Highly recommend this podcast. Elizabeth’s interviewing style is just great - she knows when to pause and let the interviewee speak, very like Graham Norton. My favourites are Mo Gowdat, Jamie Dornan(died laughing), Graham Norton and so many more. The recent one with Stanley Tucci is...Read full review »

One of my favourite podcasts, Elizabeth day is a brilliant interviewer, she clearly researches and listens to her guests and engages in a natural conversation. Excellent guest too!
Silkybean via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/21/21
Having previously enjoyed episodes of this show, (especially Tom Kerridge) I was really disappointed to hear the Ed Miliband episode. His first failure was listed as a failure to get a first at Oxford. Me too, as the saying goes. But then like many people, I failed to get there in the first...Read full review »

I love all your guests, Elizabeth Day, and think the format is brilliant. This podcast with Jacqueline really gave me a lift! Both my grown-up sons loved and still have her books! I felt completely drawn into her life-story and her career and I admire her energy, outlook and optimism whilst...Read full review »

I never review anything but Elizabeth Day is so uplifting. I have just ordered my copy of Magpie and can’t wait to read it.

I have recently discovered the show and have become an immediate addict.

A huge thanks to Chimamanda and Elizabeth for the bonus episode - so real and moving. So much courage shown in the rawness of grief. Spoke to my own situation so profoundly. Thank you both so much
hmpilk1 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/12/21
I love Elizabeth Day’s podcast hosting/interviewing style, she’s so interesting as she is but manages to bring on interesting and introspective guests. Never fail to be surprised by the range of guests and by how deep Elizabeth delves into their lives.
Lozzieewozziee via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/06/21
So many interesting and inspiring stories. I really enjoy listening to this podcast. Everyone needs to learn more about what it means to fail.
5and20 blackbird via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/04/21
Love the idea behind this and Elizabeth has such a diverse range of guests on the podcast. The conversations are truly illuminating and I’ve learned a lot that I can apply to my own life and the way I think about certain topics. Revisiting older episodes now and looking forward to new ones.

I’m not great with podcasts for many reasons but when I got diagnosed with burnout this year (thanks Covid and ridiculous workload!) I had time on my hands. Discovering this podcast has changed my way of thinking, my approach to failure and honestly I’m not sure I would have recovered without it....Read full review »

I am fairly late to the podcast party, but discovering Elizabeth has been joyous - I’ve just listened to Elizabeth and Dolly - it was like eavesdropping on Two totally Real and Wonderful Humans - I salute you
Amandabugs via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/20/21
I discovered Elizabeth Day when she went to the Diary of the CEO podcast from Steven Bartlett and I absolutely love her since! Her podcast “how to fail “ is refreshing and give you a new perspective of seeing how things did not go as plan. Love her energy and enthusiasm. Great podcast that I...Read full review »

Wow, what an amazing, inspiring, positive woman. A real tale of triumph over adversity. Lots of takeaways from this episode and great quotes to live your life by. I love this podcast keep up the good work Elizabeth and more guests like Martine please. Thanks Nicky
NickyG123987 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/15/21
Elizabeth Day’s interviews are pure artistry. Delightful and self-deprecating in equal measure, she always strikes the perfect balance between sensitive, inquisitive and humorous. I’m yet to listen to a guest and not enjoy it!
Louloutte1310 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/14/21
I’ve listened to Elizabeth for several seasons, and I absolutely love this podcast. It is without doubt the one I return to time and time again.

As always these podcasts are brilliant but the Martine Wright podcast was inspiring and heartbreaking. Beautiful acknowledgement to an obviously fabulous lady.
JoPo2021 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/09/21
What a refreshing podcast! The interview questions are thoughtful and interesting. The one with Gloria Steinem was pure joy! Many popular podcast interviewers make the mistake of dominating the discussion by not engaging the interviewee more. I don’t see that here and it’s great!
RV519 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/21
Elizabeth you are an incredible host, the thought & compassion in your interview style is honestly the best out there (and I listen to a LOT of podcasts).

What a fabulous interview with Christie Watson. How eloquent, charming, funny ( to name a few descriptions) she is, as you are Elizabeth. I cannot wait to read her books. I look forward to your podcasts with excitement and impatience! Stéphanie. X

Fabulous to listen to the reflections of a huge group of people; so many walks of life so many experience ! Ace

These episodes are insightful, interesting and reassuring! It’s helpful to hear stories from people in the public eye who have worked through “failure” and grown through it. Worth a listen.
ilovefridays via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/30/21
The Graham Norton episode 1 of Season 11 is a breath of fresh air and very funny as you’d expect.
Hellie12 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 06/29/21
I’m working my way through these episodes and loving them! Elizabeth Day has the knack of teasing great stories and life insights from her guests. Interesting, insightful, thought-provoking and entertaining.
Dottydesigner via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/27/21
I love this podcast as it’s failure on the way to success. Lemn Sissay’s story was intense and heart-rending, others are lighter and inspirational. Just listening to Marian Keyes interview was interesting. How many people feel like ‘outsiders’? It seems most of the over-achievers fall into this...Read full review »
