Host C. J. Robinson interviews guest Peggy Sweeney-McDonald for a heartfelt conversation about love and regret, pain and compassion, and why there is beauty even in the most tragic of circumstances. And on a lighter note, they talk about why the podcasting community is so completely awesome.
Join us on the podcast today as we talk with Peggy Sweeney-McDonald, who hosts Life in the A-Zone, a podcast about her journey back home to help her mom through Alzheimer's. We also learn about the first jukebox, Life magazine, and 10 million cell phones.
I met my guest today after joining a group of podcasters recently. Peggy Sweeney-McDonald is an actress, producer, and author of a book called Meanwhile, Back at Café Du Monde…Life Stories about Food. Peggy is also the host of a podcast called Life in the A-Zone in which she shares her story of moving back to Baton Rouge Louisiana after 36 years when her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. My conversation with Peggy was filled with emotion, sincerity, and skillful storytelling. As I listened to her story I couldn’t help but think about the story behind the story. I became so curious of Peggy’s experience of telling her story, how she became skilled at storytelling, and how her story changed her in the telling. So I reached out to her and we had a conversation that was as rich as the story itself. Peggy is a passionate storyteller who skillfully weaves pauses, voice fluctuations, emotion, and humor to share a story that reveals a long family history of love, laughter, loss, and life in the A-Zone. - Greg Kovacs
