Amy Purdy

This week on Magic Lessons, Elizabeth Gilbert advises Penelope, a dance teacher in New Jersey, who wants to create a dance performance to mark her 60th birthday. Even though she’s been dancing her whole life, she’s having trouble finding the courage to pull this off. For expert guidance, Liz calls up one of the most courageous dancers she knows: Amy Purdy — a Paralympian snowboarder and semifinalist on Dancing With the Stars.

Special Guest: Amy Purdy is a snowboarder, Paralympian, dancer, model, actor, and speaker. Her memoir On My Own Two Feet: From Losing My Legs To Learning The Dance Of Life is published by HarperCollins. You can find out more about her at amypurdy.com

This week's sponsors: Casper, The Great Courses Plus, and Stamps.com

Discussion of the the funniest non-comedy podcasts (led by Podthoughts author Colin Marshall);


Lively ongoing exchange about the show Community; and


Folks are still sharing their favorite moments from the recent JJGo! episode "Cool Papa Bell with Rob Huebel". Including lots of great suggestions for the official MaxFun hand signal.
