I'm going to go right out there and admit I'm not a fan of housework. I'll give credit where it's due and thank my husband for his constant washing of dishes and my kids for their attention to cleaning the bathroom, but laundry tends to fall on me. I never seem to stay on top of it and find that at least once a week, I have several baskets to fold at once. Since we don't have a laundry room, I have resorted to using my bed to fold - a tip from a friend because you will make sure it all gets put away before bed so you can actually go to bed.
While I often use this time to watch some "mom shows," as my kids call them. In 2021 I am trying to do more listening than watching and have started listening to podcasts while I fold, and in the last few months, I have stumbled on three local podcasts I'm really loving and wanted to share with you. I hope you enjoy them too!
The Collective Co. Podcast is the creation of Racheal Myers, the founder of The Collective Co., a women's co-working and event space opening later this year. Rachael chats with female entrepreneurs on the South Shore in the podcast as they share their stories, tips, and visions. You can also find Racheal on Instagram at @theccsouthshore.
Based in CT but created by a South Shore native, Creative, Happy Life is my favorite podcast for when I need a little happiness in my life. The host Shannon Sorensen is a painter and coloring page artist who oozes creativity. In her podcast, she shares all about living a happy, creative life and has one of the most soothing voices on the planet. You can also find Shannon on Instagram @shannonsorensencreative.
Produced by local radio station WATD local writer and TV personality John Galluzzo shares a brief weekly walk suggestion on the South Shore. The podcast is produced spring through fall, but there is a great archive of pieces to listen to to get us through the winter - and exploring new places on the South Shore.
