In May 2016, my best friend Sally and I co-created and launched a podcast. It was my idea--I was coming up on the one-year anniversary of finding out I was losing my job as personal assistant to my idol, and I wanted to commemorate the occasion somehow. As I folded laundry while binging podcasts one afternoon, the inspiration arrived: A YEAR AGO TODAY. A PODCAST.

It was gold.

I told Sally immediately, and like any best friend does, she said, "That's a great idea! I'll help you! We'll do it together!"

It's because of her that this podcast got made, yo.

ANYWAY. It was great. We launched a beautiful show. We did the dance of learning how to co-host. We did a lot of troubleshooting. We were in our glory. We made the thing. Consistently. For over a year!

Then, in June 2017, we went on a little break. We felt there was a big up-level coming, and the guidance we were receiving was "allow space." So we did. Before you know it, our planned three-month break had stretched out into 2018, and I'd begun to doubt if we were ever coming back.

In mid-march however, everything changed. (You can hear more about that on "Season 2 - A Prelude" in the podcast feed.) Now, we're back and better than ever with Sally producing while I take up the mantle as a solo host!

At least, I think you can find it anywhere. If you can't find it where you look, email ayearagopodcast@gmail.com to let me know, and I'll get on it.

If you've got an anniversary coming up that you'd like to share, email ayearagopodcast@gmail.com and let me know if you'd be willing to talk about it on the show! It would be a pleasure to host you, dear one.
