    Fearne connects with co-founder Aimi to discover how those early experiences came to shape her life, and how the support network she created came to help her again, a little further down the road.

Fern I absolutely love you! Your podcasts are amazing. I feel like I learn something new about life and about myself every time. Your questions to guests are respectful, soulfully interesting (if that’s even a thing) and so genuinely thought provoking to the guest and your listeners. I am raving about you to anyone that will listen and I will say your fan girl group is growing over here in Aussie and NZ. We all have girl crushes and want to become your best friend 🥰
