“I mean….”

All the use of fillers like “I mean” and “like” are so annoying at take away credibility. You sound like a child.

Heart Squeeze

I remember watching an episode of Oprah many years ago, where she threw a dart at an audience seating chart and then interviewed the person in that chair. That person’s life was absolutely was fascinating! The point was that everybody has a story. Everybody. Has. A. Story. This was Sue’s story and I found it beautiful and heartbreaking and mysterious and intriguing and lovely. Her story has a new chapter and It feels like a happy ending. Life is all about the heart connections we make. Just beautiful!

Falls Flat in the middle of the season

Just a bunch of misremembering with zero payoff. Only people with whom I imagine to enjoy this podcast were the folks involved in the story and interviewed and their friends and family. Waste of my time. I also find it incredibly difficult to listen to these people speculating on this woman’s life. Cringe.
