Episode 116: A Different Difficult

Emily is back. We chatted in episode 80 when her son was 5 weeks old and now he is 1 and we go over the year of keeping a human alive. I’m biased because Emily is one of my favourite people but I really liked this chat. We talk about the difficulties in being a new parent and the difficulty of when he doesn’t really get easy, it just changes. ‘What do you do when you’ve done everything,’ is a pretty great question.

Episode 114: Temptation Failure Guilt Condemnation

Whatever I put in the explanation of Anthony Venn-Brown’s life would only be superficial in explaining his story. I went to school with his daughter (eps 90 and 110), and now I get to talk to him. It is like a real interview. I had to read a book, his book, first so we could cover a life of shame,  reckoning and plenty of self realisation.. 

You can read his book, ‘A Life of Unlearning’ too HERE. Anthony is also the founder of Ambassadors & Bridge Builders International, which creates understanding, acceptance and a better world for LGBTI people.

Grab a bag of dairy crisp and enjoy.

Episode 109: 100% Cartoon Brain

Alyson Hill rejoins me for turtleneck time! We cover more stuff about our brains and the songs that flow through them. Alyson is moving away from me and we discuss why she would do such a thing. As per usual we travel all over the conversation map to cover clutter, spontaneous crying, communities and how to handle children leaving home and leaving your children.

I hope the tune stays in your head too.
