This past June, “Merch Gurtch” (a.k.a. Annabelle) toured Europe in a van w/ heavy metal band Dead Poet Society. Her trip got off to a rocky start, however, as soon as she arrived at London’s Heathrow airport and realized…she hadn’t arranged for international phone calls on her cell phone, a detail House found wholly unsurprising. How does a person traveling in 2022 coordinate getting picked up at the airport when she’s (technologically) stuck in the late 80s? And how can this be a victory?
Plus, a listener email is so moving that both Annabelle and Laura are brought to tears.

We only ask that you try to keep messages to under a minute so we’re able to play it on the show.

About the show
Tiny Victories is the 15 minute podcast that pushes back on the notion that you have to “go big” or “go home”. Sometimes just going is the victory. Each week, hosts Annabelle Gurwitch and Laura House invite listeners to adopt a TINY victory frame of mind, and share tales of fleeting joys and minor accomplishments in this majorly messed-up world.
What’s your Tiny Victory? Annabelle and Laura invite audience members to share stories on the Tiny Victories Hotline. To send in your Tiny Victory, call (323) 285-1675 or record a voice memo of your victory and email the file to email@example.com.
