Feeling all the feelings
and getting my party pants ready
ROCK PAPER RADIO is a dispatch for misfits & unlikely optimists by your favorite hapa haole, beet-pickling, public radio nerd. It’s a weekly email newsletter and podcast that shares three curiosities every Thursday - something to hold on to (that’s the ‘rock’), something to read (that’s the ‘paper‘), and something to listen to (you guessed it, that’s the ‘radio’). Themes include but are not limited to: rebel violinists, immortal jellyfish, revolution. Thanks for subscribing and spreading the word. Learn more at RockPaperRadio.com.
Happy Wednesday, misfit fam. I’m in your inbox in the middle of the week because today is a VERY SPECIAL DAY. Tonight’s the night! Our debut episode of Odd One In is dropping (at laaaasssttt!) and we’re having a party! There’s still time to RSVP. Here’s the link to all the details.
We’ll be at Nectar Lounge in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Doors at 7:00pm. We’ll be giving away free copies of What to Read in the Rain from the Bureau of Fearless Ideas. Copies are first come, first served, so get there early and let’s have a cheers before the show starts.
And in case you’re looking for Something to Listen To and a little sneak preview of today’s program, here’s 6-minutes Keri and I recently recorded while sweating in our makeshift recording studio (AKA our 10+-year-old Jetta): Recording in cars with girls.
I’m not usually inclined to put un-edited #content out in the the world that I haven’t obsessed over into oblivion, but this felt like the right fit for this moment. I’m all about balance! So since this 25-min first Odd One In episode we’re debuting tonight has literally been in production for almost a year, WHY NOT share a little ridiculous car convo and glimpse into our Wife Life as a lead-in. We’re going wild out here, friends. This is what personal event planning does to me. 🚨Warning: it gets a little soft and squishy at the end. She does that to me.
So! I hope to see you all tonight—old friends, new friends, RPR subscribers I’ve only chatted with through this misfit dispatch. If you make it, please track me down and say hi. I’ll be the one nervous/excited/glowing inside of all of your energy and probably wearing something weird.
Onward to the party!
