Episode 13

The one about Free Range Humans with Marianne Cantwell [Re-release]

Published on: 11th April, 2024

This week's episode is a re release of one of my most popular episodes from 2019. I am joined by Marianne Cantwell, founder of Free Range Humans, she gave the TEDx Talk "The Hidden Power of Not Always Fitting in" which has been viewed over half a million times, and she is also the author of the bestselling book Be A Free Range Human.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Learning to make decisions that really feel right, rather than being influenced by other people’s expectations and assumptions
  • How your perfect life is going to be radically different from anyone else’s, and the importance of embracing and honouring that
  • How so many entrepreneurs find themselves overworked and miserable, and what to do to avoid that trap
  • How rebelling against something often ends you up in yet another limited box - how to break that cycle and find true freedom 

Plus, we talk about embracing the full spectrum of who you are, trying on ideas for size, and allowing yourself to really experiment until you find what fits.

And, in this week's behind-the-scenes 'The Patron Part about Free Range Humans' I look back at this episode and give you an update 5 years on and 'spill the tea' on what Marianne is up to now.

About the Podcast

Adulting with Ebonie The Podcast
Your weekly dose of introspection and contemplation on what it means and takes to be a conscious, creative adult with a misfit mind.
Adulting with Ebonie is the weekly podcast that brings together Neurodiversity, Human Design and Embodiment so that Gen X or Millennial Misfits (and late-diagnosed Neurospices) become empowered, embodied and fully expressed. Where I actively encourage you to feel your feelings rather than think them, glow up not grow up and become full of yourself, because who the f*ck else should you be full of? Each week I have real and raw conversations about what it takes to be fully resourced and have happy healthy intimate relationships as a dopamine-deficient adult wanting to create a better future by being the change you want to see in the world.
