Four years ago Sam stumbled upon a book called “Big Magic”. From it, Talk Easy was born. Today we come full circle in sitting with beloved writer Elizabeth Gilbert. Both in her fiction and non-fiction work, Gilbert seeks a kind of radical honesty. She’s irrepressibly curious, a searcher of stories. On this week’s podcast, those stories come in all different shapes and sizes: an appreciation for her current solitude; a re-examination of how her parents shaped the woman she is today; why she felt like a failure after getting a divorce, followed by the freedom she found on the heels of “Eat, Pray, Love”. Gilbert also candidly reflects on the love of her life—Rayya Elias—who sadly passed away two years ago.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
