Marriage | 221
Crystal and Tsh are in different stages of their respective marriages, so in this chat, Crystal talks about things she didn’t know about marriage when she was younger — the things MANY of us don’t realize until we live through it in our marriages. And since Tsh and her husband recently celebrated their 17th anniversary, she shares some of the practicals of what’s working for them right now, specifically in regards to communication and having more fun.

Hosting a Farm-to-Table Dinner + Nouns & Verbs |220
Christine and her family host Kindred Dinners on their farm, where over a hundred people gather for a true farm-to-table feast with live music, locally-made beer, and beyond. She talks about what it’s like to put on an event like this in your own space. Then Tsh shares two seemingly opposite ideas: ignoring the noun and focusing on the verb, and embracing the noun in order to accomplish the verb. It has nothing to do with grammar.

YA Books for Adults + Adult Books for YA | 219
Nicole has a fantastic bookstagram account, and she particularly loves reading the Young Adult genre. So in this chat, she and Tsh talk about why so many adults like them love to read YA, along with lots of recommendations for dipping your toes into the YA waters as an adult reader. Tsh then shares a list of adult book recommendations for teens who love to read — books written for adults, but are appropriate enough, and potentially interesting enough, for teen readers.

Gathering IRL | 218
Katherine created a mom’s group in her small town, where everyone’s welcome, they provide fabulous childcare, and it’s all about building relationships, not a program. In this chat, she shares the nuts and bolts of how to start something similar wherever you live. And Tsh shares what she’s learned from gathering people for events — for things like week-long adventures in London, and in weekend retreats in her small town, like she’s doing for the first time ever the weekend this episode drops. In all this, there’s a thread: IRL relationships > pixels.

My Good List | 217
Caroline Starr Rose has written six children's books, and her most recent one just came out. Like we do on the show every now and then, she shares with Tsh her Good List: a thing, a habit, a work of art, and a philosophy that’s making her life just a little bit sweeter. They also talk about her new book, which is completely up 4th grade Tsh’s alley — she was a big fan of the historic figure Caroline writes about.
