I’m grateful for my podcast for many reasons. At top one on that list is the fact that it allows me to have long deep conversations with people I admire and ask them whatever I’m curious about the very first time we meet. Plus we get to have that conversation recorded forever like a time capsule of our first friend date. I met today’s guest Deenie on the internet this summer and this fall we recording at my apartment in New York City. We had a cozy Saturday afternoon where we drank kombucha and chatted nonstop for hours only breaking to pee. When you eavesdrop on that conversation today you’ll hear us discuss everything from how she moved to New York from the south to be a dancer and ended up with a career as a copy director and essayist. She’s worked for Vogue, written for Refinery 29, and been featured in the acclaimed New York Time’s Modern Love column. Our conversation covers much more than merely her career path to becoming a successful writer– on the we talk about the uncertainty that come with freelancing and traveling and how she handles lacking routine and self care, and my favorite part of the conversation which was where we talked about relationships, marriage, and how she knew her husband was the one. We of course chatted about body image, her relationship to social media and technology, and spirituality and what she thinks happens when we die. I loved this conversation and most of all meeting Deenie, she’s such a great guest to end the season on. Be sure you’re subscribed on iTunes and on my email list so you know when we’re back with a new season of Let It Out until then enjoy this long meandering episode.
