Listen now (14 mins) | Felt chatty, might delete later ;-)
Love the idea of an occasional voice note - I'm all in favor of going with the flow :-) Hugs to you and Baba.
How I enjoyed this None podcast. You have such a warm, kind voice that I could listen to you everyday. Really want to hear more. Love to you and kitty x
Thank you for sharing this! It was so comforting and conversational. My life circumstances are quite different, but I know the feeling you describe. And I am currently dating someone, but feeling the need to be on my own again. So I do appreciate hearing your voice and your thoughts. I do feel that there are many connections in the universe that we don’t realize - and a non-podcast is just one of them!
I love hearing your voice and so glad you felt chatty. I'm finding the Substack podcasting app just a lovely way to record notes (NOT podcasts) to my readers. I've done a few notes, like yours and Jo's - and recorded some of my longer writings, as if reading a book aloud at a coffee house. I look forward to hearing more from you - when you feel the call. :)

I just love listening to your voice, thank you for your non podcast. Sending you a gentle ((((hug)))))
You definitely have a very nice soothing voice but I also very much love reading your posts. So a combination of both would be a win-win for me ;)
As for the Multiverse goes... I do think about other mes in other event spaces from time to time and I believe, that every time I decide to do something and then end up not doing it, (because there's just this pull for me to not go for it), I finish it in one of those other spaces... so it's in the works and is being experienced and I also know that my Soul needs me to experience something else in this timeline. Does this resonate with you as well?
I don’t listen to podcasts because who can listen every week? Especially with brain fog, so occasional voice notes is perfect.
Big parallel universe/multiverse/sci-fi-in-general fan, and other “mes” is something I have considered a lot, for reasons I don’t want to go into publicly - May I dm you on Instagram or something? Also I never wanted to be a mother (at least not since I was a teenager and realised I didn’t *have* to be!)but I wish I was an aunt. Plus my brother would make a grest dad - lovely to think there’s some kids out there that another me is auntie too.
Absolutely loved it, thank you for sharing. This is the first time I hear your voice. Cozy feeling indeed. I really enjoyed the conversational style and your thoughts about what has been going on in your life over the past week or so. I'd love to hear more of you, no topic in particular, just what is going on in your creative brain.
I am a pretty introverted ENFP and the rebel sounded fairly familiar. Creativity has gotten way too little room in my life so far thus I absolutely love how you set up your life. I just turned 40 with the hubby, kid, house, another on the way, somewhat of a career and greatful for what I do have in my life. At the same time, the last year has been very focused on digging through my past and adjusting my outlook on life and perfectionism to give creativity the room that it deserves.
Heartfelt greetings from Germany,
I really enjoyed this, Susannah! I can so relate to what you said about the rebel and commitments. I have the same issue, but never articulated it like you just did so beautifully. There's something comforting about your words, like a feeling of being less alone. It also makes me feel more accepting of myself and my rebel traits. I can also relate with the child issue. I would have had a child of 32. I too have no regrets, but often think about the parallel lives I might have had if I'd taken different roads. I'm so happy to be on the road I'm on now. And glad our paths have crossed! ;)
please don't delete this non-podcast. your words are always so enlightening and your voice is so soothing.
this was lovely, more voice notes please! 💕 in middle age you do look back and wonder what your life could’ve been, only natural to wonder if certain things happened what parallel lives would’ve played out.
Loving the Non-Podcast! Wonderful themes and just the idea of the multiverse delights me. I also had a pregnancy termination at 21 that I have never regretted. In fact, I feel a bit of a hello now and then from a child that I gave a different option than me alone at 21. We are connected somehow. Weirdly, contentedly, and lovingly.
Thank you for this Susannah. I identified with what you have to say so much. I too am an aunty and it's one of the delights of my life. I'm not a mother for various reasons and, although I've come to accept that, I still sometimes miss my imaginary children. I never really miss or think about their child selves much but I find myself curious about the adults they might have grown up to be. Maybe they're out there in another universe doing their things and they get echoes of me. I like that idea. I hope that at least one of them is in a all female blues band. Love to you and your cat. X
What a joy this was. I loved the cosy, conversational tone. Please maker more soon x
Love this non-podcast! I watched Dr Strange too and was very moved as well as fascinated by that whole concept. Thank you for your beautiful thoughts and vulnerability. I always love to hear what you have to say.💖✨
