CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: Episode 1 with Elizabeth Gilbert

I’m so so SO excited to share the very first episode of my new podcast with best-selling author and one of my biggest inspirations, Elizabeth Gilbert. 

I enjoyed chatting to Liz SO MUCH. She is one of the most inspirational women I’ve ever met and I am so honoured that she said “yes” to being my first guest!

We spoke about the 10th anniversary of Eat Pray Love and what that journey would have been like if Liz had an Instagram account at the time(!). We discuss the new book from Riverhead books called Eat Pray Love Made Me Do It, which is a round-up of essays from a series of individuals who’s lives changed after reading Eat Pray Love. We also discussed how to switch off from social media to get shit done and how your own online community can help you come up with new ideas and feed your curiosity. We spoke about finding the courage to work on new projects and leaving old ones behind; how to write in our different voices and how the clothes we choose to wear can give us strength.
