Bonus: Postcard Moments . . . with Gigi Johnson

November 17, 2022

We are in post-production on new episodes, so our host, Gigi Johnson, shared a story about “Postcards” and Postcard Moments that has come up in prior episodes and in many recent conversations. She shares how a single postcard created a pivot that changed her direction when a TA offered the suggestion that she apply for USC Film School after a single class. She challenges us to explore “postcards” in our lives — both given and offered. She also suggests that postcards are all over past episodes, which we’ll call out with additional content in the future.
