Otegha Uwagba on how Instagram fuels self-doubt more than a catwalk

This week, we’re joined by Sunday Times bestselling author Otegha Uwagba to discuss how she left the systemic racism and misogyny of the corporate world to pursue a career in writing.

We discuss everything from the paralysis of writer’s block, to how doom-scrolling on social media impacts body image.

We also discuss all things fashion, the problem with Saltburn, and if 17 minutes is an appropriate length for a voicenote.

Catch Love Lives on Independent TV and YouTube, as well as all major social and podcast platforms.
