Can I Laugh On Your Shoulder?

May 24, 2023

Welcome to Episode 350! I can’t believe we’re here. I’m coming up on 7 years in podcasting, which is incredible, and I’ve had the chance to talk with so many amazing people. 

Every 10 episodes I do a solo show. And it’s really just me! No team. No people sitting nearby. Just me sitting by myself at my desk in my office/recording studio. I wanted to do something fun for this episode, so we’re doing a “Get to know me” show.

2:02 – Get to know me

  • Back in high school, I created my own website on GeoCities. People used to share fun “get to know me” info.
  • Let’s jump into some questions you have about me!

5:11 – Am I named after anyone?

  • No, I’m not named after anyone. My name is Irish. My parents always wanted to have a girl named Molly.

5:33 – Do I have kids?

  • Yes, Lily and Amos. And two boys, Elijah and Malachi, who went to Heaven during pregnancy.
  • I always wanted 5 kids, so I adopt my friends’ kids.

  • I have several “granny habits,” like canning, cooking and food preservation.

I love doing this podcast. I get to sit down with so many cool people.

I cry all the time. I’m a sympathy crier.

Do I use sarcasm? Not as much as my husband.

I have developed what I call “granny habits” over the last couple of years. I really like to can and cook and do food preserving.
