    32: The Best of Season 1

    This week on As Me, Sinéad shares some of her favorite moments from Season 1 that reflect the essence of the show. From talking about imposter syndrome with Florence Welch and Riz Ahmed to self-acceptance with Justin Tranter and Akilah Hughes to letting go of perfectionism with Adwoa Aboah. Each of these moments captures the power of connection and vulnerability in every episode, all of which help us to understand and empathize with each other more.

Thoughtful conversations with wonderful people!

A brilliant person who feels like a friend

I love fashion also and love the history and the fashion designers. This podcast has plenty of fashion info but the first time I listened to the podcast I felt like I was having a cup of tea with a friend. I hope Sinead continues this because it is really inspiring and just good.
