Ep 030: Reviewing 2018

Welcome to a bumper episode of My Pocket Psych. We’ve got a great interview with psychologist Nicky Hemmings, reviewing the themes we’ve seen getting attention in 2018.

Before that though, we have the announcement of our new website, some great listener feedback, thoughts on creating a productive 2019 and an update on where to find our show notes.

Lots of links to external resources this episode, so enjoy the reading!

And don’t forget to listen to the very end to learn more about our new Personal Development at Work Meetup.
