    For those with an interest in food / sugar addiction, there will be a special edition of Dr Jen Unwin’s Clubhouse room - Fork in the Road - on Wednesday 2nd June, 6pm featuring Tom Watson talking about his personal journey.

    Apparently invitations are no longer needed for Clubhouse and this invite link should get you in:

    I also understand that Android phone users can now access Clubhouse (it was previously Apple only).

    As a regular participant in the Fork in the Road room I can thoroughly recommend it.

    Not sure. They’re not normally recorded because people share quite personal details and it’s more of a support group. It could be different with Tom Watson there, but hasn’t been mentioned. You could try pinging Jen Unwin on Twitter - she’s very responsive.

    Great listen and relatively dismissive of Dr Ted too!

    Excellent Clubhouse chat. @MrsA2 I can confirm it wasn’t recorded.

    David Unwin is going to be speaking next week about the impact of sugar on the body.

    @MrsA2 its a long time since this post, but as of last Wednesday, Jen Unwin’s Wednesday Clubhouse rooms are being recorded. They’ll be uploaded to her website. First one is already there. See this Tweet (Twitter account not needed) for details. They’re all broadly sugar / food addiction related, but cover a wide range of topics. This first recorded one touches a lot on cholesterol and features a cardiologist.
