Podcast premiere: Doing Gentle with an Edge

At long last, I got iTunes to accept my RSS feed of Doing Gentle with an Edge.

So. Now it’s here. My pod. My very own podcast. 

I’ve been on a few podcasts, but have never had my own. Until now. So I am so proud that I’ve gotten this far! Because this is me, shipping, to use the Seth Godin-term. Putting it out there for the world to hear. (And yes. It is scary. But this is the second of my brain children I’ve been birthing into the world this month, so hey, I am getting the hang of this. Each time, it gets a bit less scary, but always, always, the feeling of champagne bubbles coursing through my body is there!)

I’ve gotten a lot of help in the process.
A Google+ reader commented on a Doing Gentle blog post sometime in 2016, urging me to record it, because – she said – she just knew it would come across differently when read aloud, the beauty and rhythm of my texts.
Søren Lassen Andreasen has helped me record, edit and produce the episodes – and boy has he been patient with my nit-picking to get everything sounding as good as possible.
Olof Jennfors has written the pod soundtrack.
Anders Roos took the picture of me, that I’m using as the pod artwork at the moment.

I’ve described the show thus:
Learning how to do gentle towards yourself can be, for you, the key to loving living life. At least, that’s what doing gentle did to me, Helena Roth, once I understood that it was actually an option.

Imagine having turned 30+ before ever realizing it’s possible to be gentle with myself. From that moment in time, I’ve re-learned how to be in the world – both inside and outside of myself. Here I will be sharing the tools and tricks I’ve picked up along the way, hoping it will help you transform from a victim of the epidemic of harshness into a proud practitioner of doing gentle.

Will you listen?
(Please. Listen.
Let me know what you think, what you like/dislike.
Share it if you think it’s worth sharing, or I am worth supporting.)

    I will listen! WOW!

    I love podcasting, used to have one … and maybe I will again 🙂 But first: I´ll listen to yours.

      Thank you!

      What made you start to pod? And what made you stop? And what would you pod about if you started a new one?

    Äntligen är den här, din podcast! Grattis! Jag klickade på spotify-länken men blev mött av att jag var förbjuden att gå in där. Kanske något att kolla upp?

    Jättegrattis! Så roligt. Jag lyssnade på dig på Spotify och letade efter att kunna prenumerera på dig. Hittade ingen knapp. Ska man inte kunna göra det?

      Jo, det kan du! Hos mig heter det “FÖLJ” och ligger som en liten knapp (i telefonen) direkt under fotot och “Doing gentle with an edge”.

    I will listen! Great job getting all the way to the finished product of a podcast! Yeay!

      Yes, patting myself of the shoulder for a job well done!

    Wow vad coolt!! Jag vill också😍
    I början är det läskigt men håll med, ändå kul!
    Varmt lycka till! Det ska bli skoj att höra din röst.
