Rosie Wilby - The Breakup Monologues
Let's get real now, people: love may well be all around us (many thanks to Wet Wet Wet for the constant earworm), but so too are the breakups. Tonnes of them. Join Rosie Wilby, the 'breakup queen', as she shares a few snippets of what she's learned about inevitable endings everywhere.
For our Patreon subscribers at Silver Nib level and up, the extended version of the show contains ‘Shit I Wish I’d Known’ from Rosie’s perspective as a comedian who presents, writes and pods. What's her top tip for navigating an author contract? How does she fund her work? What does she really think about her book's front cover? Hear all about it on the extended NFP cut.
