Honesty About Editing

The Full of Beans Podcast by Hannah Hickinbotham

Episode notes

In this weeks episode, Han is joined by Suzanne Samaka, the founder of the #honestyaboutediting campaign.

Suzanne has witnessed the impact that social media has on children and young people in terms of increasing the prevalence of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and eating disorders. This is the reason she started this campaign.
