Untangled

By Alana Helbig

Have you ever asked: “Is this all there is to life?” Untangled explores the lives of people who have questioned our social systems, constructs and norms and chosen to live life in a different, often unconventional way. Through honest storytelling, Untangled explores one focal question: what does it really take to untangle from society’s giant rule book, move away from the mundane and embark on a search for something more? Join host Alana Helbig as she interviews ordinary people about their choice to live not-so-ordinary lives, touching on topics such as slow and simple living, alternatives to the 9-5, sustainability, solo travel, activism, lesbianism, feminism and patriarchy, indigenous cultures, spirituality, financial security and more. These are captivating stories where we ask intimate questions about people's lives before, during and after their untangling. We look at the how, the why and the internal and external shifts required to live an untangled life.
