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!

Tune In:

  • Thursdays for A Year Ago Today interviews, pre-recorded conversations wherein I talk with people about what was going on in their lives a year (or three or five years, or whatever) ago today,

  • Monday nights/Tuesday mornings (depends on how easy it is to get it up!) for what I'm currently calling Monday Night Raw, a segment during which I share my own current experiences around the creative process that is my emotional life

  • Friday mornings for AYATAF, post-episode discussions with my friend and sound editor, Alex Francis, who brings a male perspective to the show that I just adore.

All this content is currently offered freely, as my gift to you, and you can access it by searching "A Year Ago Today" anywhere podcasts are found.

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

You can also follow @AYearAgoPodcast on Facebook or Instagram for more in-depth engagement with what's being created OR visit our (currently out-of-date) website www.ayearagopodcast.com for everything you need from Season One. There's a lot of good stuff there including a great list on the homepage that allows you to easily find episodes by topic.

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.
