pandemic holidays

stick around long enough and you’ll find i’m a big fan of npr programming, particularly the music.

i also happen to love “life kit” which are short podcasts that cover life topics of interest to various npr employees. each episode is hosted by the employee with the interest and there are usually tips and an expert speaker.

you might have also seen my “postcards from next door” videos that i post almost every morning – brief inspiration, quick quotes, amusing anecdotes – all in approximately 60 (or fewer) seconds. lately i’ve been addressing holiday season stuff along with the pandemic. today i came across this excellent episode of “life kit” about pandemic holidays that i’m sharing here for you!

(for some reason, embeds from spotify are spotty – sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t – i’ve had posts even on this blog with embeds that work fine and others that don’t work and some that work intermittently – anyway, i’m including the link since this one doesn’t seem to want to embed – go listen!)
