The Good Bits

Welcome to The Good Bits – my version of the best things I’ve come across on the internet, all collated into a little collection for your consumption. There are articles, videos and podcasts that moved me, inspired me, made me pee a bit with laughter or all three and more. I’ve inhaled each and every one countless times and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. This collection is also constantly growing and I’m always on the lookout for more things to soak up, so if you have any recommendations please let me know!
