Are you looking to reinvent yourself in the wake of the global pandemic? Do you want to change everything in your life? Or just get better at grabbing the good bits? Hosted by writer and comedian Viv Groskop, this is a series of intimate conversations about managing change, assessing risk, switching jobs, tweaking habits, handling disaster and finding joy. It’s time to get real about reshaping our lives.
Why are you so busy? Author Katherine May and Jane Lindsay of creative community Snapdragon Life talk to Viv Groskop about using busy-ness as anaesthetic, as distraction, as armour. They talk about making a business built on connection, not consumerism. They talk about drawing strength and purpose from times of difficulty. They talk about hibernating dormice, swimming in ice cubes and taking life advice from seagulls.
Katherine’s book, Wintering: How I learned to flourish when life became frozen is out now.

Viv’s books, including Au Revoir Tristesse: Lessons in Happiness from French Literature and Lift As You Climb: Women and the Art of Ambition are also out now.
