Will Write for Wine—she and author C.J. Barry delighted me with their irreverent humor as they talked about writing. Then I got hooked on Popcorn Dialogues—again Lani Diane Rich (as Lucy March), podcasting with author Jennifer Crusie and talking story in films—also delightful.
Today, I’m sending you somewhere else, though—not being lazy, honest, but last night I listened to the first episode of Chipperish Media’s Big Strong Yes podcast and you so want to hear this. Author, podcaster, and story expert Lani Diane Rich and researcher Dr. Kelly Jones talk about “what it means to engage in badassery,” as they explore three books, Brené Brown’s Rising Strong and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear and Shonda Rimes’s Year of Yes. Lani and Dr. Jones are real and vulnerable and brilliant and amazing—you’ll be all in from the first moment. I’ve bought the first book (Brown's) and I’m planning on following along each week.The chemistry between these two women is fun and they really explore writing and themselves.
Chipperish also has several other fabulous podcasts, including How Story Works--all about story and storytelling; Jed Barlett Is My President--a look at The West Wing, one of my favorite TV shows, and Still Pretty, in which Lani discusses Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
If you've never listened to a podcast before, any of Lani's are a great place to start. Use the links. Go listen. I promise, you'll have a great time! Enjoy!
