No. 01 — End Well?


It might sound odd to begin with the topic of endings, but Diana and I do love to turn things upside down.

In this episode, we ponder what it means to end well, why it matters, and why it’s so hard to do. We also reconsider the name of this very podcast, and let you in on our decision-making conversation.

As you’ll find in this episode, we won’t promise when the next installment will come, or whether there will be another. But if you’re leaning one way or the other, go ahead and say so.
