I don't go in a box. Neither does this Podcast. "We are all different, some of us just stick out more than others" Dr Naoisé O'Reilly
A podcast that ranges from Children to Adults. Personality to Psychology. Education to Development. Philosophy to a modern critique of society and our politics. I started out caring about success - now I care about secureness.
I don't aim to give answers - I aim to give you permission to arrive at your own. Critical thinking possible for everyone regardless of education status.
I’ve been told that tuning into me is like taking the Red Pill from The Matrix as you build your core from the inside out.
