Six months ago my friend linked me to an interview with British entrepreneur and troublemaking activist Clare Dubois because he reckoned “she talks your language, Sarah”. I was moved to my viscera from the moment she launched her gloriously, inspired riff.
Clare talks a profoundly wild idea that resonates for me: We are about to send ourselves, as a species, extinct. No one is going to come and save us, but trees might just.
Clare is a business coach and founder of the Treesisters...

In this conversation we explore accessing mania as part of the creative process, not having to be broken to be...
Dr Jud Brewer is a New York-based surfer (yep!) and psychiatrist and neuroscientist specialising in habit change and he's helped thousands of people quit smoking and overcome binge eating. But his latest research treats anxiety like it's any other habit.

In this chat we unpack one of my own gnarly, ugly anxious thoughts (bit exposing!) using Jud's three-step...
I discovered Jill’s story in her viral TED Talk from 2008 (it became the most watched TED talk ever!) in which the brain scientist describes watching the left side of her brain deteriorate over the course of four hours on the morning of her stroke and how she used her right brain to stay present and get help.
I was transfixed. Ever since I’ve wondered, what ever happened to Jill Bolte Taylor? Did she go back to normal? Is she still living in her right brain and able to experience the...
