Where It All Began

"Anything But Routine" was originally conceived as a traditional podcast, and I wrote, narrated, and produced three seasons before deciding to change formats altogether.  But I love the stories I was fortunate enough to share during the old-school ABR and decided to preserve them here.  Below is the original description blurb as well as all three seasons - you can listen to each episode here, or you can still find and download the original ABR on Anchor, Apple Podcasts, Breaker, Castbox, Google Podcasts, Overcast, Pocket Casts, PodBean, RadioPublic, and Spotify.  Enjoy!

In three short years, I, as a middle-aged woman, have done the following: 1) moved from my own solitary home in the city to my love's 100-year-old farmhouse in the country; 2) left my normal, full-time job to become a voice actor; and 3) survived breast cancer.  In my new life, which is anything but routine, I invite you to join me in focusing on the positive and the good - the people, places, and things that, in such a negative world, are also anything but routine.
