About Francesca Specter
I'm the host and creator of the Alonement podcast, the hit show that inspired my debut non-fiction book, Alonement: How To Be Alone & Absolutely Own It.
Having worked for over a decade in journalism (British Vogue, Metro, Daily Express, Healthy), I launched my podcast, Alonement, in 2019. Through hosting the show, I attracted the attention of an editor at Quercus – and, after negotiating a publishing deal, I left my full-time role as deputy editor of Yahoo Lifestyle in order to run my platform.
Two years later, I'm committed to helping like-minded journalists, writers & creatives establish their individual niches through podcasting. I'm a firm believer in this medium to establish your voice, and create a wider network and community around your platform – all while evolving your thinking and keeping your process fresh.
