In episode 4 I chat to Colin, who preferred not to give his real name - he’s a teacher from the UK, and is just coming up to 34.
He emailed me after listening to the podcast and I’m really glad he did, because our chat was really different to my first three shows.
Where those conversations were mostly about career, Colin’s was almost entirely about his personal life and how when he was younger he really thought he’d have a wife and kids by now.
This was a completely different perspective on the pressures of growing up past your 20s and one I hadn’t had the chance to properly think about.
During our chat he made quite a few powerful statements about how his relationship situation affects him, and how these feelings are also tied into other key events in his life.
