Jan 30, 2017

Today’s guests are Marie Fitzpatrick and Nic Murray from Good Bitches Baking. About two years ago they decide to try and make the world a little less shitty by baking treats for people having a tough time, and Good Bitches Baking was born, they’ve grown from what they initially envisioned as a couple of people in Wellington helping out to having over 1000 volunteers across many parts of New Zealand and it really has been the case of having the tiger by the tail for most of the time.

If you hadn’t realised from the charity name Nic and Marie are pretty hard case so there is a bit of hilarity in the episode. If you also hadn’t realised by the name, Nic and Marie are also a bit sweary, they describe themselves as the sweariest people they know, so just bear that in mind while you’re listening to the episode. They’re also occasionally awesome.

Today in our chat you’ll hear about; the desire to not feel helpless and what to do about it, how little moments of kindness can have massive influences, realising that you’re onto something so much bigger than you anticipated, conscious decisions to become overwhelmed, and almost in contrast giving yourself permission to not do it all.

This is part of the story of the journey of Good Bitches Baking, some of the challenges, some of the “Oh shit” moments, some of the fun times, and taking back the power of the word.

Thanks for taking the time to get uncomfortable with us today. If you like what you hear make sure to share it out so you too can help make the world a more delicious and less shitty place.
