    Episode 100 - Andrea Splendori - Podcast Host

    When I started the Social Fabric Podcast I had an idea of rebuilding the fabric of society through conversations.


    Just over two years on and 100 guests, that idea is turning into reality.


    Some small communities have been created around these conversations, some changes have taken place, some collaborations and a of course some wonderful stories have been told.


    I am forever grateful to every single guest that has taken the time to share a story with me, every single listener that has allowed me to keep them company week in and week out, Lucky Bones (https://open.spotify.com/track/072Wjl6rPoo2dlD7nDkLzv?si=8FMbdFKJS3W2lWiWsgGnXA) for the song Alice, the title tune.


    Why fit in when you were born to stand out
