One Year Anniversary! (Plus our thoughts on Penelope Trunk): The Home Hour, Episode 116

Today on the Home Hour, we’re celebrating one year of podcasting! WooHoo!

Join hosts Kirsten and Graham as we take a look back at all we’ve learned in a year and all the ways The Home Hour has inspired us to live better! From the guests that surprised us, to the products we’ve tried, to the changes we’ve made in our own homes, we talk about all the good, all the bad, and even the hate mail that can come out of one year.

Plus, after many requests from listeners, we share our thoughts on our most talked about interview to date: Penelope Trunk!

  1. Congratulations or happy anniversary from Germany! I love your podcast and am every episode – listening to them while doing housework or riding my bike to work. Looking forward to more in your second year! I hope you have as much fun recording as I have listening.

  2. I loved loved loved this episode as you talked about your last year. I kept thinking “oh, yes…that WAS a good episode, I’ll go listen to that one again….and that one again…and that one again.” *smile* That’s the thing that balanced out the news that you are going to an every-other-week schedule. I always listen to your podcast as soon as I spot there’s a new episode. Thanks for such great shows! I would LOVE Clean Mama coming back for another episode. Also the Economides on Grocery Shopping!! One other fun guest might be Cass from Clutterbug. I love her podcasts as well & it seems you all might have a grand interview together 🙂

    • Monique!! You have given us the biggest biggest smile… Thank you for such a kind and thoughtful comment. We’ll work on getting some of your favorites lined up for a more detailed discussion. I think you’re spot on about the grocery shopping!
