Nora McInerny is an author (No Happy Endings, Bad Moms), social entrepreneur (, and the creator and host of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking.

We discuss choosing to do less, missing encounters with random strangers, how our days are still as full as ever, why resilience is often misunderstood, hoping for more humane ways of being in a post-pandemic world, the joys of homeschooling, and how comfort and laughter is both welcomed and in high demand right now.

From our Conversations With Quarantined Creatives series.
