It was not on the agenda at her career guidance meetings at school, but somehow in Lockdown 17-year-old schoolgirl Hannah McSorley has ended up as a "Tik Tok Tadpole Influencer". The tens of thousands of tadpoles in her garden have earned more than half a million followers on the platform and a US Influencer agent has come calling, so it looks like tadpoles are going to be this teenager's lucrative new career. You can see why we needed to get her on the podcast. We also had to talk about women's mental health in this episode, because we know that women are disproportionately affected in terms of depression, anxiety and sleeplessness. We spoke to two women, Louise O'Leary and Dr Cliona Loughnane, working in this field about the mental health Webinar they are running on Friday June 12th.
