Award-winning author Laurel McHargue, a 1983 graduate of The United States Military Academy at West Point, was raised in Braintree, MA, but found her way to the (literally) breathtaking elevation of Leadville, CO, where she lives, writes, and laughs with her husband and Ranger, the German Shepherd.

I have so enjoyed listening to the fun and quirky tale telling of a podcaster and author. Very funny stories and a wonderful listening experience. Love the intro music and introductions of what is coming up. I look forward to hearing more from Laurel.
Back to my story
What a fun way to end the day with my 10 year old, listening to your second podcast, on hair. We smiled, laughed, looked at each other quizzically and then laughed some more. We were also really impressed with your big word, it was well used...now, back to my story.
So you want to be a human? Listen to this.
Laurel’s stories are relatable, funny, and exceedingly outlandish. You will laugh so hard you have to press pause. She uses humor to examine silliness and seriousness all around her.
