We set up a booth at one of our events and asked you what yours were. We called it our podcast confessional. Today's episode is our response to some of your answers—what we might have said back, had we been on the other side of the divider.
Play the episode above, find it on iTunes, or listen to it using your favorite podcatcher. (Don't have one yet? We're fans of Stitcher.)
And tell us your "don't feel like cooking" meals, too—leave them in the comments, or better, record a voice memo and send it to us at [email protected] Maybe we'll do a sequel.
