    Last year when she had fewer babies, Tori and I sat in the bunkie of a cottage at our annual Lady Camp trip and talked about how living abroad as the 'trailing spouse' means she constantly reinvents herself for work, something she realizes she has always done.

    Michelle Parise just barfs her heart out

    My longtime work friend Michelle Parise, senior producer at CBC, had a successful first season of her podcast Alone: A Love Story in which she spills her guts about what happened after her husband cheated and her life exploded.

    It's not all sad.

    Michelle talks about why she made the podcast, her ex-husband's reaction, and the resurgence of artistic expression in her life.

The world needs #mediagirlfriends!

The world needs #mediagirlfriends! The podcast’s message of “by lifting her up I am lifted up too, as are we all” is a balm in this era of scarcity thinking that there isn’t enough success to go around. And the platform for many different perspectives and experiences ... it’s everything! I’m so glad and grateful Nana aba created it.
