The Best of Both Worlds podcast has reached quite a milestone: This week we published our 300th episode. It is fun to see how this show has grown.
This episode takes a very small look backward, at some episodes that people found particularly useful. Then we decided to look at life in general through the List of 100 Dreams lens. What have we done in the last 6 years or so from our Lists of 100 Dreams? What do we hope to do in the next 6 years?
One big goal: We’d like to keep the podcast going! To that end, if you enjoy the show, you could help us celebrate by doing one (or more than one?) of the following things.
First, you could join our Patreon community! We have great discussions about work/life topics, with a focus on being helpful that is hard to find elsewhere. We’ve recently had threads about how to job search while pregnant and whether to take a job where you might be the only remote employee.
Second, you could leave us a rating/review. If you listen on Apple podcasts on your phone, go to the show page, and then scroll down past recent episodes. You’ll see a section called “Ratings & Reviews.” In exactly 2 seconds you could tap 5 stars to rate us. If you’d like to review us, that would be amazing. You could just write two sentences. Think something like “I love this show because of [X, Y, Z]. I’d recommend it to anyone who [suggest a target audience].” Then submit!
Third, you could tell a friend, colleague, or neighbor! We’ve grown primarily through word of mouth so far. Someone is looking for advice on navigating a career and family and a friend mentions us. You could be that helpful friend.
Please give the episode a listen. Thanks for helping us get to 300. We’re excited about what’s to come.

What a fun surprise to get a call out on the way to work this morning!
@Gillian – absolutely – it was a great episode!
Congratulations on 300! I have been listening from the beginning and have learned so much. Thanks for all that you do!
@JGold – thanks for listening! So glad you’ve been enjoying it from the beginning.
Congrats on 300! It’s my favorite, can’t-miss podcast and always my #1 recommend after a friend told me about it four years ago.
@Megan – so glad you are enjoying it! Thanks for listening!
I really enjoy the podcast every week even though it isn’t as relevant to me as it would have been earlier in my life (when it didn’t exist) as my girls are 19 and 23 now. I had a look at the comments on Apple earlier and have to say I didn’t relate to the critical ones. They just don’t seem to get who this podcast is aimed at and how so much of the advice has nothing to do with money per se but is more about attitudes to it. Finally, how can you not want to spend a whole day at a spa? You are going to the wrong spa if so! I go regularly to a lovely day spa about 75 minutes away near the original Newark, England. I have been on my own, with my mum, with a university friend who lives the same time away in the other direction, with daughters together and individually. As well as offering a full range of treatments, which are extra to the cost of the day, but you don’t have to do any of them, there are two lovely pools, one inside and one out, hot tubs, full sauna/saunarium/hot and cold rooms etc, conservatory, gardens, amazing food at all times, slumber room, gym, yoga and other free classes (never done any of them though!). I could go on. The day from 9 to 6 absolutely flies by and it is wonderful. I have a special category in our budget for Eden Hall Day Spa and put money in it every month and from any tax rebate or similar! I am sure there must be places like this in the US.
@Katherine B – thanks for listening to us! As for critical comments, you can’t please everyone. We didn’t find much content aimed at professional women who could afford to make their lives easier in certain ways. All the money in the world won’t help you as much if you don’t know how to use it so we’re here to provide practical suggestions. No need for anyone to listen if they’re not into that 🙂
Congrats on 300 episodes! I’ve also listened to all of them I think.
I really like your love for Bach and wanna encourage you to go to the Bach Festival in Germany. I’ve been once and it was great (and I am not even such a big fan).
