The Slumflower: What A Time To Be Alone (Live) – Episode 62

This week’s episode is very special as it’s the live interview I did with my good friend Chidera Eggerue aka The Slumflower at the London Podcast festival.

And it’s a really powerful one as we discussed her two incredible books ‘What A Time To Be Alone’ & ‘Scribble Yourself Feminist’ and the processes that went into writing them, plus Chidera shared some amazing thoughts on mental health, imposter syndrome, parenting and what she’s learnt through recently starting therapy.

There’s so many gems in this episode so make sure you share it with a friend 🙂 And please be sure to leave a review on the podcast too!
