The Bottom Up
The Bottom Up asks ordinary people facing extraordinary events how they survived some of the most unimaginable situations, to find their way from The Bottom Up?
In conversation we find out what it really takes when life is turned wrong side up and how everyday people find a way to flip it back again. We share candid conversations that are honest, funny, raw, hopeful, helpful and 100% relatable for anyone that’s ever faced one of life’s big hurdles.
At The Bottom Up we don’t shy away from these topics - instead we walk head first into them, to find out more about being human, what we’re all made of, where resilience comes from and what it really takes to come out on top.
How we got started
The Bottom Up stems from the experience of our podcast co-founder Stephanie Bansemer-Brown, who found herself promoting TV programs and celebrities one day and hoping to survive bowel cancer the next. Her own struggle at 42 - the same age her mum had been when she died of ovarian cancer - left her shocked and searching for answers and more importantly, connection.
This got her thinking, that despite living in the digital era with the world seemingly at our fingertips, we still need people when life happens … and perhaps because of the digital era, we need connection now more than ever.
