Gretchen’s combo Demerit and Gold Star: On a long car trip, I earned a gold star by doing the research ahead to identify a great podcast for us to listen to, which was Limetown; I earned a demerit for being very short-tempered while driving (which often happens to me in the car, for reason I explain in my book Happier at Home).
Remember, I’m doing weekly live videos on my Facebook Page about the podcast. To join the conversation, tune in Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. Eastern.
