Description

And The Next Thing You Know is a podcast about how our lives go exactly not as we planned them. No matter how hard we cling to our plans for college and career and relationships and creative goals, it's actually the disruptions in our lives, the wrenches and the tangents, that throw us in a different direction and force us to inhabit these beautiful, messy, trauma filled, disappointing, gorgeous, sexy lives, despite ourselves.

The first episode of Suzie Sherman's podcast is all about how to live a creative life, honoring parts of your experience that don't necessarily fit into a ladder climbing mentality. I love all of this so much, starting from Suzie's laughter that opens the show.
