This week we hear victories about friendship and community from callers Sarah and Wendy. In our first call, Sarah tells us about how worried she was to move to the town of Idyllwild, CA in the during a pandemic. She reached out to her new community on Facebook, and found the resources she needed to fulfill a lifelong dream.
We owe our second call to one of Wendy’s amazing friends. In episode 18, Annabelle professed her love of color, and why she got so excited when she recognized that a certain coat happened to be the same shade of yellow as one of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2021. She asked listeners to share their own yellow victories with us, and one of those listeners texted Wendy and told her to listen to the episode. Short story long, Wendy called in with a victory as beautiful and uplifting as it was heartbreaking and sad.
Things You Should Stop Worrying About This Week

In one chapter of the book, Annabelle writes about her experience with the Host Home Program, which is dedicated to finding creative solutions for homelessness.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
