Helloo...This is Stephanie...Talk, Tales, and Trivia!
I am so proud to announce that my new book, Southpaw - A Tale About A Girl's Imagination is coming out soon.
This book has been a long time in the works and as I get closer to the launch date I am getting more excited and a little scared, too.
Let me tell you that this will be the 2nd generation of Southpaw - A Tale About A Girl's Imagination. And a lot has happened to make my book exactly the way I want it to be (that's why this is...
Happy Valentine's Day From Me...Stephanie!
In this here episode I talk Valentine's Day in all its glory. And I get that it may not be a great day for everybody but we will get through it even if we feel a bit "out of the loop" as the saying goes.
Take comfort in knowing that you are not alone and there are so many people that feel the same way you do about this "Hallmark Holiday".
I have suggestions that I will be implementing myself on this day of love and if you don't have a special...

On this episode we talk about Groundhog Day and all the glorious history behind this holiday of sorts. Take note though, to make groundhog a singular word doesn't seem very fair to all of the groundhogs that have participated in Groundhog Day throughout the years.
Join me as I explore this most quirky of all the days we celebrate as a country. And, perhaps, you may want to plan a trip to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to meet "Punxsutawney...
Helloo. This is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia
Once again I talk about our resolutions and the one biggest resolution that we either have right now, have had in the past or know we will have as a future resolution.
I have certainly been captive to this resolution for most of my life and in so doing I have really led a less than happy and exciting life.
That is up until recently.
Yes. I've discovered, if you let your negative self talk, your thoughts, and feelings take charge you...
Happy New Year! Woot-Woot!
This is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia...
In this episode I talk about new year's resolutions. Have you made yours yet?
After long contemplation I made a short list of my own. I then thought of a few more that I could benefit from. And maybe you can too!
Don't despair if you haven't made a list just yet. You still have a little over eleven months. Why are you so darn hard on yourself? Hmmm...
Without further ado..
Run into the kitchen and make yourself...
Helloo...this is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia.
Yes...it's almost here; really only days away but we still have a little time to do some small (or big) Christmas shopping.
In this episode we talk about Christmas trees and some pretty good Christmas tree trivia...if you're into that kind of thing... ;-)
Then at the end I tell you what's been going on with me in the past couple of months...some bad and uncomfortable situations that, at first, made Christmas...
Helloo...this is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia...
Merry, Merry Christmas!
So it's begun. All the Christmas shopping. Driving to out of the way stores to buy that one glorious gift for that special someone.
Well, this week I free wheel it with no script or bullet points but just speak from the heart about this all American week that begins with Thanksgiving.
It used to be Black Friday was the big day after Thanksgiving but no more. Yep. The powers that be can't stop adding days to...
Helloo...this is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia.
And I LOVE Christmas! :-)
Yep. It's true! In this episode Stephanie talks, and talks, and talks about her love of the Christmas season by highlighting the Hallmark company that includes the two Hallmark cable channels.
These are two very important channel's to Stephanie this season. Why? Because of the Hallmark Original Christmas Movies that play all season long.
Yes. For Stephanie...it feels so right! So it can't be wrong!

In this episode Stephanie details her big move from a lackluster house in a town to a wonderful apartment in a nearby city. She finds it fun, exciting and, as one of her tales tells, a little embarrassing, too! Yikes!
After having all the beautiful people that have come to help Stephanie...

Helloo...This is Stephanie...Talk, Tales and Trivia...
In this episode we're having fun giving you a little overview of what punk rock really is.
I know a little bit about punk rock because it was a part of who I was when I was growing up. Yes. I loved the free spirited dress and was curious about the punk lifestyle. I admit I dabbled!
What is it? Where did it begin? And where did the punk rockers hang out? And what...

In this episode Stephanie talks about her past month and what she did to get ready for Podcast Movement 17. It was pretty exciting and a little terrifying, too. Well, that's an understatement.
It was very terrifying because she was making a "Ted Talk Type" tale that she would be doing on stage the day before the official opening of Podcast Movement 17.
Stephanie retells the tale she gave about her passion for podcasting using her first year in...
This month we are celebrating our 1st year in podcasting.
This is only a quick heads up to our listeners that we are taking a wee bit of a Summer break. During this time Stephanie is preparing for Podcast Movement 17, which has included buying new luggage...an unusually difficult thing to do for some reason.
But...not to despair, dear listeners. Talk, Tales and Trivia will be back at the end of August.
We would love to hear how you spent your last bit of summer. You can...
In this episode Stephanie talks about something no woman really likes to talk about. That's right. "Swimsuit Season". It's even difficult for Stephanie to think about it this summer for more than 5 minutes without locking herself in the bathroom.
Plus...it's much better inside her 72 degree home...not just better...it's SO much better. Forget the beach. Forget sweating. There's no need for any of these things! The End!

In this episode, Stephanie talks about the original 1968 movie, The Planet of the Apes. Her favorite of them all. She talks about this wonderful beginning of the The Planet of the Apes franchise because there is so much history behind it. We all can learn so much by watching this one.
And then there's the all star cast and clearly dystopian theme...seriously...can it get any better than that? No. It can't.
And, enjoy some excellent trivia as you listen to this episode and notice the...
In this episode Stephanie really shows her true love of Sweden by highlighting some of the books and movies from Sweden.
These are some special gems for sure. You don't want to miss reading these books and then watching the accompanying movies.
This is quite a list! Nej?
Perhaps grab a hot beverage on a rainy night, snuggle up with a loved one, maybe your cat or dog, and get down to some serious reading or watching!
There will be a quiz on all of these next week! Enjoy!
Let The Right...
Well here we are again! Stephanie is talking true crime in this episode and she loves it.
There is just so much true crime everything in American pop culture. Something for everyone.
Stephanie explores it all plus a small love of something (or someone) that is in the horror genre. Hmmm...we're not going to tell you. You're going to have to listen to the episode.
Also, Stephanie has some very exciting news that she wants to share with you all at the very end of this episode. No skipping...
In this episode Stephanie talks about the passing of her beautiful dog, Norton. She misses him so much. This is a very short episode because it is fresh in her mind and it just happened this past Saturday morning.
We will have a new episode out next week but please remember that
we love you and we appreciate you always.

In this episode Stephanie discovers the world of bacon! Seriously. She loves her bacon. Mounds and mounds of bacon. For Stephanie, it can't get much better than having loads of bacon on her plate.
Stephanie talks about her special love for this all-time very favorite meat that most American's love just as much as her.
We also did some research discovering a few online stores that sell all the special bacon delicacies just in case family and friends don't know what to get Stephanie for...
In this episode Stephanie talks about the "Dystopian Everything" craze that is currently in American pop culture. There is a lot to read, watch and listen to.
Here's the thing. Stephanie loves dystopian everything but is it a good thing? She ponders this and weighs in on this topic of the week. Of course it's a good thing. Perhaps in small doses for the faint of heart.
Is it more depressing than it is good? Stephanie thinks if you take it nice and slow and don't overindulge you'll be...
