The Power of Letting Others Tell their story
The Listen Podcast on Hiatus
The Listen Podcast will be taking a breather while we cook up more episodes! Meanwhile, if you’ve missed a week or two, now is the perfect time to catch up.
S16, E3: Barbara Boyd on being a book coach in Italy
She began as a reader on the bookmobile in her small New Jersey town. Her next chapter was as a writer, but these days she lives on an olive farm in Italy, and she’s back to reading in her role as a coach, guiding authors through the process of writing their own books.
S16, E2: Noah Charney on the life of a writer in Slovenia
As a young man, author Noah Charney dreamed of living in Europe. Anywhere in Europe. In fact, he tried out life in some six different countries before landing in Slovenia, the country that would steal his heart.
S16, E1: Abbie Hibler on founding Little Readers
A mother based in Spain is offered a monthly book subscription from her children’s grandmother in the US. Offput by the shipping charges and red tape, she decides to start a company that offers the same benefits for kids in Europe. Amazingly, she launches the business while on lockdown in the early days of the pandemic.
S15, E3: Kelly Rusch on serving in the Peace Corps in El Salvador
She’s thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail. She’s trekked in Nepal with a 3- and 5-yr-old. She’s taught all over the world. But the groundwork for these adventures was laid when she served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Central America.
S15, E2: Nancy Dimmock on her Peace Corps beginnings in Lesotho
Raised in the Belgian Congo, a young American signs up for the Peace Corps and is assigned to a feedlot project in Lesotho. She plans to employ her animal husbandry skills, but finds she is called by her faith to care for vulnerable children.
Walking the Camino
This is an inspiring conversation. As walking the Camino gives one a sense of adventure, of exploration, so, I remind myself, does living in isolation through these months of the pandemic.
The ties that bind near and far
Love this new podcast! It’s so fascinating hearing what it’s like to start a family across the pond.
Looking forward to more!
