CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #65 Gillian Anderson & Jennifer Nadel

Today’s episode is with the WONDERFUL Gillian Anderson and Jennifer Nadel.

Gillian Anderson is an actress, activist and writer, probably best known for her iconic roles in the X Files and The Fall. Jennifer is a qualified barrister who, after reporting for the BBC and Channel 4 News, became ITN’s Home Affairs Editor. She has also written a non-fiction book which was made into a Channel 4 documentary and a novel called Pretty Thing.

They’ve together written a book called WE: A Manifesto for Women Everywhere.

Gillian and Jennifer are two good friends who for the last decade have stumbled along together, figuring stuff out, learning, failing, crying, laughing and trying – WE is a not a big heavy theoretical read but instead a rallying cry to create a life that has greater meaning and purpose. It combines tools which are practical, psychological and spiritual, to find a more fulfilling way of living life. It’s a really wonderful book. I couldn’t help but feel that the authors are passing on their best advice to their younger selves.
