There Are Other Ways is a weekly podcast for people brave enough to explore a less well-trodden path in life. Hosted by Fiona Barrows, each episode features an interview with someone who is living life a little differently, and offers support, insight and inspiration for listeners keen to do the same.
Whether it's travelling the world, setting up your own creative business, or simply refusing to judge yourself by someone else's definition of success, doing things differently can be scary, lonely and confusing. But hearing other people's stories of how they have done it, and lived to tell the tale, can help. That's what this podcast is for.

    A catch-up with Cait Flanders

    A catch-up with Cait Flanders

    So after a somewhat unplanned six month break, There Are Other Ways is back! But before we get started on the interview episodes I wanted to talk a bit about why I took a break, and what's been going on over the last six months, and Cait Flanders was kind enough to interview me. We sat down over coffee and chatted about, among other things: awkward social encounters, internet friends, the stories we tell ourselves, anxiety, The Dream, wobbles, pivoting my business, and not being ashamed of being emotional anymore. It's a very honest conversation, and I really hope you enjoy it.
