I believe I'm late to the game when it comes to podcasts. I tried a couple of years ago and failed. It felt like one more thing to keep track of and it was something that I felt comfortable letting go...until now.
In response to my blog post about authors, my friend Jennifer Laffin from Sweet Writing Life suggested I listen to a podcast called "Beautiful Writers". I'd heard of it, but I hadn't listened. With the gift of a second snow day, I decided to find the time and settle in to listen to two of my favorite writers, Glennon Doyle Melton and Anne Lamott, have a conversation. It's exactly what I said I wanted, to eavesdrop on them chatting. The podcast was a little over an hour long. I started listening as I was getting dressed, but I quickly realized that this was too important not to give my undivided attention. I grabbed my bag with my notebook and headphones and pens and headed to Wegmans. I found a spot and grabbed a drink, set up my headphones, took out my notebook and pressed play. I'm hooked. This experience was amazing. I took pages and pages and pages of notes. There was so much wisdom in this conversation and it was so relaxed.
Here are some of my notes. They are messy but I kept stopping and replaying parts of the podcast that I wanted to remember. There's so much GOOD stuff here...
Are all podcasts this good? Which are your favorites? I'm in. Now I need to find the time, but I have faith that I will. I feel so inspired and filled up after listening to these women share their thoughts and opinions. What are your go-to podcasts? When do you listen to them? Please leave suggestions in comments!
