Hiya pals, welcome back to The Plus Side Podcast! *jazz hands*
This weeks episode with feel-good powerhouse Sam Mason covers an area I think we can all relate to, at least on some level. Sam is a mum of 2, a highly demanded hairstylist and a social media strategist who has worked on a number of campaigns relating to a topic very close to her own heart: body neutrality. From a young age Sam’s body has been insensitively open for discussion – and it’s only from piecing together the lovely parts of her that make Sam Sam, that she has realised what matters in life.
