100.1 (Show #100)

It’s our 100th show!

We look back over the past 100 episodes (and the past 8 years) and talk about our predictions that we made in 2008, and how things have changed and not changed over that period of time. And we make some predictions about the next 100 episodes.

Shout out to the Arts Guild New Jersey for their excellent adult art classes.

We really want to hear from you, our 10 listeners! What would you like us to talk about?

P.S. Thanks very much to pop culture website Biff Bam Pop! for helping us celebrate our 100th episode.

Working Together & RIOTS!!! (Show #94)

Did you ever wonder how these audacious women got together as friends in the first place?

It actually came about because of a group that sponsored a musical play that was to be presented at a pagan festival.  Mary was the director, Wendy was the composer and musical director, Donna was one of the singers and Robin was part of the sponsoring group. They didn’t really know each other when rehearsals started, but had so much fun, the rest is history.

Now, many years later, Wendy and Mary will be creating a new theatrical piece, with the encouragement and support of Robin and Donna. Like the Fool Card that keeps showing up in their Tarot readings, they will take a leap of faith together.

The topic of the play they are creating is based on an event in New York’s Civil War history that has much to do with the politics today. It touches on class wars and race riots, the sources of hate and the need for healing.

The links to some of the topics we mention in the podcast are as follows:

Show #70: What Hollywood Does To Our Beloved Books

This week on the Audacious Eleven, it’s a books and film geekfest. What do we think of what happened to The Hobbit,  Harry Potter, Dr. Doolittle, & Dune when they made the journey from the page to the screen? How do graphic novels and short stories fare? We talk about some of the problems inherent in changing media. Bad casting vs great casting. When what you see in your head when you read a book doesn’t match up to what the director put up on screen. Adaptations, good and bad. Listen to us opine and let us know what makes your Top 10 list and what should have been left on the cutting room floor.

Show #63: Journaling

In this episode, we discuss the merits of keeping a journal, and the styles of journals we like to keep – whether they are shared or private, electronic or paper, and how reviewing them periodically can help us identify patterns, especially those that need to change. Also how surprising it is to think that you’ve changed and then discover how much you haven’t.
