When we were in the first year of doing The Kate & Mike Show, I made a list of “Podcast Unicorns” who I dreamed of having on the show.
TBH, I never reached out to ask this week’s guest onto the show, but I held her name close to my heart on my dream list, trusting that the time would come and that when it did, I would know.
Well, my friend, the time came, she said yes, and I’m SO thrilled to be sharing a conversation with you that meant the world to me and that I hope you’ll find as nourishing as I did.
Glennon Doyle, whose new book Untamed is spectacular and has been a #1 NY Times Bestseller for the last 5 weeks, joined Mike and me for a cozy, after-the-kids-were-in-bed conversation where we talked about:
What to do when you feel like you’re going to die because you’re being publicly criticized (on whatever scale)
How to navigate wanting to tell stories about your kids publicly and the line between public and private in the land of the interwebs
The question it’s critical we ask ourselves about people in positions of authority in our lives so that we don’t lose ourselves
How to raise girls who don’t lose themselves (and/or how to help them come back when they do)
Why raising angry girls is a good thing
How to find yourself again when you’ve noticed you’re lost
And so much more!
Glennon’s work has been deeply helpful to me at several critical junctures ever since I first read Carry On, Warrior in 2016, and 4 years later I couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing this conversation with you.
