In the forty-first episode of the Just Checking In Podcast, we spoke to journalist Natalie Morris.
Natalie is Senior Lifestyle Writer for the Metro UK.
In this pod we discussed Natalie’s journalism journey, breaking into the industry as a black woman, her series ‘Mixed-Up’ and the emotional and mental toll that reporting on COVID-19 and the recent George Floyd protests against police brutality and racism has had on her.
We also discussed her mental health journey, her experiences of health anxiety, moving from her hometown Manchester to London to achieve her writing ambitions and her love of netball!
As always, #itsokaytovent
