The Becoming Podcast is a weekly chat, each focused on one of twelve of my favourite women. We discuss their rites of passage - their becoming. From becoming through single parenting, body image, books, sexual liberation, memoir writing, and mastering personal finance, to depression and setting up businesses and finding a sense of self at work - we all have a story. And I can't wait to talk about them.
The incredible music for The Becoming Podcast is from Charlotte Carpenter. "Am I Alone In This" is taken from her forthcoming EP, "How Are We Ever To Know".
