About This Show
Born of an epiphany with a couple of friends in a bar that no longer exists in a city I no longer live in, Critically Drinking is the combination of critical review and audits on business, pop culture, content, and concepts without the filters that sober minds cause us.
As consumers of content, services, and products, we are all natural critics but are more often than not focused on what people are comfortable hearing rather than what we really think and feel about something.
As in life, Critically Drinking is a mash-up. The musings of a scholar-practitioner doing their best to blend criticism with pop culture and human nature. Opinions shared on the podcast are those of the individual and as such are to be taken as no reflection on current or future employers and partners.
We solemnly swear that we are up to no good...

The creation of her public persona has actually served to bring her even closer to her family as she shares her feelings in real time with the world. Unfortunately, not every day has been fun. Being lonely, losing friends, and being responsible for creating her own motivation to hustle is not as easy as it seems, but as she navigates each new challenge, Lucy’s story it helping people around her and she feels that using her strengths can fuel the energy of her readers. ”I love to make people feel empowered and I realised that that was my thing”.
