Walking to and from work each day can get pretty boring. In order to occupy myself on my walk, most mornings, I talk on the phone with my Aunt, Mom, sister or boyfriend. More often than not, I am listening to music but that gets really boring too. My playlists stay the same, Spotify isn’t working with my mood or something in between. Lately, I’ve been getting back into podcasts. For me, it’s hard to listen to podcasts at work because I get so into them. Instead of working, I find myself listening intently.
This morning on my way to work, I geared up The Moth Podcast and was on my merry way. Today the episode was an interesting mix. (If you are interested check this link out). All of the stories were touching, but one hit me a little different than the others, The Tinfoil Dinosaur. I made the honest mistake of missing my building to continue listening to this story. Three blocks away from my building, I noticed that I had two minutes to make it into the office on time. I decided that once I made it into my office, I would make tea and finish this interesting podcast.
I will give you a little teaser: you will laugh and it features Canadians.
A huge thanks to both Sam and The Moth Podcast for this fantastic episode. It added some extra pep to my step this morning! Keep on keeping on!

The MothPodcast, The Moth is an acclaimed, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.
