First of all, thank you all for the amazing feedback on the first episode! Eddie was a great interview. He's got personality that jumps through the microphone, so he made it easier on me. But I'm glad you guys are all liking it, and I've gotten a bunch of messages from folks telling me that it's helping them and they found it funny, enjoyable, and enlightening. Makes me feel like my ass ain't just hangin' in the wind for nothin'. So thank you! And I appreciate ALL feedback, so if you have constructive criticism, I wanna hear that too. I know a bunch of you are avid podcast listeners, so feel free to drop me a line and let me know if you've got suggestions for me. Either leave me a comment on this blog or email me at email@example.com.
Without further ado, I present Episode 2, Sarah. Sarah is a friend of mine who is going through Stage IV breast cancer. A family friend and cancer researcher told her in her early twenties, after a bout of cervical cancer and benign breast lumps, that her cancer would inevitably come back, probably in her early forties, so she'd better live the way she wanted to live for the next 20 years. So she went out and made her life exactly what she wanted of it---starting a number of businesses, traveling the world, partying with the jet set, and eventually making her way to Europe to train to become a sommelier.
The result was a life less ordinary, a great outlook on life, and some ridiculously cool stories. And even though, yes, cancer is back in her life, she still has a great attitude. So pop in those earbuds and give our interview a listen, won't you?
