Keep sending your stories, from wherever you are. Sing a song. Record a phone call, or an argument, or your thoughts in the middle of the night. Say the location and the date at the beginning. And tell your friends to send their tape too. I’m hoping we make something that sounds like what’s happening. Send me your recordings at email@example.com, and if you cant figure out how to do it, just email and we’ll figure it out together.
Such an intimate sharing of humanity across the world among those listeners who are alone is very comforting. Thank you, Erica.
I can’t stop crying. Thanks for helping me feel when I could so easily tune out.
Stunningly beautiful work Erica, thank you!
I just listened to #6. I feel emotional. Grateful. What a beautiful, heart-opening experience. When I hear honest voices speaking truth about their particular version of these days it’s a tremendous gift. Your show, your efforts continue to move me. I have enjoyed every one of these installments. I have felt grateful to you each time. I hope you are well. We are well here in Jericho living as a 4 person pod; sons home from college. Not always comfortable but certainly a gift.
Thanks so much.
