  • 25 - Angourie Rice On The Real-Life Mean Girls

    When Australian actress Angourie Rice was cast in the starring role in the much-anticipated Mean Girls remake - she had no idea the backlash and personal criticism that would come her way. 

    Meanwhile, her mum, Kate, who was also an actress, had a very different time within the industry and has used her experience to ensure Angourie remains grounded and finds happiness. 

    In this chat, we speak to both Angourie and Kate about what it was like to grow up in the public eye, her fears of the industry, and if big Hollywood roles and fame make someone truly happy.

    In this chat, he talks about success, creativity, being diagnosed with autism and ADHD as an adult, and what living in Hollywood has taught him about happiness.

  • 23 - The Moment That Made Me Ask: Is This Podcast A Mistake?

    What do we mean when we talk about happiness? And, is there a genuine way to experience more of it, especially in a time where it feels so flippant or out of reach?

    These are the questions we wanted to ask happiness expert Dr Tim Sharp (he's literally Dr Happy). And even though he specialises in positive psychology, Dr Happy knows how difficult it is to feel joy when the state of the world is so ugly.

    So, what can he tell us about our expectations of happiness? Is it a worthy pursuit, or are we asking the wrong question on this podcast?
