Episode 245: People Like Us

Show Notes

Vicky and Joe open with a serious message about the absolute shit-show that 2021 week 1 has been so far: learn to spot how the media reports certain things. Listen for it. Look for it. And call it out. Then crack on with writing your truth. In this episode, you’ll hear all about inertia and how to defeat it, the power of habits and momentum, and the wonders of a group of people who help you grow.
