We are truth seekers, spiritual explorers, and reality shapers, just like you.
You likely agree that simple conversations can be powerful. Some of the best insights emerge over a beer with friends, and lightning bolt ideas are often sparked in ordinary moments. Wisdom lurks in the corners of flittering thoughts and, indeed, Much is revealed in the Little escapades of life.
And so here we are. This podcast was born from airplane downloads and built by following the fun. In each episode we meander into the playful exploration of what this Life is all about, and we invite you to join the conversation.
This is How We Roll:
Maura: This is the part of the show where we check in to see what wants to bubble up. We start pedaling the bike, asking inspiration and intuition to take over and guide the journey.
Anne: Totally. What I love about The Little & The Much is that we don’t plan our episodes. We simply show up and whatever wants to come through gets to come through. Topics that neither of us could have or would have come up with on our own have a way of rising to the surface. The show has a life of its own, and the conversation is as much a discovery for us as it is for our listeners!
Open to a Page
Anne: I love our Open to a Page segment, because it’s basically a conversation with Life (with a capital L). We show up like, “Okay Life, whatchu got for us?” Then we open up a random book to a random page and read what good ol’ Life wants us to hear.
Maura: Have you ever heard stories where people say that a book literally “jumped” off a shelf in a bookstore and they read it and knew it was for them? This is a playful shout out to that process, where we see what pops out in our surroundings, and it doesn’t have to necessarily be a book. One of these days we may just read the back of a cereal box or beer bottle label! Wisdom lurks in things little and much.
Do We Give a Duck?
Maura: When we shot our cover art at the Metro Hotel in Petaluma, there were some big plastic ducks in the courtyard pond. We knew these had to be in the shoot. Like wonderful dorks, we began playing with the ducks in some of the photos and then asking the question, “Do we give a duck or not?”
Anne: As soon as we started joking around about it, I was reminded of this amazing article by Mark Manson called “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck.” In fact, this article is the perfect example of the light-hearted deep wisdom that we hope to capture in The Little & The Much. Hey, if you know Mark, tell him we want to have him as a special guest!
I Love Myself When
Anne: We went to Vegas and, whenever Maura was overcome with joy, she’d spontaneously shout, “I love myself when I’m playing Blackjack!” Or, “I love us when we drink wine and pull oracle cards on the Strip!” What a fun way to express joy, AND a permission slip to declare our awesomeness. My mom always says, “If you don’t toot your own horn, it might not get tooted.” So yeah, we put that in the show.
Maura: This is the part where we get to do a little shout out to ourselves and hopefully in the process, encourage our listeners to do the same for themselves. It feels very audacious and that makes me very happy, because I truly mean it when I say it.
