Sophie Morgan

At 18 years old, Sophie Morgan was in a car crash, and was instantly paralysed from the chest down. Eighteen years on, she is now one of the only TV presenter?s in the world with a physical disability. She?s also an artist and an award-winning disability advocate. Sophie speaks passionately about how adversity influences her life to be filled with more gratitude.


In this chat with Fearne, Sophie talks about how, after her injury, she felt as paralysed by fear as she was by her physical body, but as she adapted to her body, and the inaccessible world around her, she found ways to embrace her situation, to throw herself into physical challenges and test the limits of her ability, so that ultimately she became more alive, more purposefully and more fulfilled in life. She and Fearne also share an admiration for Mexican painting, the icon, Frida Kahlo, and they chat about how art can bring us all back to life.


Sophie?s first book, a powerful and remarkable memoir, that Fearne said ?will change your perspective on life,? called ?Driving Forwards? will be available to buy in hardback, e-book, and as an audiobook from March 17th.

Gabby Bernstein

Do you ever stop and ask what?s driving your behavioural patterns? New York Times bestselling author and self-confessed spiritual junkie Gabby Bernstein has spent the last few years thinking about how traumas from her past were manifesting in the present as workaholism, drug abuse, and alcoholism.

 

In this chat with Fearne, Gabby talks through how we use things like work, substances, or even spirituality to numb parts of ourselves that we don?t want to look at, but that they do serve a purpose in protecting us. She also explains how trauma can lead to us dissociate from, and even erase, memories.

Johnny Marr

There?s bravery in wanting to connect with people in a truly authentic way. Musician Johnny Marr has found that across his career the songs people resonate with most are his most vulnerable, autobiographical tracks. Outside of music, there are lessons to be learnt there about how we might all best connect with each other.


In this chat with Fearne, Johnny explains why it?s more valuable to be an expert than be famous, and why his best creative work often comes in the moments he?s not putting any pressure on himself to write a masterpiece.


Johnny?s new double album ?Fever Dreams Pts 1-4? is out on February 25th, and he'll tour UK arenas with Blondie beginning in April 2022.

Julia Cameron

What would you try if you didn?t have to do it perfectly? Best-selling author, and the ?High Priestess of creativity? Julia Cameron feels perfectionism is a stalling device. When we deny ourselves the right to attempt something, we in turn deny ourselves pleasure and joy.


In this chat with Fearne, Julia explains why jealousy tells you what you really want and care about, and how this can be positively harnessed to shape your future. Plus she talks through non-religious prayer, and how getting in touch with a benevolent higher power ? you might call this God, the universe, or something else ? can help focus your creative mind.


Julia?s new book, Seeking Wisdom: A Spiritual Path to Creative Connection, is out now. 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the publication of her classic The Artist?s Way, which is published by Souvenir Press in the UK.

Dr Pippa Grange

It?s often the case that fear is running the show. Dr Pippa Grange says it?s not always obvious that you?re afraid ? you might be more familiar with the kind of fear you feel in the moment, like taking a driving test or giving a presentation ? but it can in fact sneakily manifest as the chronic fear of not being good enough, and of being rejected.


In this chat with Fearne, psychologist Pippa explains why you have to fail before you succeed. As the woman who supported the England football team during the 2018 World Cup, she explains when it?s important to set performance based goals, and when to let go of thinking you can control the outcome.


Pippa?s book, Fear Less, is out now.

The Happy Pear

Do you find fitness and keeping your body healthy fun? Twins Dave and Steve Flynn ? perhaps better known as The Happy Pear ? love keeping fit in a way that feels like play. They listen to their bodies; they move intuitively. Sometimes that means handstands, sometimes it means yoga, and a lot of the time it means a cold morning swim in the Irish Sea.


In this chat with Fearne, Dave and Steve explain why they feel community is the antithesis of loneliness, as all human beings ultimately have the same needs: to be accepted, seen, and loved. Plus, as fellow vegans, the three discuss getting more vegetables into your diet when you?re time poor.


The Happy Pear?s latest book, The Veg Box, is available to pre-order now.

Ella Mills

Wellness doesn?t have to mean crystals and spirulina. Ella Mills, who?s been synonymous with wellness as the founder of deliciously ella for almost a decade, feels that it needs to be rebranded to encompass super simple principles like sleeping well and breathing calmly. In this chat, Fearne and Ella share stories of the people in their lives who keep them rational and grounded, as well as talking about why it?s probably healthy to accept that women can?t have it all.

Meik Wiking

Some elements of happiness are circumstantial ? where we?re born, and our biology ? but there are many elements that we personally have control over. Meik Wiking is the CEO of the Happiness Research Institute, based in Denmark, and he feels we?d all be happier if we focused more on the smaller choices we can control. That, he explains, is where the Danish art of hygge comes in.

In this chat with Fearne, Meik explores why policy makers would do well to consider the happiness of their country as an important element of national health ? happy citizens are more likely to earn more, less likely need the health service, and more likely to perform random acts of kindness.

Meik?s books, The Little Book of Hygge, The Little Book of Lykke, and The Art of Making Memories are all out now.

Jedidiah Jenkins

Radical vulnerability is something New York Times bestselling author Jedidiah Jenkins does his best to practice with those around him. As he entered his 30s, he travelled from Oregon to Patagonia by bicycle, and the journey turned out to be just as much emotional as it was physical. One of the things he learnt is that vulnerability breeds vulnerability, that once you share your truth, others will feel safe to share their true selves with you too, and that can only be a good thing. 

In this chat, Fearne and Jedidiah explore their own experiences of using disembodying as a coping mechanism during difficult or painful moments in life, as well as what they each believe the soul really is.

Both of Jedidiah?s life-changing books, To Shake The Sleeping Self and Like Streams To The Ocean, are available now.

Billie Piper

We?re beginning to understand that ?having it all? is an unrealistic and stressful goal to work towards. Instead, perhaps we need to be thinking about where to prioritise our energy. Family? Social life? Work? There?s no right or wrong answer, but we do have to be honest with ourselves about how much we can cope with. 

In this chat with Fearne, Billie Piper explains why she?s so passionate about portraying characters who are just as complex on screen as we are in real life. She?s not willing to hide away from tricky emotions, in fact her latest TV work has seen her really lean into pain, with the ultimate goal of making us all feel less alone.
