I Need New Friends {sorta awesome podcast 01}

Sorta Awesome Podcast - a fun celebration of all things in life that are sorta, amazingly awesome!

My best friend and I used to spend hours and hours talking into a portable tape recorder as we were growing up. Each sleepover consisted of Emily, me, and our tape recorder. The three of us were inseparable. Kinda weird? Yeah, maybe.

Fast forward a couple decades and here I am recording my voice once again. This time I’m hoping that more than just Emily will be listening on the other end. I’m hoping that you will listen!

My dear friend Megan Tietz just launched her brand new weekly podcast, and I am thrilled to be one of her regular co-hosts. For anyone who doesn’t know, a podcast is a recorded audio program that you can listen to on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. Think of it like a radio talk show that you can listen to anytime you want. Personally, I love to listen to podcasts while I am driving, cleaning, grocery shopping, working in the yard, and doing laundry. Podcasts make any boring task better!

Megan’s podcast, titled Sorta Awesome, celebrates all the ways that life is sorta, amazingly awesome. Each week, Megan and her co-hosts will share their awesome find of the week. Then we will answer listener questions.

So, how can you listen to Sorta Awesome?

There are a couple of ways to check it out.

For those who prefer to listen to podcasts through a web browser, just head straight over to the Sorta Awesome Megan Tumblr. This is where all the show notes from each episode can be found as well.

If you like to listen through iTunes, search Sorta Awesome there and you’ll find the first three episodes.

And if you are like me and do your podcast listening on an app, search Sorta Awesome in the Apple podcasts app (comes pre-installed in ios 8), or for Android users, use the Stitcher app and search Sorta Awesome.

If you like what you hear on the show, it would mean so very much to me (and Megan!) if you would take a few minutes to subscribe to the show and leave a rating and review. Ratings and reviews help others find the show.

    1. Not at all. You’ll understand after you listen. Actually, you are a bit of an exception since you watch Big Brother.
