Host Phebe Beiser welcomes Toni Lackner to The Podcast Edition of Women Writing for a Change. Listeners first heard Toni on the Love Podcast, with her musings on James Dean. In this episode, Toni shares on a wide variety of topics, using poetry, essay, satire and short story.
Toni finds inspiration in the women in her life who have been nurturers – Aunt Fran’s ability to fix anything, Helen at 96, and Eleanor Roosevelt’s courage.
But her most poignant moment comes as she discovers, “I know someone’s waiting to hear my words.”
