Episode 332 is with artist and author Sophie Hardcastle (@sophie_hardcastle).

Sophie has been on the podcast before (ep190 – listen here) and when she reached out to let me know that her new fiction book Below Deck was coming out, I knew I had to get her on again. ⁠Set at sea, her new book speaks to the blurry lines of consent.

Sophie and I first spoke in 2017 after she had just released her second novel Breathing Underwater and we talked in depth about her memoir Running Like China which chronicles her struggle with coming to terms with her own mental illness and life with a brain that operates differently than others.⁠

Sophie is a strikingly smart young woman and a powerful storyteller, I am so grateful she took the time to have this conversation with me. ⁠

Enjoy the show.⁠ LISTEN HERE.
