In the aftermath of a bruising battle, he despaired at how divided society had become, but also came to realise something fundamental was missing from his own life. Outwardly he was still achieving, with an impressive career; but he realised he'd never felt comfortable in his own skin. Life had always felt more of a grind than a gift – he'd always believed that if he only worked harder, he'd find fulfilment. Now he realised that wasn't the case. Like many others during Lockdown, he asked himself why he'd always had a constant feeling of unease and discontent? He wondered what wise people had to say about how we can live better.

    Thoroughly recommend this Pod. A reminder that “life” is complicated. Very thought provoking and helpful in gaining perspective. And some great words of wisdom along the way.

  • How to agree to disagree

    I always look forward to Craig’s podcast. I really enjoyed the episode with David Baddiel. I think you could say he has strong opinions and Craig skilfully challenged some of the ideas in his book in a very thoughtful and respectful way whilst still championing the book. Also David appeared to deeply listen back to him too. He said he was a child but no - he’s a grown up 😊
