Episode 3: The Stories We Tell Ourselves
In this episode I talk about:
•Life in Italy and an unexpected zucchini recipe from Ferdinando the pharmacist.
•Where the stories that we tell ourselves come from.
•How these stories inform our beliefs, behaviours and actions.
•What Darwin really meant when he said ‘survival of the fittest’.
•What a ‘new story’ might include.
•And good news for biodiversity and the people of Madrid.
