I now have new role models

I started listening to this podcast because it came up during my search for an interview with Rachel Wilkerson Miller (I’m a fan of her dot journaling book), and what struck me was that I actually enjoyed listening to the conversation between Kate and Doree at the beginning of the episode more than the interview (which was also great). It reminded me of how my coworkers and I would gather in one of our workspaces in the morning to just talk about what was going on in our lives before we got to work (asking for advice, recommendations, kvetching about something our partner did the evening before, etc.) in the pre-COVID world. We now all work from home and see each other during Zoom meetings or chat via Slack, but I just miss hearing the back-and-forth banter between coworkers, so I now listen to episodes in the background while I work. But I also have to say, I’m becoming more and more impressed by the women they interview. They’re names I’ve never heard before (with the exception of REWM mentioned above) but they are FASCINATING and just generally cool. So I want to thank Kate and Doree for introducing me to the lesser-known talented women of the literary/entertainment/beauty world.

P.S. Doree, if you’re reading this, I was listening to an episode where you mentioned that you went to Brookline High and I mentioned this to my husband who graduated from BHS in ‘01. Turns out, he graduated with your sister Karen! Small world!

Favorite part of the week

I have been a loyal listener for about a year and listening to Kate and Doree is a highlight of my week. They are both compassionate, funny and genuine and I feel like I’m talking to my best friends.
