I love listening to people tell stories about their lives. And more than that, I love hearing people talk about how they choose to live their lives, why they made that choice, and all of the different ways it has changed throughout their life - that is the best way I can think to describe some of the more involved conversations they have on the podcast.
Along the same lines, RotL was one of the few things I could stand to listen to when I was dealing with the worst boughts of depression. It was the only thing that kept me from staring blankly at the wall for hours until it was time to go to sleep again. For that reason alone it will always have a special place in my heart.
OWL PILLOW! Inspired by the Roderick on the Line episode in which John Roderick tells us about his pillows turning into owls. Bridget’s cross stitch (inspired by the same episode) caught my attention first, so she’s the bigger inspiration to me.
Bonus: Owl Pillows was created the day before I finished embroidering my owl’s beak. PS: I apologize if it looks like Totoro. The ears seem to have made it less owl-y, and the embroidered beak resembles a big nose.
In advance of same, here’s a quick trailer to help you prepare—both for the episode itself, and, more importantly, we want to help you begin to absorb John’s indispensable advice for (maybe, maybe) earning a seat on Super Train.
You just better hope to Christ you bring everything you’ll need.
