The Made of Human Podcast, also called MohPod, is about connection. I sit down with a lovely person and we talk about life. I want to find out how to cope with being an adult person. I want to find out how to deal with all of the confusing bits of life. All of the hurtful bits of life. I want to sit, for just an hour, with a great person and learn from them. And - if they have no idea how to 'adult', then that will be absolutely okay - at least we will have an hour of feeling like we're not the only ones in the world.

Sofie talks to New York-based standup comedian and Vice reporter Michelle De Swarte about pyjama modelling, moving to LA and becoming a Buddhist, growing up in a women's refuge, swallowing emotions and learning to be upset, constant reinvention, making yourself a martyr, trying not to weird out your therapist, emotional alleyways, school troubles, dysfunctional relationships, physical appearance, social media, a 1am timeslot at the Edinburgh Fringe, why the Spice Girls lied to us and doing a bit of chanting.
