This week I have been listening to a lot of podcasts during my morning commute. Almost every morning, without fail, a story gives me chills or makes my eyes watery. I have loved “This American Life” since I first heard it when I was younger. No matter how many more podcasts I am turned onto, “This American Life” always remains my favorite.
I listened to a two part series of “This American Life” that was extremely powerful. They sent reporters into Harper High School in Chicago for 5 months; the year before the reporters were there, 29 kids were shot in and around the neighborhood. They follow a couple students and social workers throughout those months.
Last week I was featured in New York Magazine for a story about international home exchange (I’m on page 3). The point of the story was to showcase what types of overseas home swaps are available to New Yorkers. I chose between homes in Italy, Cambodia and France. Click thru to see which one I chose.
Also, if you look closely, you can see that I forgot to move one of my shoes out of the shot in my bedroom. I guess it gives more of a lived-in look, right?!
