Hozier makes you think. It's in his lyrics, in his music... even his music videos. So it's no surprise to find out that he spends a long time thinking about how he writes and performs his chart-busting songs. In this chat with Fearne, Hozier describes his approach to songwriting, how indecision can sometimes be his downfall, and why performing doesn't come naturally to him.

Up until the age of 28, Juno was known to most as the best-selling author of young adult fiction - James Dawson. But in that year, she entered the process of physically becoming the person she always felt she was and adopted the female pronoun. Now Juno talks to Fearne about the transition she's made, how she celebrates her femininity, some questionable fashion statements, and what we can all learn about her journey. Triggers: suicide, mental health, #metoo. This episode also contains a transphobic word that some will find offensive (in order to discuss its offensiveness).

That was incredible, I started crying when she was talking about how love spoke to her, then stopped myself in case the neighbours heard. Then she started talking about letting it out! That was amazing

Really enjoyed listening to Kirsty Youngs podcast she just seemed to be completely & naturally positive about her view point on life. Listening to the way she draws out a conversation from her interviewees & then her take on it! Happy to listen to similar people🤔😊

Fearne thank you thank you thank you. i was introfuced to your podcast by my lovely friend Kay whilst going through a really tough time. My parents are suffering from alzheimer's and vascular dementia, i have been massively struggling with this and also menopause, 2 jobs, a husband and 4 kids. listening to your podcasts has been an amazing help in my journey of self preservation. some of my absomute faves have been gary barlow dawn french davina McCall bryony gordon and omg how amazing is Russel Brand. i have learnt so much from you and from them. i only started listening a couple of months ago and have basically been binge listening and im up to he end of series 2. im afraid of catchi g up completely as then I'll only ne abke to listen to one a week which is a very sad prospect indeed. however...as i continue to self heal, i may be able to cope with just a weekly dose. long may they continue. thanks and god bless you always. tina. cardiff. xxx
