Daisy Buchanan
Play • 46 min

It’s the SEASON FINALE! Meeting Daisy Buchanan earlier this year for this recording felt strangely familiar. I’ve been reading Daisy’s wonderful words for years, and when she arrived at my flat it felt like she had leapt straight out of the page: thoughtful, funny and with superhuman levels of emotional intelligence.


In this episode – the season finale for first ever Alonement series – we discuss everything from the trap of people pleasing to the difference between a drain and a radiator (don’t know what I’m talking about? Keep listening!).


We also reflect on Daisy’s happiest solo memories, and how she’s used the love languages theory to help connect with her husband Dale (forgive the part where we BOTH draw a blank over naming the fifth love language – which is, of course, quality time!).


Below, I’ve listed the wonderful cultural references peppered through this interview by Daisy.


I’d like to thank each and every one of you lovely listeners for tuning in to the podcast. I can’t thank you enough for your support and kind words over the last couple of months – I can’t wait to share the second series with you all! In the mean time, if you’d like to leave an Apple Podcasts review to let me know what you thought that would be appreciated so much.


Bye for now – and see you all on the other side. Stay healthy and happy!


***UPDATE*** Daisy's brilliant debut novel, Insatiable, is now out – buy it now from Waterstones and all good booksellers.
