I had a wonderful talk with Chris Reese and Helen Hillix of Inner Revolutionary Radio. They asked some incredibly thoughtful questions, and connected the dots between my work and empathy and capitalism.
My activism has been rubbing off on my husband.

Give it a listen and get inspired.

They’re planning a festival in Ibiza this summer and it’s on my to-visit list!
