The End of the Season

As fall comes to a close and winter is almost upon us, season one of borrowed solace: the podcast is coming to an end. We are excited to come back in the new year with more guests, more fun topics, and more of what we are all about—community. Thank you so much for listening and being apart of our venture into the realm of podcasting. See you next year!

Episode 10: A Block of Lard

This episode of the podcast I am joined by Amber and a special guest who was published in borrowed solace issue 1.2. Tune in to hear Eowyn Randall read her story, “A Block of Lard,” on this episode of the podcast!

Episode 9: Resources

On episode nine of borrowed solace: the podcast, the other editors and I discussed how the journal has morphed into what it is today, and all the growing pains that came along with the may changes that have taken place over the last few years.

Unlike our usual resources posts, we don’t have much in the way of information and external links to share, but we would still love to hear from you! Imagine we’re all sorting through Halloween candy, and remarking on how crazy it is that it’s already November, when the conversation turns to this week’s podcast. Let us know what you think and comment below!
