    MINIPOD: A Magical Teacher (Thanks That Got Away)

    MINIPOD: A Magical Teacher (Thanks That Got Away)

    A listener thanks their former teacher who inspired her life choices more than they will ever know...and Angela’s got some teacher memories too!
    Thanks A Million listeners share their “Thanks That Got Away”! The people you never got a chance to say 'thank you' to. The people who changed your whole life or outlook and you didn’t get the opportunity to tell them. Now is your chance! 
     
    To get your story featured just email no more than 600 words to:
    thanks@thanksamillionpodcast.com 
     
    Perhaps it was a stranger on the bus who picked you up when you were down? The holiday romance that taught you what true love could be? Or the ex who taught you what it definitely wasn’t? Maybe it’s the sibling you never appreciated until it was too late. The nurse who cared for you in your darkest hour or the friend who opened your eyes to the beauty of the world...
     
    Over the years I’ve learnt just how wonderful it feels to say those two simple words ‘thank you’, and how a simple act of gratitude can have truly transformative effects far beyond anything you can imagine. So write to me – tell me your stories of the thanks that got away so it might inspire us all to take a moment and reflect on those who deserve some gratitude. 
     
    You can be kept anonymous if you prefer, but it’s finally a chance to let it out, hold back no more and share that thank you which you never got to give!

Justinekirwan ,

Thanks a million

Loved the chats between you and Imelda 💜💜

mega254 ,

The only podcast in my library that I actually listen to each episode…

This podcast is a refreshing take on gratitude - interviews with people and the different points in their life they were/are thankful for someone or something. This sort of topic isn’t what I’d usually listen too, but Angela Scanlon is cheeky and refreshing, stopping it from being too saccharine, yet gives guests the space they need to tell their stories. Many of the guests I don’t recognize (I’m in the US and Scanlon is Irish and based out of London) but I always feel better for being introduced to them through the show (a huge array - actors, writers, health gurus). There’s never been an episode where I didn’t take something away with me - whether it was funny or poignant. During 2020 the podcast was the perfect companion on a morning walk, when I struggled to get my a** out of the house and get my head ready for the day.

AMAZING

Honestly this podcast is amazing.
It’s kickstarted my 2021 of on a huge positive note. It’s witty, hilarious and down right heart warming and just what we need right now!
Thanks a million Angela, you’re delicious xo
