Three Sixty Conversations with Nicola Washington on the everyday joys of the ordinary
Welcome to episode 21! Today I am chatting with Nicola Washington. Nicola is a writer and social media consultant for small businesses.
If you are not connected with Nicola via social media you will have heard me talk about her and link her work in previous podcast episodes as I have a real crush on her brain! You can check out some of her work here.
In this episode Nicola and I discuss equality and activism. We delve into anti-discrimination, White privilege, equality and the need for people to turn their ego down and their humanity up so that we can dismantle oppressive systems. We also chat about the beauty of the ordinary and why everyday joy trumps happiness.
