Podcast: Calling All Goddesses with Holly Wainwright

This week Cheryl is joined by bestselling author, journalist and editor Holly Wainwright to discuss her latest release How To Be Perfect – a page-turning, rip-roaring story about mums, phones and the cult of self-improvement. Together they discuss the pressures that modern women are faced with, and the way in which ‘wellness’ culture has taken over our lives (and our Instagram feeds).

But her ex-husband is building a financial cult in the shed, Elle is looming and her teenage daughter's YouTube channel is gaining followers for all the wrong reasons. The wedding might have to wait.FRANCES GRAHAM has a colicky newborn, an absent husband and a WhatsApp Mothers' Group that's giving her anxiety. But she's certain that if she can just be more like those fitmums on Instagram, things can only get better. And surely, if she can scrape enough money together to make it to Elle's retreat, everything in her life will be just . . . perfect.Through a world of fake gurus, green smoothies and bad influencers, How to Be Perfect follows Elle, Abi and Frankie into the cult of self-improvement that's taking over your phone . . . and your breakfast.

                    Hi
                    I wanted to hear what Holly Wainwright had to say but the interviewer continually inserted her views and spoke over her. This podcast could have been interesting if it had been about Holly’s book and ideas, but Cheryl’s interview style didn’t let her guest shine.

                  2. Janette Daniel says:

                    I enjoyed the podcast – the two options from slightly different perspectives. I haven’t read any of Holly’s books. But I have a daughter (also Holly) and daughter-in-law that I think will benefit from these books. I shall be looking out for them on my next trip to the bookshop. Cheers Jan
