New Year’s Resolutions. Some people are all about them – dating more, dating less, going the full Kondo on their undie drawer, ridiculous weight loss plans (THE DIET INDUSTRY IS A SCAM) etc etc. I’m not wild about NYE resolutions – surely self-improvement should be an ongoing thing rather than a momentary promise made due to tradition. I think my aversion to resolutions is not unlike my disinterest in marriage but that is probably a post for another day.
I did resolve last new years to go to more independent theatre, a goal that has no downside (supporting the arts, scoping out different venues, seeing good stuff, potentially seeing bad stuff but learning from it and becoming a better artist myself). With this in mind, I offer you your own resolution – to listen to more podcasts, specifically the Queerstories podcast (subscribe to it, review it, show the love). There’s no downside, you get good content, I get good ratings, everyone wins. Here’s a collection of some of my fave stories to kick off the new year. They aren’t particularly themed, they’re just really great. Get into it.
