You know when you have a crush on someone and somehow you magic your life so your worlds collide and you do something together? Well that hadn’t happened to me until I was asked to be on the Just a Spoonful podcast with Kaitlyn Plyley earlier in the year. I had SUCH a giddy crush on this podcast. I remember listening to all of the previous episodes the week I discovered the podcast. I loved the interviews with chronically ill and disabled guests. And I love the theme song, which is often stuck in my head for hours after listening. But my biggest crush was on Kaitlyn’s accent! (I now realise I’m on the verge of being one of those micro-aggressors who can’t get past how amazing she sounds – but I swear I see Kaitlyn’s big, creative brain too!) And so can you imagine my excitement when I got to talk to her on the podcast for real?!
“There’s that pressure, you know, because I’ve been given an opportunity to work, been given a lot of opportunities, [that] I have to perform at 120%. I do most of my writing in bed, because I have to conserve that energy … My priorities go, my skin and then my day job, because they have to.”
