Good Influence - Coming Soon

Welcome to Good Influence with Gemma Styles! 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. So if you want to learn more about climate change, therapy, food waste, sustainable fashion, mental health and so much more, now you have a place to start. Get involved and join in the conversation: Follow @gemmastyles and send in your messages and questions to goodinfluencepod@gmail.com  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
