The gift that keeps giving

Apparently my “Modern Love” article and podcast will be featured in a compilation of podcast listeners’ favorite episodes, airing today. I never realized how wide of a reach one essay could have. I am thrilled that my 1,400 words have helped open hearts and minds. Especially in this political/cultural climate, we can use every bit of understanding we can get. What a gift!

I also want to give a shout-out for the compilation show. I loved hearing all the different voices of listeners (voices are so powerful!) and also bits from the producers at the end. The editor, Dan Jones, mentioned how powerful it is to hear actors embodying the words of writers. Yes, that’s a big part of it, but I’ll add that equally important is the work the behind-the-scenes producers do, from the questions, timing, coaching and editing to the music and other sound effects. All these elements coming together to remind us how we’re all part of this human experience together.
