Sex Podcasts

There’s a podcast for everything, meaning, there’s a podcast for everyone. And although I’m no longer driving to work each day (and therefore don’t listen to podcasts as much as I used to), I still try and catch up on my favourite ones.

The Dangers of ‘Neat and Tucked in’

So on a rainy Wednesday in October,…

Impressions and Lessons

Recently, I’ve noticed that the exciting direction my career has taken might have its drawbacks. When dating, conversations around work and career inevitably crop up and when I tell people I’m a writer, they usually want to know of what. And so I tell them.
