Of Resolutions and Podcasts
In my life away from Exponent and Mormon Feminism, where I make the money to pay the bills, I am an organizer. I organized largely for business professionals: their desks, their calendars, their files, and their kitchens, closets, and basements. I love my work.
In my own life, I also organize. My dresses are hung on matching hangers – in color order. My socks are all folded the same way – in thickness order. My calendar is color coded with times and addresses listed – and agendas outlined in notes.
I had one goal on January 1, 2014: Never Be Behind – on Anything. This means that inboxes are always clean in my 5 email accounts, my birthday cards are out the door on time, I send follow up notes immediately after the meeting, and I’m up on all blog readings and current events. I chased this goal down all year and did a pretty good job …. but, of course, it eluded me.
For 2015, my friends tell me I should change my goal to: Be Realistic. And I respond: Boring.
So, I will try again to “Never Be Behind”. I know it’s out of reach, but I love the challenge. One area that is hard for me: keeping up on news – Mormon and otherwise. So, in 2015, I’m going to try more podcasts. I’d like to listen rather than trying to read it all.
And here’s where I need your help, dear reader: choosing the best podcasts.
What are your favorite podcasts – in the Mormon World and in the World World?
