In this episode: I’m back at the mic, and spend most of the podcast illustrating, in my own delightful way, exactly why you will find my podcast in the Philosophy section of iTunes. It’s personal, this podcast. If you’re new to the podcast, you can find the early episodes I talked about, A Snow Day and Pulling a Geographic as well as all the rest in the Audio Archive. Here is the amazing TED talk, The Art of Being Yourself.
The Wonders of Electricity Mini-Me
In the market for a dress form? Kennet & Lindsell Ltd make really good ones.
