with your host Janelle Hardy

Welcome to the Memoir Body, Healing Story Podcast.

(formerly the Personal Mythmaking Podcast)

I believe that honest conversations of depth are good medicine – they’re the antidote to feeling alone with personal challenges that are more appropriately situated in cultural, societal and historical contexts.

I believe these conversations can be catalysts for learning, growth and communion.

Join me as I chat with published and in-progress memoirists, storytellers and healers about memoir writing, healing, embodiment, somatics and story.

People in conversation about the things that shape them – these are conversations that matter – personal, transformative and honest.

Episodes 89 and up are coming soon!

The Personal Mythmaking Podcast (episodes 1-88) followed a very specific format.

I asked my female and non-binary guests the same four questions, and together, we followed the intriguing threads of story and curiosity as they unspooled.

  • Whose traditional (Indigenous) territory are you on?
  • What’s your favourite fairytale/ancient tale?
  • What’s your relationship with your body like?
  • And what’s your connection to your creativity?

These potent conversations were created by mixing creativity + the body + fairy tales + conversation with wild abandon.

Please help the podcast reach more people. Here are three ways to make that happen:

Click the podcast follow button on iTunes.

These next two actions can only be done inside iTune’s podcast listening app. You’ll need to open the app, go to my podcast, then scroll way down until you see the option to offer a star review and written review. Then…
Give it 5-stars.
Write a review.

If you don’t use the iTunes app, do those same things inside whichever app you use for your podcast listening.

Thank you! This podcast is a labour of love (and podcasts are a lot of work!)
