For our 40th podcast we’re sharing a catch-up between two old friends, Clare Bowditch and Dumbo Feather publisher Berry Liberman. As part of her national tour to promote her debut book your own kind of girl, Clare visited Byron Bay and made space for this talk.
Only two friends catching up could pack this much love, honesty, tears and laughter into half an hour. In the process of writing her book, Clare has confronted the pain and suffering of her 20s, burdened by a deep sense that she didn’t deserve to be happy and coming to terms with the loss of a loved one.
A book recommended to her by a family friend explained her mental suffering in a way she could process and provided a coping mechanism. Her recovery and the moments of respite granted her the permission to be courageous. And she hasn’t stopped. Enjoying her second bite at life.
The podcast is bookended with two beautiful songs performed by Clare.
This edited conversation was produced by Lizzie Marton and the music you hear is by Dennis Liu.
