With all the nerdery in the news this week, I decided to take a break from my normal ramblings and nerd out a little bit. This week saw trailers dropped for the upcoming Disney sequel, “Mary Poppins Returns.” We also got the first trailer for the next film from Marvel studios, “Captain Marvel.” And finally we got an announcement that Netflix would be working with the show’s original creators to make a live-action series of “Avatar: The Last Air Bender.” I take a small sidebar to inform you of a tragedy that struck a podcasting brother in the form of Hurricane Florence. And last but certainly not least, in Recommended Listening, I actually talk about a show that I edit. (No I’m not being paid to do it either.) This week’s feature goes to “Leap Like Me” with Lisa Hoashi.
Leap Like Me with Lisa Hoashi is a weekly podcast about the leaps people take in life to go after what they really want. Their leaps include taking a sabbatical; a radical career change; launching a creative or entrepreneurial project; and moving somewhere new. Here they share their biggest fears, obstacles, surprises and payoffs when they took their leap.
