Podcast Recap

Today is about voices – voices we share, voices we miss, voices that bring our stories to life. And sometimes, Life forces you to let go and face up to how fear of failure can rob you of opportunities. I ponder my own lifelong fear of failure through an emotional tale about my mom’s passing and how that impacted my progress with voice-acting. You will hear a story my mom wrote when I was a kid that I voiced right after she passed to help with my grief and an interview we did together for an episode of Daily Adventure Tales – just so I could hear her voice once more. I’ll share how my voice-acting journey is at present and a snippet from my first professional commercial demo. We will also hear the voices and stories of five BCs, Mary, Susie, Kevin from NY, Jodi from the South, and a BC who is anonymous, who used Speakpipe or called the Bravery Hotline. We’ll wrap up with exciting news from our singer-songwriter in residence Fionna Lane and hear the title track from her new alum, Like a Babe.
Beautiful bright blue sky filled with puffy white clouds above the foothills.

This is the stunning view from the next-to-top Zen place on the day I recorded 130.

I’m smiling despite being eaten alive by flies! But it was fun trying out a new podcast rock and seeing a new view.

Podcast Recap

I let go of being controlled by results after discovering a new podcast rock and battling flies. An update on how I’m doing letting go of eating before eating from last show. The show’s monthly iTunes worldwide review report. A special thank you to an Amazon shopper from the US. Shows from my old podcast, Daily Adventure Tales, are recommended. Welcome to new BC Karen. Guy BCs are encouraged to participate. Comment reactions from last show by Dawny, Dave and eM. What do you do when starting or restarting a fitness program?

Podcast Recap

Live from the Next to Upper Zen spot, I ponder letting go of ‘woe’ and bringing in the ‘yay’ just in time for our first annual Holiday Extravaganza. We get caught up with Kendra the Librarian, Hear greetings from Stéfanie from Quebec, Alen Standish, Mark, and our fake son, Steve. I have fun getting all Jib Jabbery with the holiday selfies. Suz goes on the bravery report for whipping up the courage to speak to us for the first time on Speakpipe before she plays her holiday concert piece, ‘Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ on piano. I put myself on the bravery report for daring to sing ‘Winter Wonderland’. Fionna rounds out our annual concert by singing a great rendition of ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas’ while playing the ukulele. I tell about last year’s Christmas show for Daily Adventure Tales and play a bonus clip of a poem I wrote as a youth called ‘Twas the Groove Before Christmas. Special holiday music by the United States Marine Band.

Podcast Recap

Giving up too easily can be an automatic response and a terrible dream-destroying habit. A special shout-out to Heung, a lady I met hiking after recording last episode. Hear clips from my latest voice acting class with my scene partners Len and Matt and learn why I’m so glad I didn’t give up after last week’s snafu. Welcome to new brave companions Joe, who posted on day 1, and Kelly who shares her story and tells about her new healthy eating blog. Thanks to the latest Coffee Klatch subscriber and I share why it touches me so much, ala Sally Field’s famous best actress win quote. Alen Standish releases our second interview on his show, Progress Not Perfection, and thanks to Cheryl’s great idea, I interview him back for one of my future shows. Hear about my ongoing YMCA live support group and how the first meeting went. Amy from Wisconsin calls the bravery hotline about her stumbles with intuitive eating and how she refocuses. Featured comments from Suz, Cheryl and Stéfanie about negativity, bravery and creativity. Send in some fun Halloween audio or stories if you’d like a special Halloween episode.
