This is an introduction to TSB Podcast! What makes a SB? A SB is someone who is not afraid to create their own box, working and living to never compromise their integrity.
I believe integrity IS a sexy word and more relevant than ever.
#18 Tyson Joseph on storytelling and finding the way home to yourself
Follow Tyson here:
Check out some of his films:
My guest in todays episode is Tyson Joseph, he is a producer and director from London, founder of STORIES LIKE US and stories are his BIG passion, you'll be able to hear that from the minute he starts talking.
This chat is so full of gold nuggets. Tyson was generous in sharing his own story and how that has shaped him. Storytelling is a big responsibility and an honour. And Tyson is very particular about the difference of telling a story about someone and a story that actually reflects someone.
We talk about growth and love too - and the running theme throughout this episode is ultimately living in truth, whether that is in work, in your relationships, in your mindset. Using your story to walk yourself home. Back to the authentic, healthiest version of yourself.
I really hope this conversation fires you up the way it did with me. I hope it makes you remember who you are and what makes you the most alive.
Enjoy, subscribe and share! xx
#17 Phil Drysdale on the stages of deconstructing Christianity and transforming your pain
Todays guest is Phil Drysdale. I first found Phil on Instagram because of his hilarious christian deconstruction memes: https://www.instagram.com/phildrysdale/
This is the second episode on this podcast about faith deconstruction, I have done one before with Joshua Harris, the author of I kissed dating goodbye, if you haven’t listened to that one, that might be interesting for you too.
Phil Drysdale helps people loose their faith :) That is what his bio says but it’s much much more than that. When you deconstruct christianity or any other faith you are not set out to loose it. That is not the intention. You have questions. You are understanding , knowing new things from different perspectives. Things that once you. Know them you just cannot un-know them , it’s impossible, there is no turning back. Phil went through this process himself , is going through it, we are never done. And he simply helps people through the stage they are at. It’s one thing we cover extensively in this episode : the different psychological stages of growth and development and what they mean in the christian context , in a deconstruction context.
Personally, I have often struggled with those stages and relating to people in stages that I have outgrown and relating to my former self in those former stages. That’s something Phil explains so generously in this conversation. We also speak about what to do with those difficult emotions like pain, shame , guilt once you are not a christian anymore. How to transform those emotions, we talk about shadow work and so many other things
If you are a deconstructing christian , or an ex-christian you are going to find this episode so enlightening and healing , there is no doubt in my mind.
Hope you enjoy this episode and it makes you feel less alone on your journey! Follow Phil here and check out the Deconstruction Network he created:
#16 Soraya Stuart: A personal mental health journey
Follow Soraya here: https://www.instagram.com/sorayastuart/
Today's delightful guest is Soraya Stuart, mental health blogger, host for Black Minds Matter and human extraordinaire.
Soraya started posting and sharing about mental health before it was everywhere and she does it so generously, with a lot of heart, humour and honesty. She did not hold back in this episode, sharing about therapy, her mental health journey, family, racism in the workplace, how a religious upbringing influenced her mental health, how she handles social media and what 2020 taught her.
One of my favourite quotes from this chat is: “Don’t be afraid to burn bridges if you don’t plan to walk back”
I hope you take value from our conversation - if you do, please leave a little review, it would mean so much! Enjoy this episode xx

#14 Ayesha Erkin: Where are you from?
Follow Ayesha online: https://www.instagram.com/ayeshaerkin/
Today's episode is close to my heart, because it's all about identity and belonging as an immigrant. Ayesha is Pakistani born of Turkic and Arab descent and she has lived in many places all over the world. The question 'Where are you from?' is not a simple one to answer for Ayesha and the explanation is long and interesting. I recommend listening to our full conversation, as she goes into all the details of her family history.
Ayesha is an architect but has a lot of talents and passions outside of architecture: like fashion and food. What those things mean to her and how they tie together her many identities is fascinating.
We talk meeting immigrant parents expectations, something we both relate to very well, breaking out of comfort zones and finding the place you belong and who you want to be. I love Ayesha's manifesto when she says: 'I can be more than one thing' .
What a beautiful way to enter the new year, 2021. Realising we are not set in stone, we are not trapped in the past. We can decide who we want to be, while honouring where we come from. Over and over again.
#13 Rebecca Munroe on life in the face of mortality, confidence and self-reliance (and a lot more)

This episode if full of big things like heartbreak, joy, anger, romance, grief, self love, passion - Becca was so open with her life, I appreciate her so much for it!
She talks to me about her dad who suffers from MS and how this has impacted her life, we talk about her beautiful work, her relationship with her partner (they've been together since they were kids!) and all the beautiful in between feelings this life throws at us.
She also tells me how this years BLM events have changed her: this episode is so RICH with content, goodness and grace and honesty ! And also very long. So you can listen to it while you’re cooking or going for a walk. Enjoy! And please leave me 5 stars and some nice words :) It really helps TSB! Much love x Nadia
