Revealing insights about Anaïs Nin!
What I love most about this podcast is that even those of us very familiar with her work and life can still learn from listening. As a busy woman I so appreciate that these podcasts are short but super potent.
This is a wonderful podcast for both Nin lovers and aspiring Nin lovers. Even if you’ve read all her work, there seems to always be another dimension to uncover about this iconic woman. Great dialogue between Anain Bjorkquist who poses questions and Paul Herron who answers in a way that Nin would about her life’s passions and philosophies. A great way to keep the connection with Nin alive. The words linger long after the podcast is over… Highly recommended!
Passionate and Enlightening
I love the passion that Paul Herron brings to this podcast along with such powerful knowledge of Nin’s work. As an ardent fan of Anais Nin — as I know so many of us are — I really appreciate these episodes. What’s more, if you are new to Nin and her work, you’ll find this an inspiring springboard into a beautiful world. Most enjoyable!
