We’ve got a special bonus podcast episode for you!

This is a photo of me and Tally, both bunkered in our respective closet/recording studios, taping a special DIY self-isolation episode of Everything is Fine in which we discuss how we’re getting through this, as well as our celebrity crushes, favorite  bands, and books, and ever so much more. I even give an update on my book. It’s a lot of fun, so please do tune in at Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

    For someone who is perpetually behind with podcasts (me!), it would be lovely if you could number your episodes so I could better keep track of where I am. Thank you!

    I wanted to concur with you, Kim, when you told Tally to stick with a skin regimen for the best results. That was the best beauty advice I got from Lucky. I make myself use up whatever (toner, cleanser, eye cream) before I’ll let myself order something new. And when I don’t love something, I just use larger amounts of it to run out faster — using a facial cleanser as a body wash, or putting a ‘not working’ eye cream all over the back of my hands. One in/one out keeps the clutter down.

    What a pretty picture of you, Kim! I’m halfway through your latest, super podcast and discovered we have the same taste in books. “American Pastoral” is my #1 Roth novel, Jennifer Egan is terrific, loved “The Emperor’s Children” and I was so happy you shone a light on “Blame.” Michelle Huneven was a colleague and friend of mine at the L.A. Times. One of her side hustles was writing about food and restaurants. She’s a great person and a wonderful writer. “Blame” makes a highly discussable book club choice, btw. My celebrity crush? Oscar Isaac. Yes, Daniel Craig is sexy but I interviewed him when his first Bond movie came out and found him a little rough and intimidating for my taste.

      Daniel Craig is the sexiest for me. He was good as an SNL host.

    I so needed this podcast today. Loved every minute. And the question about what y’all will do when this is over––you visiting your mom and Talley going out for a normal dinner in a local restaurant––both poignant for different reasons and both so simple and both perfect answers. (big sighs)

    Just a note, it doesn’t seem to be showing up on Stitcher quite yet.

      Apparently sometimes there’s a delay with Stitcher (and Pocketcasts too), Heather.

    I listened to it this morning on my walk. A bright spot in an otherwise dreary day.

    I will listen to this now, so it will temporarily take my mind off the reality that Virginia has closed K-12 for the rest of the school year, though deep down I knew it was coming. My youngest learns a little differently and has always run a little behind the curve. She made big strides this year and I’m worried about how I can help her keep the momentum going so that she doesn’t lose the ground she worked so hard to gain. Sorry for the spewing…I’m having a moment right now.

      No need to apologize. This is a very difficult situation for you, and the stakes must feel incalculably high. One of my close friends is a school librarian, and she desperately wants to help & connect with her students. Do your daughter’s teachers feel the same? Can you reach out to them? Or parents in similar situations? You are not alone! We are not alone! Someone else is having the same problems. Maybe if we can all find our shared-problem people we can get to solutions? And, flat-out, paralyzing, brain-screaming fear is also going to happen. But it goes away. (If I say that enough, it will be true.)

        Thank you. I truly appreciate your words. I do have some plans in place, which are subject to numerous adaptations, as required. Her reading tutor is working on a one on one session plan with Zoom. I’ve got online resources and she’s doing a great job working on some math and language arts every day. Her teacher is setting up a Zoom meeting later this week with the entire class so they can all see each other – no teaching will be done, just some much needed social interaction. There are solutions, but in this case, there just seems to be soooo much out there that it is simply overwhelming when you try to wade through it. It’s finding that balance between making sure she keeps up and not bogging her down and start hating this process. We’ll get there, but Day 1 after this news, despite fully expecting it, is still emotionally draining. That said, I do believe it is absolutely the right decision.

    I hope there will be a series of Everything is Fine for these times when Everything is Not Fine. You have a long list from the other day, and I know I will want more. Carry on.

    I’m a bit late to this thread but I must concur with others – this episode was delightful and validated a lot of what I’ve been feeling lately. Thank you and please keep the episodes coming!
