S1 Ep.4: Where It Feels Like Home

October 3, 2017

When you live in DC, chances are most of your friends grew up somewhere else. And whether home is inside or outside the beltway, it seems like we're always missing somewhere. Our guests are from South Dakota, Colombia (by way of Virginia), Afghanistan (by way of New Mexico), and Washington, DC. Hear how homesickness affects each of them, despite their different backgrounds.

Garden Party Event Ticket Giveaway

July 6, 2017

Hello party people - we are doing a *TICKET GIVEAWAY*!

We're hosting a Garden Party with Time On The Hill on July 20th from 5:30-8:30 pm near Capitol Hill. Think: Hill staffers, cold Heineken, and fresh-cut cigars.

This event is invite-only, but we want you to be there! And we have five pairs of tickets to give away to you and a friend, but (of course) there's a catch. To help us with the next episode of DC Diary podcast, we want you to answer the question: What has caused you the most stress in your life and why?

You can send us a story, an anecdote, or a rambling list of bullet points. You can type it out, or record it on your iPhone. We'll pick our favorite submissions and send you two tickets to the event! And we'll record those stories in the sound booth at the party.

We are sooo looking forward to hearing from you! Send your submissions to stephanie@dcdiary.com.


DC Diary is Leaving Goat Rodeo

June 19, 2017

To our friends and followers: 

Shortly after I founded DC Diary, I joined the Goat Rodeo audio network to produce and shape the show. Together, we have grown DC Diary from just an idea to a compelling podcast and burgeoning social network. As the founder and host, I am proud of the work we have done in partnership with the network. 

At the end of June, DC Diary will be separating from Goat Rodeo. It is my hope that we will find another partner organization to support our production, but for now the show will be produced independently, including hosting recording happy hour events. We hope that you will continue to follow and engage with DC Diary - there are plenty of exciting things on the way.

We are excited to announce that our April Recording Happy Hour will be in partnership with Bossed Up and WIN (Women's Information Network). Here's a little bit about each organization. 

Bossed Up: A holistic career coaching organization empowering women to craft healthy, happy, sustainable careers – for life! We’re here to help you write your own come-up story with a squad of boss women supporting you every step of the way.

WIN (Women's Information Network): WIN informs, connects and empowers women by providing opportunities to network with other women, serve in a leadership position, gain valuable professional and political skills, and give back to our broader movement for political and professional equality.

We can't wait to capture the stories from the women running things around here.

S1 Ep.1: Inside the Beltway

March 21, 2017

Hear from a consultant, Hill staffer, and former White House advisor on what it's really like in Washington, DC today. First hand, from the capital, here’s what it’s all about.

What you’ll hear on this show is stories that are told in one on one interviews and candid conversations from the recording booth at our DC Diary happy hour events. You won’t catch these kinds of stories on your nightly news, your morning update, or your newsfeed. Because this show isn’t about the politics or policy - it’s about people.

Things are a'changin'. To some of us, it feels like a new beginning. To others of us, it feels like the beginning of the end. Come by our February Recording Happy Hour and share your stories of transitions, opportunities, uncertainty, and change. I think we can all agree that a night of good drinks and good company is exactly the catharsis we need. RSVP here
