Playing in the studio this past week….

My dear friend Kim Klassen has finally launched her podcast – Write Life (she’s been talking about doing it for years!) The first few episodes set the scene, as Kim tells her story and then moving forward each episode will inspire and encourage you to get writing and making things happen. Go listen… it’s beautiful.

Dolly Alderton’s Love Stories with Adam Kay – a wonderful conversation of hilarious stories of his time as a junior doctor and in the final part they talk about his love of the NHS… and this is something we can all agree with. Long may it continue – medical care for all.

Bob Mortimer on Desert Island Discs. A calm thoughtful listen to the songs that tell stories from different parts of his life.

So enjoyed this in depth conversation between Tim Ferriss and Susan Cain – I was interested in what they were saying about public speaking because I’ll be at The Family Narrative next month and some tips would be useful. But even if public speaking isn’t your thing, there were lots of great ideas and advice shared.

Celebrating 200 episodes – The two kings of podcasts Richard Herring & Adam Buxton have a silly and amusing chat on RHLSTP.

Lily Allen talked to Elizabeth Day on her How To Fail podcast – Parts of it felt awkward as Lily seemed distracted. But still worth a listen as Elizabeth keeps it on track.

A new to me podcast – Hurry Slowly. I didn’t know where to start, so I picked a few. Something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently – Creativity vs efficiency. Plus, the interview with Austin Kleon is so interesting. So great to hear about the pen vs keyboard, as I love to use both and sometimes it feels a little old fashioned in this electronic era. And the chat with Craig Mod is such an important reminder.

And finally… it’s me on the Being Freelance podcast! Please do have a listen and let me know what you think (I don’t like to listen back!) and while you’re there, check out the other episodes… recent ones I’ve enjoyed are Kat Molesworth :: Kelly Dunning :: Martha Williams :: Kate Toon :: Nathan Allotey. Huge thanks to Steve Folland for inviting me on to share my freelance adventure.

Happy listening… till next time.

If you’d like more suggestions, take a look at previous posts and do share any recommendations you think I might like.
