Martha Beck (Replay): Why You Should Tell The Truth

Martha Beck (Replay): Why You Should Tell The Truth

Hello and welcome back to Ctrl Alt Delete. This is a replay episode (recorded in 2021) with brilliant Martha Beck, a return guest! I wanted to invite her back on, to talk about her book The Way Of Integrity. Martha Beck, if you didn’t already know, is a Harvard-trained sociologist, world-renowned coach and New York Times bestselling author. She has published nine non-fiction books, one novel, and more than 200 magazine articles. The Way of Integrity is her new book all about being your full undivided self, coming back to your true nature, it's about not telling lies to yourself or others. Martha tells us about integrity cleanses, something that started years ago when she decided to not tell a single lie for a year. I love Martha’’s work because it's sort of science meets spooky; so much scientific data and spiritual stuff also. It’s also the first self-help book based on Dante's Inferno and It’s brilliant. I loved the episode, definitely go grab a copy of the book!

Meg Mason (Replay): From Almost Binning Her Book, To Bestseller

Meg Mason (Replay): From Almost Binning Her Book, To Bestseller

This was recorded in 2021. My guest today is Meg Mason, author of several books including the recent instant Sunday Times bestseller Sorrow and Bliss. She began her career at the Financial Times and The Times of London and has been a regular columnist for GQ, ELLE and Vogue. I absolutely loved Sorrow & Bliss and reached out to Meg's team as soon as I finished reading it. The quote on the cover from Anne Patchett says: ‘'I was making a list of all the people I wanted to send it to, until I realised that I wanted to send it to everyone I know’ which is how I feel having gifted it to a few friends because I just want everyone to read it so I can talk more about it. It’s a Gen X coming of age, mental health love story that will rip you apart and piece you back together. This was a real treat getting to chat to Meg, I hope you enjoy this chat!

Genelle Aldred (Replay): How To Communicate Like a Pro

Genelle Aldred (Replay): How To Communicate Like a Pro

This episode was recorded in 2021. Genelle Aldred, newsreader, communication expert, and now author who has worked as a journalist at many of the UK largest broadcasting organisations for over a decade, including BBC, ITV and ITN. In this episode we discuss her debut book Communicate for Change: Creating Justice in a World of Bias unpicking some of its fascinating themes: how to make a positive difference, how to think for yourself, how to have better conversations and how to recognise our own biases and blind spots. This book encouraged me to ask better questions and question my own assumptions, breaking away from singular narratives and monolithic thinking. Hope you enjoy this conversation about how it’s OK to agree to disagree in conversation and how it’s important to not shy away from other peoples truth in order to see how other people around us think. Here is the episode with Genelle! Grab a copy of Genelle's book here: https://uk.bookshop.org/a/153/9780281085576My Substack page, come and say hi: https://thehyphen.substack.com/My books: https://uk.bookshop.org/contributors/emma-gannonBooks mentioned on Ctrl Alt Delete podcast: https://uk.bookshop.org/lists/books-mentioned-on-ctrl-alt-delete-podcastTwitter: Twitter.com/emmagannonInstagram: Instagram.com/emmagannonuk Hosted on Acast.
