I never planned to do a podcast. As most things happen for me, it was kind of by accident! People were very interested in hearing about more than food. They wanted to hear about lifestyle topics and I wanted to have a personal conversation with my daughter in a place that we could share and be uninterrupted. That conversation was about her journey as a queer person and things just took off from there!
So these conversations are about the kinds of topics that interest all of us: mothering, life, birth, death, divorce and truly about how to live. I share my own daily quest and journey of figuring out how to live my own best life and all of the pitfalls along the way.
I have been so pleased and delighted with all of the fabulous feedback and it has been such a wonderful surprise! I just couldn’t be more thrilled that you guys are liking it so much!
