The biggest takeaway from my most recent corporate workshop? Just the simple act of standing in a room and physically being together was a huge benefit to the team.
I feel lost. We all feel lost, right? Our country is going down in flames. The news of the Orlando Massacre hit me with a slow burn... but over the past 2 days, I just can't get it together to stop feeling devastated and hopeless about the state of our country. Sadness is a familiar feeling. Hopeless is a new one.
I have a folder on my computer called “TAL Pitches” where, since 2007 when I started listening to my now favorite podcast, I would sketch out different ways to get my "sociopath boyfriend story" recognized by a show as popular as This American Life (TAL.) I never submitted any of them.
And then, last year, the show contacted me.
