Beginning with a sort of mini documentary of me getting a colonoscopy (I'm healthy. It's a long story, explained within.), this episode is likely one of the first podcasts to provide an audio chronicle of what the day before one of those things is like. Maybe one of the last to do it as well.
This week my walking companion is Katina Corrao. Much has been written about her positivity, but what is sometimes left out is just how much loss she has experienced in her life. We bond over the grim and I marvel at the horsepower of her attitude. I hate the word "attitude," but she helps me accept it again.
This episode was recorded on January 27, 2016 and February 22, 2016 and is one of the longer ones I've done with a guest. And for good reason. Hang in till the end or just treat it like two back to back episodes, maybe.
Music this week by Aaron Campbell, A guy drumming at the West 4th Stop, and Direwires

Welcome back to what’s your yarn worth? w/ me, your host, andy farnsworth. I’ve been sort of reverse-groundhogging my way back into the world this Spring. Hope you're good. Margaret Dodge is my traveling companion this week.
Recorded in two parts: October 25th, 2015, on a visually and aurally beautiful day in Central Park; then, deeper into our respective issues and into the belly of her new apartment/feral cat cave at the end of February 2016. Basically, this episode bookends several months of substantial emotional fermentation.
Anyway, I’m making some progress and Margaret has become a good friend and has been pretty helpful with that. She's funny and easy to talk to.
