My Commute Counterpart. 💁🏼‍♀️🙌🏼

By alissalikesmusic - Aug 13 2019
Read more
Because of traffic, my 20 minute commute home from work typically takes 40 minutes to over an hour. So you can imagine how thankful I was to find Phoebe’s podcast. Since April, I have been listening to her episodes, both new and old, and just recently completed listening to the entire the series. Even though I feel like Phoebe and I are very different people living in very different worlds, we are both the same age, both trying our best to navigate our way through life, and both succeeding and failing at different adventures every day. I’ve enjoyed getting to know Phoebe and her friends throughout the series. Because of her openness, it feels like catching up with old friends each week, and the addition of FFF has been an absolute joy. So YAS QUEEN, keep the LOLs and the jokes coming, and BYE FELICIA to all the haters out there. 👑🙌🏼🎉💖

You guys are great

Thou shalt remember, that mutual understanding is the backbone to every happy relationship

If jumping to conclusions were an Olympic sport, I'd be an unbeatable god damn gold medalist. Like, I'm so good at it, I had enough ridiculous content to dedicate an entire episode to it, which my OG listeners will remember from wayyyy back in season 3... if you missed it, listen here, because it's an absolute clanger. And you know the saddest part? 98% of the times I've jumped to an irrational and uninformed conclusion, it's been about a boy. But because I've realised I get enough exercise from F45 and Reformer Pilates, I've decided it's time to stop jumping and just start asking. Yes, the solution really is as easy as adopting a bit of old fashioned communication. So if you're like me and have spent the better part of your life trying to silently understand the mysterious workings of the male brain to try and make sense of what they're really thinking, this one is dedicated to you...

Sustainability Sunday: Eco-Anxiety

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello my kweens, Happy International Women's Day and welcome back to another Sustainability Sunday episode. You know that I always start the episodes with a little update from my week and this week it was actually a really exciting one. My OG listeners will know that I am beyond obsessed with Botanika Blends protein powder, I literally have it in my oats every single morning and have had for legit the past 12 months. I ordered some online this week and when it arrived, it came in 100% biodegradable packaging which just absolutely made my little heart sing. I honestly don't know what I was more excited about - the fresh kilo of vanilla cake batter protein powder or the packaging that it came in. Either way, snaps to Botanika Blends for jumping on the sustainability bandwagon - they're so nice they've also offered Train Wreck listeners a cheeky little 15% discount when you shop online and use the code phoebe15 at the checkout., which I think is really cool, because going back to a point I made last week, i think a huge part of sustainability lies in consumer behaviour, so by actively choosing to spend your money at places that employ sustainable practices, and turning your back on those that don't, you're putting your money to good use. I'll pop the link and discount code below in this week's show notes, but I just wanted to share that one with you because I get so excited when big brands and brands that I love get involved and play their part. 


So if you tuned in last week you would have caught my chat with Lee Constable. if you missed it, Lee is a television presenter, science communicator, biologist and an author who is best known or her work on channel 10s show Scope. SO last week Lee and I chatted about divestment and the role banking plays into sustainability, which really blew my mind and opened my eyes. And so this week we're chatting about eco-anxiety and how you can make small changes to feel empowered to create change instead of overwhelmed. 


So just on that, while concern around climate change and waste reduction are required to a degree, I mean it does after all take a certain level of concern to then in turn action change - eco-anxiety is an all consuming anxiety about the enormity of the problem, as well as the guilt you might experience for any personal contributions you might be making to the problems. I don't think I have full blown eco anxiety but I do get very overwhelmed with how many things you can change to your life to be more sustainable, but it's very hard to do all of those at the same time. A good example is last week at home I was getting all flustered about buying rubbish bags for the bin because they're plastic and I'm working very very hard on reducing purchasing plastics, and despite the fact that I've made HUGE leway in terms of not using single use plastics of coffee cups etc, using produce bags at the supermarket, taking my keep cup and water bottle everywhere, I had so much guilt about the bin liners, then I reminded myself that you don't have to be perfect and just being 10% better really does help Anyway long story short, I ended up messaging Lottie from Banish and finding out you can buy biodegradable rubbish bags from Coles that are made from cornstarch so went out and bought them straight away and everything is fine again. But it really did make me think about how overwhelmed we can get when trying to be more sustainable.


So without further adieu, let's welcome Lee back to the podcast...

James Smith: Abs & Thighs

Thou shalt remember, to always stay carbo-hydrated...

When it comes to fad diets, I've spoken about them once, twice, 475 times before. Am I starting to sound like a broken record yet? So for those of you who tuned in last week - (whisper - you get a gold star) - you would have heard James Smith PT dishing up some hash tag real talk about the detrimental diet world. And because that hash tag real talk was so good, I decided to come back for seconds, and you all get some too...

If you missed part 1, sort yourself out and listen here... so let's pick up exactly where we left off...

Sustainability Sunday: Sustainable Divestment

Podcast cover
Read more

Hello Dolls, and welcome to another Sustainability Sunday. Can I quickly just say before we get into this weeks episode, that I am absolutely shooketh to my core at the amazing response I've received to these new episodes. I know they're a little bit left of centre and very different to what I normally do, but I am so damn thrilled that you've embraced sustainability in the same way that I have. Not only have you embraced it, but so many of you have joined the conversation and I've been overwhelmed - but in a good way - and all of your messages and tips. Quick shout out to the kween who recommended I watch The War on Waste, which is on ABC iview for those who are interested. I finally got around to it, and might I just say, it is phenom dot com. I was very late to the party, it's not a new series but it's still super interesting and I hope they bring out another season soon. So that's my recommendation for the week. 


So with that, let's get into this weeks episode, which is all about divestment, which basically opens up a conversation around the concept of ethical and sustainable banking. Just as a way of background, if you have no idea what divestment means, it's pretty much the opposite of investment, so you take your money away or stop it from supporting investments you don't believe in, like coal mining and fossil fuels. 


I am obviously no expert when it comes to divestment, so this week, I'm thrilled to welcome another guest who can far better explain it than I can - Lee Cnstable. Lee is a television presenter, science communicator, biologist and now also an author, whose best known for her work as a presenter on Channel 10's show Scope. She's started a youth-run radio show on sustainability and youth justice called SoapBox, has been on the world's largest all women expedition to Antartica and the biggest plot twist is, she's not even 30 yet... I know this will be hard for you to believe after that introduction I just gave, but Lee and I actually have a few things in common...

James Smith: Calories, Calipers & Carbs

Podcast cover
Read more

Thou shalt remember, that if at first you don't succeed, try doing what your personal trainer told you to do the first time... 

When it comes to health and fitness, there's a lot of conflicting information out there. But, plot twist. The loudest noise is usually made by the ones who aren't qualified to even be speaking. One magazine is telling us to go keto, while some chick on instagram is trying to sell us weight loss tea, while our mums are trying to pump us with meat and three veg. 

So after a 10 year long ride on fad diet rollercoaster, I threw caution to the wind and got the hell off. So now, when it comes to nutrition, there's only one person I listen to. He's been dubbed the Gordon Ramsey of the fitness industry, is a Sunday Times best-selling author and travels the world educating with his no bullshit approach to fitness and nutrition, and I was so stoked to sit down with him when he stopped into Brisbane. Yes dolls, I'm talking about the one and only, James Smith, or James Smith PT as he's better known on instagram...

Before we get into today's Sustainability Sunday episode, I just wanted to do a bit of housekeeping to ask whether or not you liked the format of the additional episode. Do you like the shorter more bite sized episodes or would you prefer them to be longer like the normal Train Wreck Tuesday episodes? I actually have some really cool interviews coming up for the next few Sustainability Sunday episodes, which I'm super excited for you to hear, but I just wanted to check in to see that I'm delivering you content in the way you like to consume it. So as always, hit me up on instagram @phoebeacp, or join our closed Train Wreck Podcast Community Facebook group and share your tips and pictures and let's keep the conversation going!

Abbie Chatfield: Bullying, Bachelor & Boys

Podcast cover

Thou shalt remember, to never judge a book by it's cover, and never judge a babe by hers either... 

It's one of the very first lessons we're taught in life, but ironically, it also seems to be one of the very first lessons we forget in life.

But when it comes to judging a book by its cover, no one understands more than Abbie Chatfield. The former bachelor contestant copped an absolute slew of media harassment as well as general public harassment during her time both on and off the show. But as I learned, she is one resilient little chicklet. And you're about to learn it too, because this week, I'm so excited to sit down with the amazing Abbie Chatfield, to talk bachie, bullying and incredible acts of bravery!
