This week on Everything is Fine

8

We’ve got singer/songwriter/author Amy Rigby (her memoir, Girl to Cityis one of my favorite books of recent years) on the show, and we’re talking about nostalgia, and how creativity changes as you age, and so much more, and it’s a really nice warm hug of an episode. Do tune in, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    she’s great. she is who she was meant to be – even at 65. Inspiring.

    rough times we live in, but I hope her kid has a kid – bc Amy would be a great grandma and kids need cool grandmas.

    Kim, I don’t think anyone has mentioned this before, but it bugs me enough to bring it up.
    I enjoy your podcasts and listen to them regularly, mainly enjoying them. However one thing bothers me: The way overuse of the F word. Ok, I am no prude: I mean “fuck” and “fucking”. There is definitely a time and place for that word, and the others….But I feel it is overused.
    Am I the only one to have mentioned this?
    How about trying to be creative and come up with other words to make your point? The F word is just so easy—
    I remain a fan, but just had to mention this.

      Apologies in advance, Linda, and Kim may have a better chance with this, but I was raised low-class by cussing wolves, and at this age — old dogs, all that— I’m probably not shaking the trash (mouth).

    Excellent pod cast––much appreciate hearing from an artist about their life as it really is. I have been fortunate to be on the periphery of the creative world the whole of my adult life and it still slays me how artists/creatives of every discipline are so under supported, yet those are the exact people we turn to for their art, their songs, their films etc. when a crises like Covid hits. I can feel myself gearing up to launch into a full on rant, instead I’ll take myself off to fold some laundry and wash some dishes whilst I listen to a playlist or a podcast or an audio book. (sigh)

    A friend and I went to see Amy read/perform in Pittsburgh a few years ago, after you mentioned her memoir. We each bought a copy of her book and enjoyed it very much — highly recommend. It goes on the shelf with Patti Smith’s Just Kids and other memoirs of creative young people making their way.

    It’s inspiring to hear her talk honestly about the creative life (and the financial struggles) as an older person, something that I’m hungry to hear about, being in the same position.

    I just wanted to encourage others to check out her music and her blog. And here’s “Summer of My Wasted Youth” for anyone who hadn’t tracked it down yet:
