Reading is an empathy factory. When I read Australian singer-songwriter Clare Bowditch’s memoir, “Your Own Kind of Girl”, I related deeply to her struggles with insecurity, self-worth and sanity. We had so much in common it was uncanny, like finding an accidental lost twin sibling through a bookshop. Join us as we talk (and laugh, and cry) about owning your own self-doubt and self-hatred, how books can actually change your life, the emotional cost of telling your own true story….and more.

Amanda Palmer presents an intimate conversation with Clare Bowditch, recorded March 6, 2020, at Sing Sing Studios, Melbourne, Australia.
Clare Bowditch is an Australian actor, radio presenter, and entrepreneur.
She started performing in the Melbourne pub circuit at seventeen years old.
In 1998, she formed the band Red Raku and recorded two albums along with producer and drummer Marty Brown—who is now her husband, producer and music manager.
In 2010, Clare was awarded Rolling Stone’s Woman of the Year.
In 2006 she won the ARIA Award for Best Female Artist and in 2012 was nominated for a Logie Award for her work on the TV series Offspring.
She has since founded Big Hearted Business, a training ground and classroom for other female entrepreneurs.
Her memoir, Your Own Kind of Girl, is an exploration into her own inner critic that pulls no punches. If you’re an artist, you’re going to want to read this book.
She also hosts Tame Your Inner Critic – an Audible Original that’s a playful take on self-development.
