In episode 40, one of my dreams comes true--I get to have a conversation with a producer for the podcast that made me fall in love with podcasts, On Being with Krista Tippett. Lily Percy is one of the founding members who brought On Being to independence in 2013; she's also the host of the delightful podcast This Movie Changed Me, and formerly worked for StoryCorps and NPR's All Things Considered.
In today's episode, Lily and I talk about what she's learned from her years of loving movies and listening in on conversations with incredible people reflecting on what it means to be human.
We talk about some of the movies Lily loves, how romantic movies always end at the beginning, and our sensitivity when it comes to watching films that are violent or disturbing. We also talk about the wisdom Lily has gleaned from both younger and older generations, from unfixed ideas about identity, to realizing some of the wisest people also face deep struggles throughout their lives.
