    Season 2, Episode #1: Reinvention

    Season 2, Episode #1: Reinvention

    To kick off Season 2 - I went to Natwest in Spinningfields to chat with Dark Coffee founder and successful podcaster Alice Lyons. 

    I always love chatting to Alice and enjoy her straight-talking approach and authenticity. I feel her journey is inspiring and has led her to a point where she is having a positive impact on lots of people!

    Dark Coffee is all about championing unfiltered conversations around mental health, so this chat does touch on some potentially scary topics such as Suicidal Ideation which I believe Alice always navigates and explains well. I hope to learn from and collaborate more with Alice in the future. You can find out more about her on the Dark Coffee website and at one of her upcoming Mind Over Grind events!

    Hope you enjoy this one,

    Mike
