I bookmark podcasts to save for these times when I'm in the kitchen for hours at a time. I am aware that multi-tasking is no longer considered a thing, but listening to someone talk while I'm browning chicken or shaping cookies is close.
Of course, I have notes floating around my kitchen that I took maybe a couple months ago while bopping between listening to a podcast and cooking something. Sad to say, I didn't jot down what podcast I was listening to, so I can't share. A few insights stuck with me.
Today, though, I can actually provide my playlist.
- How to Write a Story with John Dufresne. Kind of a downer at first. No happy ending! Everybody dies! Made up for it at the end, though. The muse doesn't go to football games and parties.
- Chimamanda Adiche: What Are The Dangers Of A Single Story? I'm into story as a sort of mystical thing, and I thought this was excellent.
- Write The Book Interview with Laurie Calkhoven. I've listened to podcasts of Write The Book interviews before. It's a very nice radio show out of Burlington, Vermont. I chose the Laurie Calkhoven interview because we're Facebook friends. We sort of met in the hall at a NESCBWI Conference (maybe the one the interviewer mentions at the end of the program). We both ran workshops in the same room. Hers was just before mine.
