The hardest part is a podcast about the hardest part of things. I talk to people about the hardest part of something they've experienced: like training for a half marathon, having cancer as a teenager or photographing naked men. And then I edit our conversation down into an episode short enough that you can listen to the whole thing over a single cup of coffee.

High interest but not too much time.
Everyday conversations with interesting people—like getting to know a new friend with every listen. Hazel is upbeat, warm, and asks just enough to reveal the personalities of her interviewees. Perfect for a quick break.
Cool little stories
I love the glimpse into other people’s worlds and problems I get with each episode. It really is the perfect “over a cup of coffee” podcast. The variety is ideal too—can’t wait to hear the next one.
I’ve really enjoyed listening to these interviews Hazel put together. The topics are both off-the-beaten-path and incredibly interesting, and the conversations manage to find touching depth, even in the brief cup-of-coffee (or wine!) format. Looking forward to season 2!
