Tiny Victories is the 15 minute podcast that pushes back on the notion that you have to "go big" or "go home". Sometimes just going is the victory. Each week, hosts Annabelle Gurwitch and Laura House invite listeners to adopt a TINY victory frame of mind, and share tales of fleeting joys and minor accomplishments in this majorly messed-up world.
I Love You! Let’s Not Do Lunch
Before you listen to this episode, think of your friends. More specifically, think of those friends you genuinely like, but typically only cross paths with every so often. Can you picture some of those friends? Great! Now go ahead and listen to the show as Annabelle shares a tiny victory related to this type of friend group.
Old Love vs. Young Love
Why do we affix so much importance to young love? “Ooh, they’re high school sweethearts!” This week Laura House interrogates our fascination with young love, and makes a compelling case that we should also celebrate old love.
Plus, we get an email from a listener whose tiny victory is something she did that no one else will likely see, but gave her tremendous satisfaction.
Earth Activists Anger Art World (and surprise Annabelle)
Two of the activists who glued themselves to the painting Girl with a Pearl Earring at the Mauritshuis museum in the Hague have been sentenced to prison for their protest. Annabelle is surprised at her own reaction to the soup throwers who target high-profile paintings.
How to Make Someone's Day
This week, House shares the secret on how to make someone’s day. No one told it to her, but she experienced it. And YOU can learn it too...by listening to this episode.
THE Reason the Internet Exists
In this week’s episode, Annabelle has figured out THE reason the Internet exists. Unsurprisingly, she stumbled across Internet’s raison d'être on Goodreads. Plus, Kelly from Maine calls in with TWO wonderful victories.
Victories at THE THEATAH
House had a cluster of victories after her friend Chris invited her to attend a production of The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe starring Cecily Strong in the one-woman show that won Lily Tomlin a Tony in 1986. Turns out Annabelle (of course!) saw the original production. This week, the duo celebrate the profound experience of live theater.
I’ve been listening to this show since it began and it never fails to touch up on something that has come up in my life. Annabelle and both Lauras have their fingers on the pulse of our collective wrangling for sanity and peace and suggest we achieve it through the simplest of ways—finding tiny victories. I’m hooked. (And maybe a little bit addicted.)
