Shownotes

In the final episode of the series we chat to Terri White the former editor of Empire magazine and Time Out New York, about her first book, Coming Undone. The book is a brutally honest and moving memoir about her breakdown in New York and how her early life experiences shaped where she is today, both professionally and personally. 

Terri is currently a freelance journalist writing for a range of publications and has a column in the Sunday Times. We pick her brains about choosing to go freelance for a better work/ life balance and how journalism today is affected by a lack of class diversity.
