    This episode features discussion of body image and eating issues. Please listen with care and put your mental health first.
     
    This week we're talking about expectations; how social media might exacerbate long standing societal norms, how letting go of one pressure can empower you in other areas, and what to do when it's tension we put on ourselves that's holding us back.

Alex just published her first book 'You are not a before picture' which whizzed straight into the Sunday Times Bestseller charts and Em is a ball of online empowerment, from her Feelgood Fridays to her Have-a-gos.

Dear Gemma,
I really appreciate your podcast and would like to thank you for your work :)
I like the way you bring your subjects and your kindness with your guest, the discussion is natural and based on personal experiences which I really appreciate. Listening to the episode with Charlie Cox on mental health was really interesting and so fair, I may have missed some things because I am French but there are so many times when I deeply understood your words.
I look forward to the other episodes.
Thank you Gemma

Helpful and simple

As in anything that is genuine, and is trying to talk about important matters, this podcast came to be really helpful to me. It’s is just a simple talk, about personal experience, but I think anybody can appreciate it, and find themselves in this. Easy to listen to !
