Jane Gordon is a celebrated journalist and author, and she's also... Bryony's mum. 

She talks to Bryony about surviving lockdown on her own, why life drawing keeps her feeling young and the importance of making time to call your loved ones. And in proof that all parents are as embarrassing as each other, she manages to fit in a fair bit of that too.
