Since 2011, the Freelance Jungle has been meeting the gaps within and the people within the Australian freelance scene. Part social club, part online forum and all heart, it’s on a mission to end the isolation, raise the knowledge bar and remind freelancers everywhere stress has a productivity cost. This is that mission in podcast form. Hosted by Nicole Leedham and Freelance Jungle founder, Rebekah Lambert, the sounds of the freelance jungle can be heard as they explore issues, ideas and what it means to be self-employed in Australia.
One morning in July 2016, writer, mother and author Emma Grey awoke to unbelievable heartbreak. The event has lead Emma to advocate for better death literacy and for people to take heart health seriously. Emma joins the Sounds of the Freelance Jungle to explain why every freelancer should pay greater attention to their health and end of life plans.
