If you see one person saying ‘You can do this’, you’re opening up a possibility for someone.

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to leave star and written reviews on itunes. This is a great help for others finding the podcast! You can add yours, here, too. 

In today's podcast interview, I’m in conversation with Rachael Lucas, an established author, mother and champion for Autism awareness. I loved Rachael instantly when I stumbled upon her on Twitter and we struck up that kind of online friendship that is nourishing, giggling and supportive. One day, a month or two ago, Rachael shared an article by Kit De Waal entitled 'Make Room for Working Class Writers'. 

Kit’s piece resonated, deeply, in a way I found surprising and Rachael and I got chatting a fair amount about our experiences growing up. We decided to switch the mic on and let you join us for that chat. This is the result. 

I hadn’t realised that I was a working class person because I didn’t fit the stereotype that was being depicted by the upper middle class people in publishing
