Our guest today is Sarah Wilson the author of the New York Times bestsellers first, we make the beast beautiful: a new story about anxiety, which Mark Manson described as ‘the best book on living with anxiety that I’ve ever read’, and I Quit Sugar, along with eleven cookbooks that have been published in fifty-two countries. Her latest book, This One Wild and Precious Life, explores the truly overwhelming times in which we’re living. And opens our eyes to how we got here and offers a radically hopeful path forward.
In today’s conversation, I speak to Sarah about the issues she tackles in the book which range from moral asleepness to breaking the cycle of mindless consumption to the power of hiking. She also opens up about her personal fertility journey and the decision to become a foster parent.
Sarah was previously the editor of Cosmopolitan Australia, host of MasterChef Australia and founder of iquitsugar.com, an 8-week program that has seen millions worldwide break their sugar addiction. In May 2018, Sarah committed to giving all proceeds from the business to charity. She now builds and enables charity projects that engage humans with one another, and campaigns on mental health, consumerism, racial injustice, and climate issues. Sarah lives in Sydney, is an obsessive hiker and spent eight years travelling the world with one bag – and it’s during these hikes that she wrote her newest book.
