The podcast will feature notable guests such as Tim Minchin, Laura Jane Grace, Lenny Henry, Tim Ferriss, Nadya Tolokonnikova, Dan Savage, Susan Cain, Tim Flannery and KT Tunstall. Amanda will turn the tables on her colleagues and heroes to find out how they create art, love difficult people, work for change and survive the worst moments in their lives.
It's supported entirely by Amanda's fans, with no input from corporate sponsors. Exclusive content is available to her Patrons only.
"One day in my early 40s I looked around and realised that I occupied a very strange social space: I was good friends with both doctors and porn activists, climate scientists and avant-garde writers and musicians," Amanda explains.
"When I began recording these conversations, I realised that I'd accidentally created what I've always yearned for: an excuse to randomly call up really creative and compassionate people, dispense with the superficial chat, and get to the core heart-to-heart discussion about what's important in this life."
The first podcast in the series features author and healer Elizabeth Lesser, who wrote 'Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow', has worked with Oprah Winfrey and done two TED Talks.
