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.
Marie KonDON'T Worry About Landfills!
This week our tiny victories come from the Tiny Victory Hotline. Listener Bonnie tells us how she’s taken advantage of the extra time she has in the age of COVID, and Annabelle’s response traumatizes Laura. Plus, two very different tattoo-related victories from Theo and Nate.
Laura House: Dragon Slayer
This week’s tale is less of a tiny victory than it is an epic poem. It’s the story of how Laura House had to overcome her fears so she could slay the dragon that threatened–in a tiny way–her, and everyone she worked with. Annabelle finds a way to make House’s triumph seem even grander. Plus, an Australian listener calls into the show to explain why her 2021 calendar is her favorite thing that Laura predicted unintentionally.
The Worst Year Ever
IS 2020 the worst year ever? Can such an assertion even be proven? Whether or not such a thing can be proven, there is a definite consensus among historians about what year is, by far, “the worst”. Plus, self-described “non-joiner” Annabelle jumps on a bandwagon so she can be in the same company as a certain Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. (Spoiler Alert: It’s not John Bolton). And House receives a very special message on the Tiny Victory Hotline that's legit touching.
Psst! Gossip Is Good Now
This week we hear from Maggie Rowe, a listener who called the Tiny Victory Hotline with a story about an old word that gave her a new perspective on a much-maligned habit. Also, there’s some hot goss on what makes Annabelle drop her pants, and House accidentally sides with The Pope.
**Content Warning: If you are sensitive to bragging and/or indifference to The Lord of The Rings movies, listen with caution.**
In this week’s episode, Laura House brings us a tiny victory demonstrating the wisdom of “less is more” in one’s online dating profile. The decision to not share a seemingly irrelevant truth about herself turned out to be one of the most consequential decisions of House’s life. But this episode isn’t about that huge decision. It’s about something tiny that happened as a result of that monumental decision House made, and it has to do with being open to new experiences, liminal space, and the exquisite power of René Marie.

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.

This is one of my daily “listen to” routines. Short insightful, funny and refreshing! Thanks ladies! You are just wonderful!
David Feldman has a weird dent in his forehead and Robin Williams should never get a negative review of a St. Jude’s YouTube video. One star for 2020. No pizza for breakfast is a victory. Inconsequential to the workings of the world, but the happy place can be a 6-way or another empathy generator. No tiny Toobin victories. Happy cats don’t watch CATS, unless they’re stoned. Don’t read the chat room. Interspecial animal pairs like Ivanka and Jared should stay in their pods. This segment is brought to you by Feldo’s - “Guaranteed to make your heart race”
This is what the world needs right now
Thank you!! I’d resorted to listening to pre-covid podcasts to feel better about the world
