Single Minded is the podcast flipping the script on being single. It's for independent thinkers who are forging their own paths, with a healthy dose of dating chat & lols. Hosted by Hannah Furst and her mum Linda, each fortnight they delve into topics like creating an authentic dating profile, single shaming, egg freezing, financial independence, travelling solo, navigating a one night stand and forging your own path in life. It was created for women of a certain age who are sick of the societal pressure towards settling down. They don't want to wait to meet someone before their real lives can begin, because being 'single minded' is about living your best life NOW.
