The joys of being single and our obsession with romantic relationships, with Francesca Specter

This week, Olivia is joined by author, journalist and fellow podcaster Francesca Specter.


Francesca is best known for coining the phrase atonement, which is also the name of her podcast and of her first book.


Atonement is about celebrating the time you spend alone and, as we discuss in the show, Francesca came up with the concept after coming out of a long-term relationship and realising she wasn’t great at being alone.


We talk about why it’s so important to separate this idea of being alone with being single, why society often prioritises romantic relationships above others, and the concept of being alone but together
