic role with original Anita, Rita Moreno, on set, hitting the high notes of Tonight, dancing the Mambo and meeting Stephen Sondheim; and star of 4-times BAFTA nominated Boiling Point Jason Flemyng talks about working in British ind…
 
My guest today is the international bestseller Dorothy Koomson. She started young - she had her first stab at writing a book at 13 - and, like me, worked on Just Seventeen, amongst many other magazines, before actually publishing her first novel at 30. She has now written 16 Sunday Times bestsellers and is the biggest selling Black author of adult …
 
Director Garth Jennings talks me through making a giant animated movie musical and reveals his love of Billy Wilder; debut film maker Sonita Gale discusses the brutal politics and necessary action around her doc Hostile. Among my recommendations are Riders of Justice and Parallel Mothers. Music by Lee Rosevere. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and…
 
I’m really thrilled to launch this season with one of my long time fantasy guests. Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland since 2015, has been dubbed one of the most powerful women in British politics, if not in Britain, and she shows no sign of stopping. Now 51, she grew up the eldest of two in an ordinary working class family in Ayrshire. He…
 
Romola Garai tells me about making her feature directing debut with horror film Amulet, and the films that inspired her along the way; award-winning artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige open up the secrets of their gorgeous film Memory Box, discussing their teenage years in Beirut, 80s mixtapes and the power of food; I review Nightmare Alle…

I run through the films that have stood out, sparked debate, and made an impact, from Bond to music docs.

It's season finale time. And have I got a festive special for you! There is no child of the 80s who won’t remember today’s guests. For a decade, Pepsi Demacque-Crockett and Shirlie Kemp - better known as Pepsi and Shirlie - were a fixture of the charts. First as part of Wham! With Shirlie’s school friends George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, then as…
 
Fresh from the first awards bash of the season, I catch up with winners from the British Independent Film Awards - Celeste Bell who carried of two prizes including Best Documentary for Poly Styrene: I Am Not a Cliche about her Mum, Poly Styrene, the late lead singer of former punk band X-Ray Spex; and Breakthrough Performance winner Nell Barlow, fr…

I'll bring you the latest news and interviews with nominees and winners and the newest reviews so you know exactly which films to catch up with to be in the know during all the clamour and glamour of the red ca…
 
My guest this week is a woman who - to coin a bit of 1980s jargon - punched through the glass ceiling for women in TV, creating not just one but a series of female lead characters who broke the mould. And not just any old female lead but OLDER female leads. There would be no Happy Valley or Scott & Bailey if it wasn’t for Lynda La Plante’s groundbr…
