I started this podcast when I was 22 years old. Last Monday I turned 28. I've changed in both extreme and subtle ways over the last 6 years and most of that trajectory has been documented in the last 200 podcast episodes I've recorded. I think we change extra quickly in our twenties, at least that's been my experience. At 22 I thought I knew basically everything. At 28 I'm pretty sure I know nothing. Since I began this podcast my body, my relationships, my career, and even my location have all changed drastically many times--the one constant through all of this for me has been this podcast. Recording conversations with people who fascinated me and asking them questions about whatever I was currently wrestling with taught me more than I ever anticipated. When I listen back to the episodes I can always tell what I was grappling with or contemplating based on how I guided the conversation. Over the past five years and 200 plus episodes we've covered topics I've personally been curious about or wrestling with--things like body-image, sex, entrepreneurship, feminism, writing, moving, and creativity. I've learned so much and been so inspired by everything I've learned from hosting this podcast. This week since it's my birthday, I take a break from hosting and my dear friend Sacha Jones takes over and interviews me. This has been an annual tradition on the podcast where each year during the week of my birthday I spend the week as the guest and use the time to catch up with everyone listening. Think of this episode as a "state of the podcast" of sorts where I'll give updates not only on my personal life, but also I reveal the big project I've been working on since January and the future of this podcast including what you can expect in the coming months for Let It Out. Hope you like it!
