About this episode
This is the first episode in the introductory series of The Notable Woman podcast, and I couldn’t be happier to introduce creativity powerhouse Tia Shearer Bassett. Tia acts, writes, directs, and creates all while being Mom to a 3-year-old and supporting the creative work of her theatre freelancing husband, just as he supports her. This creative family leads their artistic life in Washington D.C., and I couldn’t be happier to start off the podcast with this interview. We talk about poetry, theatre, creation, great books, as well as keeping creativity alive, even after kids. Tia’s insights into stress have already been helping me, and I’m also “allowing” for myself a lot more in my own life. Enjoy this great conversation!
