Three weeks before Elizabeth Day’s 39th birthday, she had a bad romantic break-up. It had been her first long-term relationship after her divorce and she felt like a total failure when it ended.

She was looking down the barrel of turning 40 as a single woman without the children she so desperately wanted.

Fast forward to today and Elizabeth is one of the most successful podcasters in the world, and she’s also a friendship addict.

On this episode of No Filter Elizabeth talks to Mia about friendship, failure and everything in between. 


Elizabeth's new book Friendaholics is available here.
