Doing the thing, moving on and "no ragrets"
I'm joined on this episode by a former colleague of mine Adanma and we talk about moving on. She left her role in the organization (where we met) to pursue her creative passions so I wanted to talk to her about knowing when the right moment to move on is. We get into her discoveries about who she is professionally, how she's never had trouble moving towards a purpose and accepting that sometimes the creative process can look like watching all 7 seasons of Parks and Recreation...for the 4th time.

Street Preachers, Thirst Traps & the Entitlement of Strangers Online
It's a takeover episode and a season finale all in one! Andrew is one of those people who loves to turn ideas and thoughts over and over in his head to try and make sense of them and one of the things we've discussed at length is how people behave online. Why do we feel an ownership over the behavior of strangers online and what is it about us that makes us act the way we do? He took these questions to someone who knows the internet (& Beyonce!) pretty well. Nonie - who believes in the power of the phone and the internet- chats to Andrew about how she navigates online spaces and how asking ourselves some hard questions about the way we act online is the beginning of a healthy relationship with social media.
