Parenting + Poetry ft. Maggie Smith

Simple Families

I've always been intimidated by poetry. However, Maggie Smith has changed that. Not only have I found myself enjoying poetry, but I've also found it to be a way to get off auto-pilot and center myself on the hard days. Maggie is on the show today to share some of her poems on parenting, loss and life. Not only does Maggie write beautifully, but her work is so relatable and thought-provoking I find that each poem brings me a mini-mindfulness break.Links from this Episode Maggie's Website Maggie's Books and Poetry Maggie on Instagram Poem: Small Shoes - Moving Poems SPONSORS Cozy Earth – Get 35% off on Oprah's Favorite sheets and site wide using the code SIMPLE at CozyEarth.com.

Ep. 63 - Maggie Smith (feat. Dan Craig)

Munsons at the Movies

Welcome to the Munsons at the Movies podcast. Each episode we delve into the filmography and impact of a randomly selected actor.  In this episode, we explore the career of Maggie Smith. Best known for her roles as Violet Crawley in Downton Abbey, Professor McGonagall in the Harry Potter franchise, and Miss Jean Brodie (1969), we're going all the way back to the 1950's with our reviews in this episode. Joined for the fifth time by guest Munson, Dan Craig, we discuss her numerous Oscar nominated roles, the buddy action flick we all wished we could see with Maggie & Whoopi Goldberg, we're back in our bag talking gratuitous male nudity in films, and we debate her evolution as a performer over nine different decades. As James says, "This woman was born when Hitler was alive--she's seen some shit." Where does Dame Maggie Smith rank on the Munson Meter? Listen to find out.

Maggie Smith on Despair, Hope, Divorce, and Poetry

Depresh Mode with John Moe

Right now, in our society, there is so much to be anxious about. There are many factors that could lead one to feel depressed and defeated. If one already has a tendency toward anxiety and depression, that path can be even shorter. But as a member of that society, one must look for hope anyway. It’s that dynamic relationship between despair and hope that led us to reach out to Maggie Smith. The American poet Maggie Smith, not the British actor Maggie Smith.Maggie is the author of several volumes of poetry and her work has appeared in the New Yorker, the Paris Review, the New York Times, and the Best American Poetry anthology. She became very well known in 2016 when her poem “Good Bones”, about the bleakness of the present and the possibility of a better future, became a viral hit.In this interview, she talks about her anxious childhood, the pessimism people knew her for as an adult, a divorce that changed her significantly, and how to unleash your inner weirdness for the benefit of yourself and your writing.For books, events, and more poems, visit Maggie's website at www.MaggieSmithPoet.com.
