Traveling Solo and Pushing Personal Limits with Kristin Newman!

Episode: 33

There’s something to be said about being single in your thirties. There’s the rush of not knowing who you’re gonna kiss next, and the freedom to do whatever the hell you want whenever the hell you want. But looking for your counterpoint on the Earth can be exhausting and annoying, too.

On today’s show, we explore this dichotomy. What romantic wins from the last six weeks – the last time the two of us were together live in the studio before Ben took off to perform in Maine – can we celebrate? What challenges have arisen from breaking out of the patterns we usually function within?

Then we’re joined by Kristin Newman, the author of the memoir What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding. While many of her friends got hitched and started popping out babies, Kristin traveled the world, pushing herself into experiences that she would never dare embrace at home. What did overcoming fears, meeting people from around the world, and “doing the thing you’re supposed to do in the place you’re supposed to do it” teach her about love? Have a listen to find out.

Our Spring/Summer Theme Song is Josh Dion’s GIVE LOVE! We both fell hard for Josh’s insane drumming skills and deliciously expressive vocals (smooth like honey, ladies, and then wild and raucous as hell) way back when we first moved to NYC, dancing our hearts out to the Josh Dion Band all over town. Now he performs all over NYC (and in residency at Rockwood Music Hall) as Paris Monster. Find, chat, listen, and buy on Twitter and iTunes.”

Married people are just inherently more boring to talk to than single people, so I feel more boring. [28:13] – Kristin Newman
