What’s Your Thing? – Conversations with people about the things that inspire, interest and excite them.

Welcome to ‘What’s your Thing?’ A new podcast about people’s passions, ideas, pass-times, missions or life-styles to inspire us.



Join me for this conversation with Iain as he not only talks about what Dungeons and Dragons has added to his life, but how its depth and complexity create a space for re-imaging ourselves and how we show up in the world.

You might know Susan Earl from her roles in Red Dwarf, So Awkward, Reggie Perrin or as Christopher Dean’s mum in the Christmas special of Torvill and Dean.  She is a comedian, actress, writer, single mother and my friend.  In this conversation we talk about parenting, feminism, writing, misogyny and holidays and how, through comedy and laughter, we can find connection and comfort through even the hardest of times.

This is a conversation about community, magic and manifestation with Dorota Owen. In this conversation Dorota talks about Findhorn, honesty and the art of alchemy; her ability to make something appear where there was nothing before!

Join me in coversation with Ruth Cato as she explains what Shamanic healing is, how she came to it and what difference it makes to her life and the lives of the people she works with.

Gemma Hargreaves; a normal woman, juggling work and home, who gets up in the dark and paddles along canals before work on winter mornings!  Find out why and how this and her triatholons started and how, even you, might try something you didn’t think you could do before.

Liz was the Mary Poppins who saved me in my single parenting early years.  I found out about her Quakerism through her actions and not her words.  In this conversation she shares her story of what Quakerism has meant for her and why the process of deep listening and silence is so much needed in this world.  To listen click here or below.

In this solstice conversation with Parcifal Solomon we journey into the woods, with our feet in the dirt to explore consciousness, connection and the nature of reality.  Listen here or below.

Michael Sclater is one of the warmest, wisest people I know. He is a sufi and a psycotherapist, a maker and a thinker and it was a joy to talk to him about his forthcoming book on how to cure depression through love.  You can listen to it here or below.

My conversation today is with Sami Blackford who started her journey to creating Freya Luna Skincare as a teenager with acne. Join us as we meander through lavendar, women in business, organic growing and how to value what we do. You can find out more about Sami and Freyaluna here: https://freyaluna.co.uk/

Ceri Evans of Turiya Yoga talks about her yoga journey.

Ceri is the person who got me into yoga 4 years ago. She inspires me, not just in how she teaches but how she lives. In this podcast she tells us about what yoga means to her, how it has changed her life over the years she has practiced it and what it might offer at this time.

You can find out more about Ceri and contact her at Turiya Yoga.
