Dear 21 Year Old Me

We go back in time to the year our guest turned 21. Our guest then talks about their 21st birthday, and what the world was like when they were 21. We then reflect on what they thought being 21 would be like, what life has been like since, some lessons and sliding door moments – and ask what they’d say to their 21-year old self now. 

Hosted by Jeremy Irvine. Edited by Darcy Milne, Pro Podcast Production.
