Meagan is tied up all week with last-week-of-school activities and performing in a local theater production, so since there’s no new episode this week, we thought we’d revive some older episodes of The Home Hour for those who have started listening more recently.
One of my favorite things about Meagan’s podcast is hearing the speaking voices of bloggers and writers whom I’ve followed online for a while. It’s so fun to listen to their conversations about blogging, writing, motherhood, and all the rest. If you’re curious to hear interviews with Tsh, Kelle, Rebecca, and more, scroll on down to the end of this post and I’ll link to all the blogger interview shows in one big list.
But first, we thought we’d highlight a few episodes you might have missed that might just introduce you to some new people: experts, authors, entrepreneurs, and more! Here are three of my favorites (click the episode title to read the show notes, or click the play button after the episode description to start listening right away!):
Living with Spice with Monica Bhide (Episode 25)
Monica is a cookbook author and food writer and I found her perspective on food, family, culture, and parenting all fascinating. (And no, I didn’t pick this one because it features one of my co-host segments with Meagan where we talk about kids’ birthday parties. Promise.)
I’m a big fan of Kyran’s writing, but this interview goes way beyond author-talk and ends up somehow in a lively discussion of awful 1970’s casserole dishes, food heritage, and Spam. Just listen to it.
(Also, this episode marks the official transition from the old name – The Kitchen Hour – to the current one. The clip below and the show notes explain the back story if you’re interested!)
Creating a Happier Home with Gretchen Rubin (Episode 3)
One of the first interviews Meagan did for the podcast was with bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Happier At Home, Gretchen Rubin. If you’re a fan of Gretchen and her books, you’ll love listening to this fun, informal chat.
Remember, if the whole podcast thing is new to you, Meagan wrote a post about how to find, organize, and listen to podcasts. And if you like The Home Hour, we’d love for you to subscribe!
