Good Influence / Elizabeth Day on Failure

Listen on

Episode notes

Welcome back to Good Influence! This is the podcast where each week we'll meet a guest who’ll help us pay attention to something we should know about, but maybe don’t.    This week, we're talking about failure; how our cultural conversations around failure have changed, the failures we relate to the most, and how perspectives on failure from older people can teach us lessons while we're young.  Elizabeth Day is an author, journalist and broadcaster. She hosts the hugely popular podcast 'How to Fail with Elizabeth Day', in which she examines life's supposed failures with her guests and reflects on how these failures affect change us. Her latest novel, Magpie, is out on the second of September and has been described as a tense, twisting story of jealousy, motherhood and power.  If you want to learn more, here's where to find Elizabeth and her recommendations:  Instagram: @elizabday Twitter: @elizabday Website:   Something to read: Magpie - Elizabeth Day / Educated - Tara Westover Something to watch: Netflix's 'The Last Dance' Something to listen to: 'We Can Do Hard Things' Podcast with Glennon Doyle / with 'Where Should We Begin' Podcast with Esther Perel   Get involved and join in the conversation: Follow @gemmastyles @goodinfluencegs and send in your messages and questions to [email protected]
