Episode notes

For anyone who, like Laura House, HATED exercise, this is the episode for you! For her entire life, no-longer-spring-chicken Laura House has approached exercise as some approach dental care: It sucks, but it’s one of those things you just gotta do. Cut to present day, and Laura “Hoops” House, not only exercises regularly, but looks forward to it! And all it took was a basketball, and a modest goal. Plus, Annabelle tells us about her short-lived dreams of joining the WNBA.

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.
