Behind the story: This will be forever known as the episode where that nice Jennie Josephson said some truly shocking things into the microphone! But it also marks the episode where I realized that we’re trying to reach a certain ‘story nirvana’. Sure, it’s great to tell stories into a microphone as if you were at your favorite bar with your favorite friends, but I realized, the real goal of this podcast is to tell stories as if there were no microphone. That’s some scary stuff!
Also I was kind of under the weather this week, so the audio podcast thank you’s are coming on the episode that drops next Wednesday. I didn’t want to sully my appreciation of your amazing support with my yucky tired sick voice. : )
