Pigeons, pigeons, PIGEONS! Welcome to 2021! Hopefully, the wackiness of this episode will be enough to distract you from current events. Mother Pigeon is a NYC performance artist who can often be found at Union Square feeding live pigeons and selling felt ones. She has been called “a beautiful witch”, to which I wholeheartedly agree. Mother Pigeon may not be a granny per se, but she definitely radiates strong granny energy, and that’s enough for me (plus it’s my podcast and I do what I want 😊). We talk about the pros and cons of being a performance artist in New York City, how crafting impacts her lifestyle, Nikola Tesla and his love for pigeons, Tina’s secret seed mix (made by the Amish), illegal pigeon netting, and her recently “viral” pandemic art piece which included masked rats with a sign saying “Eww Run! Humans are spreading disease!”. Tina and her husband also shared one of their puppet shows (which you can watch on my Instagram!) and music from their upcoming album, which I absolutely loved and can’t get out of my head. Thanks again to Mother Pigeon for inviting me into her studio for this (socially distanced) interview, its was very… coo-l.

In this tumultuous holiday season, who better to interview than my own grandma! This episode sort of serves as a part two to episode 2 where I interviewed my grandpa, so you might want to listen to that first. Oma Marjolaine was born in a truck in the Netherlands during WWII. She hitchhiked her way to the South of France at 18 and never turned back! When she joined a hippie commune she had to learn how to grow her own vegetables, mill grain, raise sheep, tan hides, make cheese, spin yarn, and everything in between. She even had to send telegrams back in the day when she didn’t have a phone on her farm. Basically, she was homesteading before it was cool. We talk about her travels around the world, her friendship with the late Diana Ross, and visiting America for the first time. Pick the coziest bale of hay in the barn and gather round for this joyous episode of SYGNT that might just convince you to go live on a farm in the mountains... which honestly doesn’t sound half bad right now.

At 62 years old Lynette decided to become a YouTube sensation. When you watch her cooking channel you can smell the chili through the screen and you feel just like you are sitting at granny’s house at thanksgiving. Lynn is everyone’s grandma, her passion for cooking and good food is infectious! She gives her top cooking tips, where she learned it all, and what she has in store for the holidays. This episode is all about family, love, and delicious food. Lynette survived a stroke and found the meaning for her life at 58. If that doesn’t inspire you, I don’t know what will! We laugh we cry and we get real hungry in this cozy episode of SYGNT. This month’s episode is a special collaboration with Lynn’s Kitchen on YouTube. You can find the full, unedited, episode on her channel (terrible lighting and all) as well as on the Stories your granny never told YouTube channel. Don’t forget to like and subscribe!

Lois is 70 but has been in the health care industry since she was 12 years old! She first volunteered as a kid, then went to nursing school despite her severe dyslexia, and went on to became top of her field. At 50 years old she discovered her true passion, which is teaching people how to get rid of shame and guilt. We go through how tap-dancing helped her conquer Irlen syndrome (thanks Fred Astaire), paying 25 cents for a black and white movie, her near-death experience, and how now, she decided to go on tour and make a movie at 70 years old. Lois will put you in a good mood, that’s a guarantee. Cozy up to the fire with a cup of tea and have a listen to the stories your granny never told.
