    #392 Vicky Spratt: We Need To Talk About Britain's Housing Crisis

    #392 Vicky Spratt: We Need To Talk About Britain's Housing Crisis

    My guest today is Vicky Spratt, the author of TENANTS: The People on the Frontline of Britain's Housing Emergency and journalist whose work regularly shapes public policy. She is also currently the iPaper's Housing Correspondent.  Her 2016 campaign Make Renting Fair got letting fees in England and Wales banned, and she has spoken at political conferences, appeared on BBC News, Newsnight, Woman's Hour, Radio 4 and tons more. Vicky is an incredible voice on this issue and I found this episode really galvanising, enraging, inspiring and empowering. Vicky has a way of making people wake up and feel engaged when it comes to issues that feel pretty overwhelming. I hope you enjoy this episode and if you did please consider sharing with a friend or leaving a review - or both! Thanks for listening.

    #391 Francesca Specter: How To Be Alone (and Enjoy it)

    #391 Francesca Specter: How To Be Alone (and Enjoy it)

    My guest today is  Francesca Specter, author of Alonement: How to be alone and absolutely own it, and the creator of the Alonement podcast. You guessed it, today we are discussing how to be alone - something I’m really passionate about as someone who values alone time, takes myself on solo trips and loves Julia Cameron’s suggestion of The Artist Date, where you take yourself on a date. Francesca speaks so brilliant about this and coined the term Alonement, which is different from being lonely - we talk about learning to enjoy your own company, what this means in the context of getting through a pandemic, tips and tools on how to embrace alone time if it’s something you feel afraid of and how we can speak about solitude in a more nuanced way. Hope you enjoy this conversation.

    #390 Clemmie Telford: What Does "Influencer" Even Mean Now?

    My guest today is Clemmie Telford, Creative Director, podcaster and author But Why: How to answer tricky questions from kids and have an honest conversation with yourself and a podcast with the same name. She is also the founder of the blog Mother of All Lists which hit over 1 million reads in 2018 she uses her social channels to enable frank, open and honest conversations, some of her most recent episodes are on domestic abuse to grief to ADHD to debt. She has been praised for showing her vulnerability around the highs and lows of Motherhood, discussing the challenges of mental health and anxiety and most recently the positive impact of being sober. I really enjoyed this honest chat about the word influencer and whether we are now ‘post-influencer’, working with brands as a parent, making it work, setting boundaries online and loads more. Hope you enjoy.

    #389 Sheila Heti: Art is the Opposite of an Algorithm

    #389 Sheila Heti: Art is the Opposite of an Algorithm

    My guest today is the brilliant Sheila Heti, author of Motherhood and How Should a Person Be? In this episode we discuss her latest book Pure Colour, a new novel l about art, love, loss and time. It has been described as a galaxy of a novel: explosive, bright, huge and streaked with beauty. Sheila Heti has also been described as philosopher of modern experience - and I really enjoyed this conversation. Motherhood, her novel which grapples with the question of whether or not to have kids was a huge inspiration on me - and I think Sheila is one of the most talented artists of our time. Enjoy this conversation, I loved it and was on cloud nine after recording!

    #388 Dr Rafa Euba: The Truth About The "Happiness" Industry

    #388 Dr Rafa Euba: The Truth About The "Happiness" Industry

    Does happiness even exist? Dr Rafa Euba doesn't think so. He is a consultant psychiatrist, based in London, born in the Bask Country, Spain and after qualifying in Medicine, he became a psychiatrist in England. He has worked in many different settings, from exclusive clinics to slums, and his work on depression moved him to write a book on how we are not designed to be happy, called "You are not meant to be happy. So stop trying!" It is such an interesting book, looking at the myths of happiness, how our brains are not designed to keep us happy 24/7, the smoke and mirrors of self-help positive thinking industries, and how mixed and contradictory our emotions can be. I hope you enjoy this conversation and feel intrigued to pick up a copy of his book!

    #387 Delia Ephron: Falling In Love Over Email

    #387 Delia Ephron: Falling In Love Over Email

    My guest today is Delia Ephron: bestselling author, screenwriter and playwright. Her movies include You've Got Mail (starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks) and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, she has written novels and non-fiction, and her journalism has appeared in the New York Times, Oprah magazine and Vogue. She collaborated with her sister, Nora Ephron, on a play, Love, Loss, and What I Wore, which ran for two years off-Broadway, and today we are chatting about her brilliant new memoir called Left on Tenth, A Second Chance at Life - a beautiful book about many things: Delia's second chance at love, her wonderful friendships and a heartfelt account of life after cancer. It’s a book about hope and I really really recommend a read and curling up with Delias words and shutting the world off for a moment. Hope you enjoy the conversation :)
