We’re back! So glad to get back to regular podcasting, and also really excited about this new format. Let us know what you think in the comments below! (And yes, we know the sound isn’t super stellar in this episode—apologies.)

But first—Megan’s found a gem of a book about parenting tweens:

how to hug a porcupine

How to Hug a Porcupine by Julie Ross (make sure it’s by Julie—there’s FOUR books on Amazon with the same name!)

Also, glasses!

And haircuts! And nose piercings! At seedy tattoo parlors!

Kara went and got herself some green hair.

Head here to check out Notes From a Blue Bike.

…and don’t forget to check out Audible! So glad to have them as a sponsor.

    After my dog ate a pair of my reading glasses, I started buying my reading glasses at the Dollar Tree. My current pairs look like both of your glasses. The eye doctor told me he thinks I will need real glasses in a year or two, but I want to stick with cheap reading glasses as long as I can.

    Great to have you back! What was the blogpost about green-head :)?

  3. Great stuff Tsh! Especially love the question and answer bit – because as lovely as it is to hear from your guests, we’re also in this for more of your refreshing wisdom

  4. I loved the new song and I’m so glad you’re ‘back’! I would also second the ‘shorter but more frequent’. :) And yay for the nose piercing. I got mine back when I was 19, and I’ve just realized I’ve had it for 10 years now, and I don’t feel a day older. Weird.

  5. Love having the old podcasters back. It feels like catching up with friends. The new song and sponsor are fun. Thirding the “shorter but more frequent” sentiment.

    You both have sparkle!

    Love the podcast, here’s my only suggestion- have your guest podcaster weigh in on the question too. Definitely enjoy listening to the Joy and Tracy having different ideas and opinions on their podcast with the questions asked. Thanks!

  7. Great podcast. Appreciate the new format. Thanks for doing what you do. Hope you can swing it on your upcoming journey!

  8. Oh my gosh, Tsh! I JUST got my nose pierced too! (At age 37…) And it was so similar to your experience. I’ve wanted it for a while, but kept putting it off. Worried people would think I was trying to look younger . . . too worried about what people would think. Now I’m SO glad I finally did it. Cheers!

  9. This podcast totally bummed me. Just when I was getting into it – it ended :( I know people are saying shorter but more frequent. But you know you won’t be able to make them more frequent so it’s just less content. I absolutely love this podcast and you and the other women are so inspiring! I wish you were able to do it weekly but I know that’s not possible. Please go back to longer podcasts! The question and answer thing was fine but you should do the questions with your co-host if you are going to do them. Thanks! Keep up the great work :)

    Love the new format! Shorter is better for me. I just ordered the book your guest mentioned in this podcast. Thanks for sharing these conversations with the public!

  11. I’ve been a long time listener to your podcasts – love them, and this one was characteristically fun. I am sad that they’re shorter – if I couldn’t finish one in one sitting, I was thrilled to have another 20 or so minutes left to listen to later. But yes, maybe at least keep the co-host on for the question so the show feels a little longer, and of course, podcasting more often would be great! Thanks so much for these!

  12. Oh, Oh! I had another idea. 😉 Maybe you could run the show with the co host the full 40 minutes and then save up a few listener questions and do a “Listener Question Show” with just yourself as an extra podcast, thus podcasting a little more regularly without have to schedule/coordinate with cohosts. Please? :)

  13. I can’t say I really understand the shorter, more frequent podcasting advice, especially since it won’t be more frequent. I prefer the longer episodes that I can listen to when I have time. I don’t feel like I need to listen to it all in one sitting. And I like the suggestions about answering questions with the guests, somehow it just sounds empty when it’s just Tsh talking. (Listened to both new episodes.

    Love the new format and catchy little opening tune. Keep up the great work! You are so inspiring.

    Just a little note on graying: I read a fun and fascinating book several years back by Anne Kreamer called “Going Gray”. She does surveys and talks with fascinating undyed women about our perceptions of hair colour and aging. Just thought I’d tell you about it in case the to-read book list ever seems to short. :)
