It’s not often Annabelle discovers a word she’s not familiar with, but she was taken in by an article in The Atlantic by the Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Ed Yong. Yong delved into the theory of umwelt, which is the world experienced by a particular organism. Annabelle’s umwelt shifted after reading his article, and she came away with a better appreciation for the yearnings of ticks, as well as other creatures.
Plus, we’ve got a hotline caller who struggles to tell us about her pup’s “half bark”.

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 email@example.com.
