Episode 64: Trying Easier

trying easier

To everything there is a season.

So simple, so true, and finally our podcast is also broken up into seasons too. When we looked back at the episodes we have done, springtime has naturally marked the end of our first 3 seasons.

I’m so lucky to have a creative partner who I can speak openly to about wanting to take a break — and even luckier that she felt the same way.

It’s easy to put a lot of pressure on our creativity, but we have both felt what it’s like to be on our game, and lately (with both of us moving and dealing with difficult things), it’s been hard.

Taking a break now, and busting into Season 4 later this summer is better for all of us, and we’re so excited to reunite, get inspired, and get brainstorming.

You can listen to our episode here or in the player below (Feeling it? You can also subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, and leave us a rating and a comment — it’s the easiest way to help our little show grow)


So long, Season 3, it’s been a slice.

I have some good news for those of you who have requested we do an episode on our favourite podcasts: We did it! Because we love you too.

Ask and you shall receive;

Especially if you’re asking for podcast recommendations because both Steph and I cannot stop talking about our faves, often unsolicited.

So which podcasts made the cut? We highly recommend you give the following list a listen. You can listen to the episode by clicking play below, or subscribe to us on iTunes, to find out more about why we love these shows.

  • This American Life (You can listen to their latest episode on their website)
  • Invisibilia (We recommend the episode on human echolocation)
  • Serial (Start from the beginning and try not to binge!)
  • The Joy the Baker Podcast (If you like Steph, you’ll like Joy. They’re practically the same person)
  • Dear Sugar Radio (Because we will never stop loving Cheryl Strayed)
  • Death Sex and Money (We recommend this episode on cheating – and I also loved this episode with Ken Jeong because Community is one of my favourite TV Shows)
  • TED Radio Hour (Think: TED Talks collected into themes, with interviews of the speakers)
  • Radio Lab (The crazy caterpillar / black box episode can be found here)
  • Story Corps (Listen if you are due for a good cry. These are every day people preserving their own stories)
  • The Savage Lovecast (Dan Savage is the sanest relationship/sexuality advice giver I’ve heard. Steph and I have taken turns binging on his show)
