She's a very interesting character. Loved her story about her making a decision to stop doing drugs and have a drive to prove her mum she could do more. Very inspirational. However, as with most of Stevens podcasts, they're unscripted and she tends to waffle on about issues not related to Stevens podcast. A lot of time wasted where I had to fast forward to listen to what was inspirational to me.
