Episode 8: Marie… Marie… Marie?

November 4, 2016

A part 2 of Marie chatting with her friend Marie. This episode, however, is slightly (majorly) off topic, touching on: finding your identity (sometimes through fictional characters), having babies, cat butts, being pro-choice, wedding vows, divorce, how much I love Keith, why anxiety sucks, and so much more. All of these topics are harmoniously discussed with the sound of a creaky swing and a traveling goose band soothing your soul in the background.

Episode 7: Marie, Marie, Marie!

November 3, 2016
Marie gets the rare privilege of interviewing another Marie. Marie Kent is the host of "My Book of Mormon" podcast, a former fundamentalist, and my coworker! She was also my guest on the first episode. We talk about our use of podcasts to process our religious childhoods. Links below:


Episode 6: Planning & Ranting

October 27, 2016

Lots of stuff today. Starting out with 30 minutes of Keith and I taking a walk and brainstorming different themes to touch on in a documentary we are working on which will be about reclaiming things from religion if you are a non-believer or if you have deconverted. Followed by 20 minutes of me this morning trying to figure out why I feel like shit, so listing off all the stuff that is stressing me, then followed by 45 minutes of me this afternoon listing even more things that are contributing towards me feeling like shit. The last 20 minutes of that are kind of my favorite. I get into a pretty sweet rant. In total: 90 minutes. Making up for not having posted in a month. Enjoy!


Episode 5: Meet My Husband

September 11, 2016

This episode consists of 2 recordings, both done with my husband. The first conversation is about the creative process and the second is about sex. No biggie. Whatever.


Episode 4: What Is This Podcast, Anyway?

August 28, 2016

If you have ever wondered what the fuck this podcast is about and who the hell I am, this is a great place to start. Any why wouldn't it be? It's Episode 4 after all. Then get super bored as Marie satiates her need to speak Spanish for a few minutes. Lastly, hear some thoughts about how to be curious about beliefs that others have that you disagree with.

If you'd like to submit a recording for a future episode or do a segment with Marie, please email at freshouttruestories@gmail.com

Episode 2: Merry Christmas, Grandma

August 9, 2016

A potpourri of stories and songs. Join my 10 year old self as I sing for my grandparents. Listen to my friend's story of a fundamentalist wedding she attended. And find out what I'm doing with my hair next!


Episode 1: How to Podcast Shit Shittily

August 6, 2016

Every idea I had was squashed by perfectionism. So I got drunk. And this is the result. It will evolve since it is not for those who listen so much as it is for me a method of catharsis and artistic expression. So *shrug* I hope you enjoy it, but it's cool if you don't, too. Swears and acknowledges the existence of my sexuality
