Description: This week’s episode was inspired by Katie Heaney’s article in The Cut about Shakira’s newfound love of skateboarding in her forties. The Colombian singer & songwriter has stunned fans with how quickly she mastered the sport, as evidenced in the music video for Girl Like Me.
Laura and Annabelle celebrate Shakira’s latest hobby, but wonder if the world would be a better place if the media called attention to more mundane activities, such as, “Shakira Ate a Carb”. And Annabelle reveals the second act she envisioned for herself that didn’t happen. Well, it happened for House, just not Annabelle.

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.

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.
