    Angela Watkins is a psychologist who shares her insights into how we can cope with COVID-19. This is a realistic yet reassuring look at the way that the Coronavirus is impacting us as individuals and on a global level. She gives us tips for managing stress and anxiety during this unprecedented time of uncertainty and ways that we can maintain social distancing, whilst thinking about our own self care. Angela shares strategies for parents on how that can manage home learning with their children. Angela and I discuss the differences between SARS and COVID-19, as we were both in Hong Kong during SARS. She reminds of of ways that we can bounce back after COVID-19 is over.

    S1E132: 132| My Romance Scam

    S1E132: 132| My Romance Scam

    Jenna Shellman from ‘Leading with your Gut’ podcast interviews me, Jules Hannaford about my online dating romance scam journey and the making of ‘Fool Me Twice’ true crime podcast. 

    I was successful and happy in my life and my job, but was still lonely. I turned to online dating as a last resort, after being single for more than a decade. It seemed I was consistently meeting men who were not good enough. One after another, they seemed only to want to swindle me out of my money, and I was getting frustrated.

    Finally, I met a man who had his life together. Truman was a successful project manager at a construction firm, and seemed as excited as I was about the possibility of building a life with someone special. I travelled across the world to meet him, and the fairy tale immediately began to unravel. All was not as it seemed.

    I wrote a memoir ‘Fool Me Twice’ and created a true crime podcast of the same name about my experiences. This episode explores my insights into of the world of sweetheart scams, catfishing, and the ugly side of online dating. Thanks to Jenna Shellman for sharing this awesome interview.
