Joy Sandwich

Jun 24, 2016

Hello, readers, writers, book nerds, and joy mongers! On Episode 57 of the Joy Sandwich podcast, Jessica and Non are so delighted to welcome Norm and Becky Leonard onto the show! Norm and Becky are lovely humans who have created their own book publishing company, Peachwood Publishing, the "family run craft bookery!" So cool. Plus, they have their first book out, the hilarious and sweet and truly adorable Barnaby the Firefly!

In this episode, we talk about the wonder of words and language, the importance of storytelling and reading to your children, the ins and outs of book publishing and creating your own publishing company (with kids as integral business partners!), parenthood, screenwriting (Norm does dark!) doulas (Becky, you rock!), creative independence, birth stories (Becky has a book coming out in the fall called The Nourished Pregnancy!), and, yes, we even talk extensively about placentas!
