I'm Caroline! Over the years, I've started a bunch of creative projects I've failed to finish.
So I wanted to talk to creative people - writers, filmmakers, comedians, photographers, musicians, and more - about how they work, and what they do when things get tough - learn the secrets of finishing!
From Dublin, Ireland - it's Operation: Project!
This ep of Operation: Project is my first solo podcast - I'm slightly embarrassed as I hit "Publish", but I'm taking that as a good sign. So I’ve just been through a breakup with my long-term partner, about 7 weeks ago now. It’s no-ones fault, just differences, and we’re being kind and compassionate to each other. Grief and the pressures of lockdown brought sharply to the forefront some problems that were always there but we pushed to the side in favour of what worked great in our relationship. This podcast isn’t really about the relationship, or the reasons for the breakup, but about what I’m doing for myself to help ensure I come out the other side, better than ever. I’ve learned A HUGE AMOUNT the last 6 weeks, and I hope some of it could be helpful for anyone going through something similar, especially during this poxy lockdown time. So the guest is me and the project is me, as I share with you my 13 Steps to Breaking Up without Cracking Up! If you find it useful, leave a review, reach out, or whatever you're having yourself.
Emily O'Callaghan - comedy promoter, event organiser, journalist, photographer - constantly gets creative things done, and Caroline wants to know how. They talk about getting over your fear of trying, why it's important to have a few failures behind you, and how to pack out the first night of your new comedy club!
