Difficult Women podcast with Rachel Johnson

This week’s guest is author, journalist, radio presenter and former assistant editor of The Times – Mary Ann Sieghart. In this new LBC podcast, Rachel Johnson’s Difficult Women, Rachel speaks with women who had to be a pain in the backside to get where they are today. Women who take the word difficult as a compliment not an insult. And women who had to fight, resist, insist, or otherwise be badly behaved in order to get things done.
