How can you feel sorry and grateful at the same time? I'm sure the Germans have a word for it. Lauren Shippen joins Kyle to discuss this odd feeling along with relationships and vulnerabilities.

Two podcasts of hers that I'd like to highlight are:
The Bright Sessions - https://www.thebrightsessions.com/season-one - a science fiction podcast that follows a group of therapy patients. But these are not your typical patients - each has a unique supernatural ability. The show documents their struggles and discoveries as well as the motivations of their mysterious therapist, Dr. Bright.
Passenger List - https://passengerlist.org - A missing plane. A cabin full of suspects. A search for the truth.

What is Putting It Together?
This is a podcast about Stephen Sondheim's entire body of work show by show and song by song. Each week Kyle Marshall invites an expert to discuss a Sondheim song in-depth. Together they discover the humour, how the songs inform character, and any hidden meanings. Most importantly they try to understand the man behind the music, the Shakespeare of our time, as best they can.
