If You Like This Blog, You’ll Love this Podcast

I had a great time talking with Phillip Kim & Valerie Garcia for their podcast Love Set Match about my quest to play tennis on every public court in LA. I am especially struck by how often and heartily we used words such as joy and exhilaration.

Other topics & themes include:

  • being an English major;
  • racquet-throwing;
  • classic rock drumming;
  • the state of SoCal tennis (spoiler alert: it’s great!);
  • honoring the gift of physical ability; and
  • being here for Los Angeles when she needs us.
