Discovering what makes us human, exploring important life hacks, and "how to be", whilst highlighting the most important intersectional nonfiction books our there. The How To Be...Books Podcast looks at improving mental health and wellbeing, as well as creating social change through reading and interviewing mind-blowing authors.
Have you ever thought why is it that my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances can do so much more than me? Well if you have, you're not alone. From confidence, persistence, motivation, to resilience - these life skills can help us go a long way in believing in ourselves. Not to mention, we live in a polarised world where conversations have broken down, so we've opened a space for those difficult chats.
We will try examine the tips and guides out there to see if it can help. Whilst I am no expert by any means, I have lived experience of feeling different and misunderstood, so hopefully we can take this path of enhancement together. PS. I do not receive commission for the books and guides reviewed.

When the high tide reaches Venice, four sirens are sounded to warn the population of the incoming danger. Each one of them represents a growing level of emergency, the level of the rising water. Yet there was no sound after the last siren, nothing to prepare venetians for the level of destruction the 2019 storm brought to town. This is how The Fifth Siren was born. Venice becomes the nexus where many global crises come together - environmental, cultural, social, technological. We aim to alert and explore what is beyond it: the many challenges we have to confront when facing an unknown future. The podcast has been produced by Fill Productions with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute in London and Banor Capital.

Book Podcasts

A great way to understand and find a new opinion or persepective on the book you are reading is by listening to book podcasts! We all know that reading is a solitary activity, but it doesn't have to be. In fact, many of us love nothing more than talking about our favorite books with fellow book lovers. That's why book podcasts have become so popular.

With so many book podcasts out there, it can be hard to find one that really stands out. The truth is, the books podcasts genre is in need of some serious innovation. Author interviews can be inspiring, but let's face it, they often turn into the same old conversations about the writing process and book promotion. And too many shows feature the same guests promoting the same books.
