Jeannie Bourke — healer and beauty lab owner, Venustus

In episode one of Offline, host Alison Rice sets up her podcast by interviewing her healer and Sydney organic beauty lab owner, Jeannie Bourke. Together Alison and Jeannie explore definitions of true self, and the concerns they each have for women living increasingly over-committed and always-connected lives. Are we truly living for ourselves, or to produce a highlight reel for social media?

In episodes to follow, Alison interviews the people behind the Instagram accounts to understand their own definitions of self, and how social media makes them feel. These are raw, imperfect conversations, grounded in reality.
