Welcome to pod tales!

I’m Miriam Gascoigne, mama of three, a teacher for over a decade and a mama for eight.  I have always loved a good story, who doesn’t?!  In our increasingly insular world, hearing and reading the stories of brave, smart, funny and tenacious women gives me inspiration, liberation, a sense of kinship and sometimes a much needed belly laugh.  

Pod tales celebrates the rich tapestry of our personal stories.  Here you’ll find stories from my own pod as well as the your story series.  This series of stories reveals our challenges, the diversity of our pods and our unique voices.

Please drop me a line if you’d love to share one of your stories.
