I adored reading And Now for the Good News - truly there is hope * Emma Freud * I adored interviewing Ruby: she has such a fizzing, uniquely vibrant and clever way of thinking about things. And I've wanted her on the podcast for ages because she does such important work * Elizabeth Day * Easy-to-read and interesting take on (...) what's good in the world * People Magazine * In her imitable style, Ruby describes her global journey to hunt out people inventing a better world (...) self-compassion is at the heart of Ruby's philosophy * Waitrose Magazine * It's the antidote to all Covid angst life anxieties & proves that optimism is not an eye disease * Kathy Lette * I am reading and finding on every page a delicious morsel * Celia Imrie on Twitter * It is nice even to think about Good News.
