Episode notes

It will surprise no one to learn that Annabelle was a bookish kid–a bookish kid who wrote lots of bad poetry that was published in [lit magazine]. Annabelle was so scarred by her poetry, that she avoided it entirely. And then she attended a meditation class online lead by Rich Panico. Rich did something that brought Annabelle back to poetry, and she reveals what that is. Plus, a hotline call from a younger listener takes Laura and Annabelle back to high school.

Do YOU have a tiny victory to share? 

 

Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675

We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters. Prove us wrong. Did you finally do that thing you were putting off? Tiny victory! Reconnect with someone you haven’t been in touch with for ages? Victory! We only ask that you try to keep messages to under a minute so we’re able to play it on the show.

If you prefer, you can record a tiny victory on your phone and then email us the audio.

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 tinyvictories@maximumfun.org.

Follow Tiny Victories at @GetTinyPod on Twitter and Instagram.
