Amazing!

This is the most beautiful story I have ever heard. It was honest and vulnerable. Highly recommended!

What a compelling and moving story. I listen to too many podcasts daily and this deeply moved me. The study is about a father-daughter story, really a daughter-father story, really a story of a human with a big heart and a deep curiosity. The writing and voice is vulnerable. The sound presentation is so professional and well edited. I think a lot about the emotional language of editing, and this podcast is a perfect example of modulating emotional energies and giving multiple entry points on many registers in every episode. Also for any of us who are artists and writers, this podcast is a perfect mix of a storytelling podcast with a series of craft talks on story telling. It’s impossible to listen to this and not think about your own life, and also your own creative process. And actually life, living, is a creative process. Like you would curl up with a book, take some time and dig into this. It’s so worth it.

Grieving

Janielle, thank you for putting this together. I had an explosive death of a family member eighteen months ago. I felt that I have not really grieved the way most people would expect me to grieve. You are teaching me that grieving is important and a unique experience. I am learning how to break down what had happen into smaller piece.
