Host Amelia Phillips goes behind the scenes, giving an insight into each episode, what went well, what didn't and helps us get to know the guests a little better. This ep goes behind Wendy MacCarthy who was instrumental in decriminalising abortion, and Alisa Latto, who grew an empire from the desire to raise healthy kids in a healthy home. 

About the guests:

Wendy McCarthy is nothing short of a powerhouse force for change. Now in her 80s, Wendy remains Deputy-Chair of Goodstart Early Learning, a Non-executive Director of IMF Bentham, a Patron of the Sydney Women’s Fund, Ambassador for 1 Million Women, and Advisor to Grace Papers. Wendy boasts one of the most impressive resumes of her time having affected positive change for Australian women all throughout her career. 
Her latest memoir Don't Be Too Polite Girls is full of brilliant storytelling and wise words for ambitious women. 

Alisa Latto (and her business partner Dani Crews) are both Mums and the founders of 123 Nourish Me, an education hub, vibrant community and marketplace for organic, clean products for the family and home. From sunscreens to organic, nutrient rich foods and beverages, essential oils and household products, 123 Nourish Me is a great community for parents trying to raise healthy happy kids.
