What’s your favorite podcast lately?

Oooh, thank you for giving me the opportunity to shout out the amazing podcasts my friends are making! My favorite podcasts lately are "Baby Geniuses" with Emily Heller and Lisa Hanawalt for comedy, "Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso" for in-depth interviews, "Sick Day with Dan Fishback" for crazy smart conversations, "Last Row" with Christine Werthman and Josh Morrissey for pop music analysis, and "Carless in LA" by Alex Wand, and I am a guest storyteller on an upcoming episode!

What are you working on that you're really excited about?

So many things! Help! Well, I've been working on my jump shot in basketball. That's hit or miss. I've been working on centering clay on the wheel, which has been going very well. Turns out the center CAN hold. I've also been working on killing my ego, but I'm afraid I might get convicted for murder in the first person! Ok, ok, I'll stop, but those first two things are real, the first part of the third thing is kind of real too, and also I'm writing a book.

You've worked as a musician, poet, launched cool apps. It seems like you're really great at focusing on different projects at the same time. Do you have any advice for people who struggle with time management? I say this as someone who struggles with time management.

I have always been really bad at doing a single thing, so it's actually very easy for me to work on several things simultaneously. It's my way of never failing, but also never really succeeding. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
