So … I did a thing. A BIG thing. And since it’s my (well, our) podcast, I’m allowed to make Kristen interview me about the big thing I’ve done. 😉
Back in January, when Kristen and I were trying out (and massively resisting) The Artist’s Way, an idea fell nearly fully formed into my lap:
I want to create my own podcast about my ridiculously long, weird, confusing, painstaking journey through singledom. I knew immediately how I wanted it to sound, what stories I wanted to tell, what the art could look like, what the chapters would be called … I just needed to sit down and actually make it.
The idea was so potent that it wouldn’t let me sleep, for nights in a row, until I started writing it all down — it poured out, almost faster than I could keep up with.
I’ve been working on it in fits and bursts ever since, and next Wednesday, August 18 — my birthday, as a matter of fact — I’m dropping the first episode of my new miniseries, Forever Alone: One introverted millennial’s half-agonizing, half-hopeful journey through singledom.
Kristen got to treat me like a “normal person” this month, so listen in as she and I talk about…
- How not getting something you want for years on end can drive you a little crazy, and make you question everything you think you know about yourself and how life works.
- Why this podcast sounds like it’s about dating and relationships, but it’s really about reconciling with BIG things — existential crises, anxiety and depression, belief in something bigger than yourself, what you want out of your career and life, and who you want to be as a human.
- How the creative process unfolded for me, and why it felt critical to tell this story now.
- What I hope you will get out of hearing me work through my fears and feelings.
