    Ep. 306 Rough Magic Author Lara Prior Palmer on Horse Racing in Mongolia, Writing a Memoir and Being Brave

    Ep. 306 Rough Magic Author Lara Prior Palmer on Horse Racing in Mongolia, Writing a Memoir and Being Brave

    Today we welcome bestselling author Lara Prior Palmer to talk about the gap year that inspired her book, Rough Magic. At the age of nineteen, Lara Prior-Palmer discovered a website devoted to “the world’s longest, toughest horse race”―an annual competition of endurance and skill that involves dozens of riders racing a series of twenty-five wild ponies across 1,000 kilometers of Mongolian grassland. Lara ultimately became the youngest and first-ever woman to win the race. Margo, Julia and Lara discuss the entirety of Lara's gap year, what it was like competing as a woman and why she thinks all young people should consider the magical uncertainty of gap time.

    ***CONTEST ALERT***

    We are running an Instagram contest to give away a copy of Lara's book! The contest runs through Monday, December 16th 2019 so the winner will get their copy just in time for the holidays.
