Who doesn’t love a good podcast in the morning? Maybe you’re munching Cheerios. Maybe you’re on your way to work. Maybe you’re chugging coffee. Whatever you’re doing, might it not be improved by listening to a short, delightful podcast? We keep these episodes to around 10 minutes specifically so there is NO EXCUSE not to listen. Also, it’s very on-…
 
We don’t normally have themes for these episodes, but I think the theme for this one is “retreat.” Not surrendering or giving up, just… going on vacation. Pam gets herself into quite a pickle at a trip to a monastery. Lee tells us about her time with friends in a cozy cabin. Snuggle up by the fire. Get away from the daily grind. Unwind with us.…

The moon brings out the best in us, and the worst. Branches reach up to the sky, warning us of what is to come. A list of things to do before you die seems contrived. The only real joy comes from observing the everyday phenomena alive within all of us. Stopping to smell the roses. Shouldn't we already be doing that? Come slow dance with us. Howl at…

You’d think they’d be pretty similar, right? You’d think they’d be pals, right? Wrong! These two fine books are in fact very different, and th…
