Ok folks – I just finished writing this encouraging email to Jjiraffe after her last post. I told her to screw those people. That if she wants to do something she should just do it.
After writing that email I realized what I freaking hypocrite I am. Sometimes I’m so scared of my own shadow I can barely get out of bed let alone pursue stuff I love. And that’s just stupid. So -I have decided to take my own advice.
Let me explain:
I’m a podcast junkie. I love them. I listen to them all the time. I’ve even written here before that I wanted to create my own podcast.
So the truth is I have an idea for one. I’ve had one for a while.
When you search for “infertility” on itunes what you get is a load of Circle and Bloom rip offs and nothing of note. This is one realm that needs to be taken over by us! Yes! We must rule the airwaves! Or something!
So I’d officially like to announce the launch of “Bitter Infertiles” a weekly podcast hosted by yours truly, and starring…. Well – I hope starring a few of you.
I want to cover all realms here. So I’d love to break down the cast like this:
- An RPLer (that’s me!)
- A woman currently beginning to pursue IVF (that’s one of you guys!)
- A woman currently beginning to pursue adoption (you again!)
- A woman who is parenting after adoption/IVF (guess who that would be – you!)
- Other possibilities: Women currently pursuing DE or DS, women choosing to stop treatments and live child free, women pursuing surrogacy.
Whoever wants to be a part of this needs to be willing to go on tangents with me, be a confident talker, and have about an hour a week plus a couple of hours prep time. And please don’t let your insecurities here get in the way. Don’t worry – I’ll talk you through it. You just need to be game.
So? Who’s in? Email me and let’s get this show on the road!
