Tiny Victories

Annabelle Gurwitch, Laura House, Maximum Fun

Tiny Victories is the 15 minute podcast that pushes back on the notion that you have to "go big" or "go home". Sometimes just going is the victory. Each week, hosts Annabelle Gurwitch and Laura House invite listeners to adopt a TINY victory frame of mind, and share tales of fleeting joys and minor accomplishments in this majorly messed-up world.

Coming October 26th!

Plus we’ll hear some titles that listeners recommended via tweet. So curl up around your favorite podcast player and get a writing instrument so you can jot down all the recommendations. Or just listen and come back to this page to find links to authors and books mentioned.Things You Should Stop Worrying About This WeekA Hampster that bested Warren Buffet investing in stocksHow a fake nurse worked for a year before getting caught Canada’s maple syrup shortageWorld War Two-Era explosives on a Jersey Shore beachBooks & Authors Referenced in This EpisodeLiane MoriartyDuped by Abby EllinThe Four Agreements by Don Miguel RuizSing, Unburied, Sing by Jesmyn WardA Visit from The Goon Squad by Jennifer EganRobin HobbAnn LeckieEpisode Sponsor: This podcast is sponsored by BetterHelp, and Tiny Victories listeners get 10% off their first month at BetterHelp.com/TinyDo YOU have a tiny victory to share? Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters.

Do you ever get recurring stress dreams? Annabelle’s been bedeviled by a particular dream for the past twenty years where she’s living in the same studio apartment from another lifetime ago. Recently, however, the dream took a turn for the small, and the studio apartment of her dreams is now a bathroom with a mattress. This week, Laura will attempt to find some way to save Annabelle from her subconscious. That’s right. Laura House will attempt to “inception” Annabelle to more fitful sleep.Do YOU have a tiny victory to share?  Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters.

There’s a fashion trend never seems to die: the prairie dress. The BBC chronicled the popularity of this zombie dress in a piece by writer Addison Nugent entitled The Prairie Look That Keeps Coming Back. To Laura “I Grew Up in Prairie, TX” House, the dress is triggering. And until a few weeks ago, Annabelle felt nothing but hate for it. And then the entire foundation for her antipathy was upended in a single afternoon. Plus, a new listener faces off against her garbage disposal, and lives to tell us about it.Things You Should Stop Worrying About This WeekSad astronautsLearning all the letters of the Greek alphabetWhy a burned-out home in Northern California is getting offers north of $850K Do YOU have a tiny victory to share?  Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters.

Description: This week’s topic was inspired by tweets posted by Cindy Wang Brandt and Annika Hansteen-Izora. They are fans of “The Errand Hang”, and so is Laura House, who has been doing it for years. She and Annabelle get into the psychology of why errand hangs are so fun, and we hear from House’s bff Lovelys. Things You Should Stop Worrying About This Week How many millions of boxes of Girl Scout cookies remain unsoldhttps://www.tampabay.com/news/florida/2021/06/11/city-of-brooksville-accidentally-sells-its-water-tower/The 113 countries whose dogs have been banned from entering the U.S.This week’s episode is sponsored by Owl Crate Jr.Save 15% off on your first subscription or non-renewing gift of Owl Crate Jr., with the code TINY at checkout.Do YOU have a tiny victory to share? Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters.

This week we hear victories about friendship and community from callers Sarah and Wendy. In our first call, Sarah tells us about how worried she was to move to the town of Idyllwild, CA in the during a pandemic. She reached out to her new community on Facebook, and found the resources she needed to fulfill a lifelong dream.We owe our second call to one of Wendy’s amazing friends. In episode 18, Annabelle professed her love of color, and why she got so excited when she recognized that a certain coat happened to be the same shade of yellow as one of Pantone’s Color of the Year 2021. She asked listeners to share their own yellow victories with us, and one of those listeners texted Wendy and told her to listen to the episode. Short story long, Wendy called in with a victory as beautiful and uplifting as it was heartbreaking and sad.Things You Should Stop Worrying About This WeekVenomous spiders that closed down a university libraryA Frasier rebootAnnabelle’s Book Is Finally Out!No need to pre-order it anymore.

If you read Annabelle’s op-ed in the New York Times about being diagnosed with lung cancer, you might be able to infer this year has been a bit much. So why would a friend recommend Annabelle watch the play We’re Gonna Die by Young Jean Lee, in which the playwright talks about her father dying…of lung cancer?With her band, Future Wife, playwright Young Jean Lee takes the stage at Lincoln Center’s LCT3 in a life-affirming show that anyone could perform, about the thing everyone has in common: WE’RE GONNA DIE. You may be miserable, but you won’t be alone.The friend knows Annabelle very wellScience A study from the University of Limerick sheds some light on why sad songs make us happy. In this week’s episode we’ll hear the sad songs that get Laura and Annabelle weepy–in a good way–and a listener tells us why Edelweiss is her go-to sad song. We received lots of responses from listeners on Twitter, and since we don’t have time to squeeze them all into a 15 minute show, we created a Spotify playlist with everyone’s favorites:Tiny Victories Sad Song PlaylistDo YOU have a tiny victory to share?Call the Tiny Victories Hotline: (323) 285-1675We want folks to share their tiny victories on our hotline because, frankly, we’ll assume we’re just talking into the void every week and nothing matters.
