Sunday

Diary of a Woman on a Bike: Eleanor Suggett has ridden her bike most days for just over two years. What began as a mere means of commuting soon grew into an obsession. Her diary charts the ups and downs of her journey on two wheels.
Making The Tea: Sally Buttifant talks about sexism in the workplace.

What if?: Kate Hutchinson was born in 1970 in a hospital in the north of England, whoever delivered her took one look at the new born baby and decided there and then that she was a boy.  She lived for a long time dealing with the consequences of that decision. Tackling self doubt, uncertainty and fear to gain empowerment, confidence and the ability to reach her potential while finding her truth are some of the things Kate talks about in her WOW bite.
Whychcraft: Ayesha Tan-Jones talks about the importance of reconnection back to nature, our spirit and lost wisdom through art, music and magic.
