In the ninety-sixth episode of The Just Checking In Podcast we checked in with author Fiona Scarlett.
Fiona recently published her first novel ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ which we dive into in this episode.
We discuss the themes it explores including masculinity, grief, brotherhood and fatherhood.
Fiona also works full-time as a teacher. We discuss her teaching journey, the impact that social media has had on the mental health of boys and girls in Gen-Z (including her own children) and the impact that losing her father had on her in December 2020.
As always, #itsokaytovent
