We all have moments in our career when things don’t go exactly as planned.

They could be cause of huge embarrassment or a feeling of deep failure.

Listening to successful people having undergone a similar situation and overcome it might act as good motivation in such cases.

Writer Giles Paley-Phillips and comedian Jim Daly host insightful interview podcasts that delve into moments when people go “blank”- from forgetting lines to not being in form to having writer’s block.

They interview renowned people of varying professions like comedy, acting, broadcasting, politics, writing and sports about how they handled things when they didn’t go according to plan.

We highly recommend their podcasts for when you’re feeling low about your professional life.
