The Solo Collective
By Rebecca Seal
Whether you work for yourself, or by yourself, the Solo Collective is here to make things a little bit easier. Working alone can be hard, and comes with its own challenges. The Solo Collective is a podcast about dealing with those challenges: we want to make solo working better for everyone.
Hosted by Rebecca Seal, the bestselling author of 'Solo - How to Work Alone and Not Lose Your Mind', the Solo Collective is a podcast series is designed to help solitary workers do so happily.
Now on season three, Rebecca has spoken to experts and well-known solo workers from around the world, to find out how we can all thrive while working alone. Previous guests include Dr Laurie Santos (from Yale and host of The Happiness Lab podcast), Emma Gannon (host of Ctrl-Alt-Delete podcast), Henry Holland (Fashion Designer), Bruce Daisley (work expert and host of Eat Sleep Work Repeat), Shahroo Izadi (behaviour change expert and author of the Kindness Method), and Anna Sale (host of the award-winning podcast Death, Sex and Money and author of Let's Talk About Hard Things).
The new six-part season will feature conversations with the writer Oliver Burkeman (Author of Four Thousand Weeks: Time and How To Use It) and Madeleine Dore (from Extraordinary Routines and author of I Didn't Do The Thing Today) among others.
We cover everything from anxiety to imposter syndrome, money to home-office design, productivity myths to how to take work less seriously, networking to how to cope with work when your family are all in the building too. We're glad to have you here with us.
