The A Playful Day podcast explores everyday life, creativity and identity. On the podcast I share stories with featured guests, as well as musings on life and moments that define us. Above all, there is always a through line of creativity. From the very start, A Playful Day has been somewhere to collect thoughts and document things that bring us inspiration and strength. If we could sit and share coffee for an hour together, this is what it might sound like. 

Like what you hear? 

(Think of this as a virtual coffee fund to keep me recording stories for you xx)

The APD Podcast: In Conversation with Alexandra Cameron

Today, I’m sharing a conversation with Alexandra Cameron, a photographer based here in the UK whose work I discovered in 2017 and instantly fell in love with. She shares beautiful images but also powerful captions that explore issues really central to the experience of feeling like a woman and being a woman. I was hooked.

The APD Podcast: In Conversation with Ani Lee

In this first interview since the relaunch of the podcast, I'm sharing a conversation with teacher and podcaster, Ani Lee. You can find Ani online as Close Knit, a catch all term that she uses to encompass her teaching and creative pursuits. In this conversation we touch on body image, shame, privilege, using creative pursuits to process emotions, intersectionality, activism vs self care, and how Ani is trying to navigate her way between noticing struggles that need to be fought whilst not being paralysed by it.
