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 anxiety and life online; how social media has evolved, speaking openly about Mental health and the pros and cons of doing so, and being nosy into other people’s lives.
Zoe Sugg is vlogger, influencer, author and business woman, who you may know as Zoella. Zoe is one of the original YouTubers, has been sharing content online for the last 12 years, and has amassed over 25 million followers and subscribers across her social media platforms.
