Navigating Instagram in 2022 with Johanna Renoth
In today's show, I chat with Social Media expert Johanna Renoth. As she is currently doing her PhD on Instagram, we focus on the good, bad and ugly of this platform and discuss how we as individuals should try to improve our relationship with it.
In this far-reaching and fascinating chat, we cover many topics, including the evolution of social media, the algorithm, influencers' personal branding, dating, mental health, technology, attention, tribalism, politics, culture, society and we discuss various ways to make sure social media works for you, not against you.
My guest Johanna is a researcher on technology and its effects on culture, well-being, and democracy She shares her findings and personal experiences as a writer, speaker, and coach.
Her mission is to help people and societies build healthier, more empowered relationships with technology and social media by sharing practical tools and knowledge about tech - especially for non-techies. She's been a tech founder and entrepreneur, VC fellow, executive coach, duty editor, crisis reporter, and researcher, among other things. Her current PhD-level research is on Instagram and the effects of technology on democracies, culture, and well-being.

Being true to yourself with Chaye Hartwell
Chaye is an MX Instructor, Model, Entrepreneur, and Author from Sydney, Australia. Her new book, 'Chaye Unfolding' is a memoir that details her transition from male to female.
In today's Podcast, we have an open and honest chat about this transition. Hopefully, we can all learn lessons from Chaye's story, such as the importance of self-awareness, being true to ourselves and how change is sometimes the necessary pain we must go through if we want a different outcome.
Chaye is so much more than her gender and her trans-activation ... in the same that I'm much more than my job title and you are more than the colour of your skin... labels are by their nature reductive. We talk briefly about the label of being a trans-woman and how that affects old and new relationships, we also both share words of wisdom from Alan Watts and we talk MX, nutrition, wellness and more. I hope you enjoy it.
