Having set her sights on the West End growing up, Lucy’s travel experiences helped her uncover a passion for sharing stories. She left her home city of Dublin to study journalism at the University of Kent and is currently pursuing her dream of podcasting full-time whilst also continuing to be a freelance journalist.
I had so much chatting with Luce! In our wide-ranging conversation, we discuss what Gonzo journalism taught her about celebrity endorsements vs influencer endorsements; how to grow an online community; Lucy’s key learnings to date from her podcast guests; and so much more!
