But then it's back to the usual old nonsense as Mei tells us about the time she met the queen sporting the world's dodgiest perm, and why suburban America is the strangest place she's ever lived. We finish up with Scummy Mummy Confessions, and Ellie almost throws Mei off the podcast for slagging off Marie Kondo.
Mei's brilliant book is out now. You can read more about her at meifong.org, and follow her on Twitter @meifongwriter.
We're on Twitter (@scummymummies), Instagram, and Facebook. Please send your confessions to firstname.lastname@example.org visit us at ScummyMummies.com. If you like the podcast, do tell your friends!
Thank you for listening!
