Relatable, fun and informative

Always enjoy these interesting conversations, which are filled with big idea questions as well as relatable stories. The guest list is diverse, and I particularly like hearing authors I know and love.

Kelly makes everything relatable!

I love all of Kelly Corrigan books, and I love to listen to her podcast. She brings humor and insight to all her conversations. I always learn something new from all of the podcast.

Good to have you in my ear, Kelly

Kelly, I am a big fan of your writing, and was so excited to learn of your podcast. I've now listened to all episodes posted, and hope you are making more. Atwood, Lamott and Christoff were my favorites. Two suggestions: (1) Be a better listener. You are so funny and clever, and it's a joy to hear you. But as the host, please ask your questions and then LISTEN and let your guests talk. You sometimes TALK OVER your guests, and even dissolve into riffs that may be amusing and impressive to you both, but can detract from the very reason you probably invited them onto your show (Nathanson, for example). (2) The opening (multiple voices chiming "EXACTLY!" and the game-show music) is corny and sounds like a 1970s TV Talk Show, or a junior high school project. It doesn't match the quality and class of your interviews. Please consider something more elegant.

I look forward to new interviews and have highly recommended your podcast to many. Thank you for making this podcast!
