5 Favourite Ctrl, Alt, Delete Podcasts

Ever since I discovered Emma Gannon’s Ctrl Alt Delete podcasts a couple of weeks ago, I have done nothing else but listen to Emma Gannon’s Ctrl Alt Delete podcasts. Emma chats to her guests about the internet, social media, feminism, creativity, identity, mental health, life, careers and everything in between.  I have found them to be ideal for a quick boost of inspiration, motivation and creativity. I listen to them in the bath, at the gym, on the train, when I wake up, before I go to sleep, all the time really. So I thought I would share with you 5 of my favourites (so far) – there is still tons of awesomeness for me to discover so I am sure there will be a part two!

CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #110 Jayne Hardy (On Self-Care)

In this episode Emma talks to Jayne Hardy the founder of The Blurt Foundation – A little movement that says, “I understand”, “I’m listening” and “I’m here for you”. It helps those who are affected by depression to feel supported whilst creating positive social change. At the height of Jayne’s illness she was unable to work, leave the house or even undertake the most basic acts of self-care – she lost a tooth because she didn’t feel worthy enough to clean them. She talks about her new book The Self Care Project – how to let go of frazzle and make time for you. Listen to the episode here.

CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #107 Lucy Sheridan (On Social Media Comparison)

Lucy Sheridan is the worlds first and only Comparison Coach. She encourages people of all walks of life to go from compare and despair to #comparisonfree. She helps people to stop comparing themselves to others (especially on social media) and aims to boost self-confidence and self-esteem. In this very honest chat, Emma and Lucy discuss openly: when *you’re* the trigger for someone else’s comparison, online mental health, and setting your own personal and professional boundaries. Lucy has co-written a book called #HigherSelfie: Wake Up Your Life. Free Your Soul. Find Your Tribe,  a modern guide to love, healing and connection. Listen to the episode here.

CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #84 Chloe Brotheridge (On Anxiety)

I enjoyed reading Chloe Brotheridge’s book The Anxiety Solution so was keen to listen to this podcast. As well as an author, Chloe is a fully trained hypnotherapist who helps people with anxiety, confidence, public speaking, stress, weight loss and sleep issues. In this interesting episode, Emma and Chloe discuss how anxiety is on the rise, how we deal with it, what to do when we feel overwhelmed and our relationship with social media. Listen to the episode here.

CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #83 Vanessa Van Edwards (On How To Be Liked)

Vanessa Van Edwards is the author of Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People. I enjoyed this one as Vanessa is a researcher of human behavior and I do like a bit of sciencey stuff. Vanessa designs original research experiments to crack the code of human behavior. She doesn’t believe there are boring people, just individuals afraid to expose who they really are. Emma and Vanessa discuss social anxiety, worry, first impressions and how to be memorable. Listen to the episode here.

CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #60 Grace Victory (On Confidence)

The best thing about Ctrl Alt Delete is that Emma finds all the influential and inspiration people and brings them to you. Grace Victory is a blogger, YouTuber, TV Presenter and was awarded Most Inspiring Role Model by InStyle Magazine. In this chat, Emma and Grace speak openly about bullying, anxiety and body image. Her book No Filter is out now which shares Graces’ inspirational story of growing up in a troubled household, battling with depression and finally overcoming it all by learning to love herself just as she was. Listen to the episode here.

    I haven’t heard of these before – I don’t really listen to podcasts but I’ve heard so many people talk about how great they are. I may have to look into these and listen to a few and see what I’ve been missing out on with not listening to podcasts! The #83 with Vanessa Van Edwards does sound interesting!


    • February 6, 2018 / 8:05 am

      Thanks for the comment Amy! 💖 I’ve only recently got into listening to podcasts and was amazed how much you can learn in such a short space of time ☺️. Hope you enjoy! 😘 xx

  2. February 5, 2018 / 5:11 pm

    I don’t ever listen to podcasts, in fact I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a podcast in my life but I absolutely love the sound of these and they’re all about topics I’d love to know more about. Especially the Grace Victory one as I watch her on YouTube and really admire her! Thanks for this post and the recommendations! xxx

    • February 6, 2018 / 8:08 am

      Thanks Jenny! 💖 I was exactly the same until a couple of weeks ago! I’ve only just discovered Grace Victory through the podcast and she sounds like an awesome inspirational lady 😘 xx

    • February 6, 2018 / 8:11 am

      Thank you for the recommendation Alisha! 💖 I have a list of podcasts to check out so will definitely be adding that one 😘 xx

    I’ve never listened to this podcast but I love the idea of the one on social media comparison. Might have to listen to that one on my next run (yes I choose to listen to them when I run, that’s probably a bit odd?) x


    • February 6, 2018 / 8:13 am

      That’s a good time to listen to them I think ☺️. I play them at the gym as it’s probably better than watching rubbish on the TV 🙈. Hope you enjoy, the social media comparison one is really interesting. Thanks for the comment Sophie 😘 xx

    I don’t listen to podcasts, but this sounds so inspiring, and the guests seem incredible.

    How have I never heard of this podcast series before?! I have recently been listening to a lot of podcasts as I enjoy having something to focus my mind on when I’m out for a jog, and this series sounds like something I should really get into! Grace Victory’s episode sounds absolutely brilliant, she’s such an inspirational woman with a fantastic message! Vanessa Van Edward’s episode on social anxiety sounds like it would be a great listen as well, social anxiety is something that I experience so it can only be a good thing to educate myself more!

    I’d never heard of these before, but they sound great! Especially the one about going comparison free, I can’t even imagine what that would be like…


    • February 6, 2018 / 8:18 am

      The comparison free episode was very interesting! It’s more common than we think ☺️. Thanks so much for the comment Polly 💖 xx

    I’ve not heard of any of these but then I don’t listen to podcasts. The only chance I would get would be in the car but Flora would not be impressed! They do look interesting though, maybe I need to start investigating the podcast world – I know where to come for advice now 😉 xx

    This post is like it was meant to be! I’ve recently gotten into the Crl Alt Delete podcast (actually featured it in my latest favourites post) and have been trying to catch up. I now know exactly where to look for inspiration! I just listened to the one on comparison today, funnily enough, so I think the one on anxiety might be next 🙂

    You always find some of the best stuff! I think podcast should come in handy especially when you’re working and need a boost so it’s lovely that his one is so inspiring. I like that she finds uplifting people to tackle prevalent matters on the rise because things like anxiety NEED to be talked about more especially in this generation with the constant pressures imposed on us to be a certain way by a certain age. I also love Grace and all her stories. And I find hypno therapy so mind boggling! Thanks for sharing gorgeous! 💕🌹
