WINNETKA – My New Podcast!


Hi everyone! It’s been a while since my last newsletter…That’s because I’ve been working on a BIG project…

My new podcast, WINNETKA, is a childhood memoir in ten episodes. It’s produced and narrated by me, and features the voices of its characters, who are my five siblings and my mother. While you (anxiously) wait for the  episodes to launch Feb. 4, 2019 you can hear weekly sample stories. They’re short, 2-4 minutes. This newsletter includes three of them, plus a trailer, but they are also posted on my other website ( or wherever you listen to podcasts.

I encourage you to subscribe so you won’t miss a thing! You can do that  at Apple Podcasts  or Stitcher or wherever you find your podcasts. You can also go to the website ( to subscribe easily at the various platforms that are hosting the show.

Here’s the trailer for WINNETKA. Thanks for listening!

    Hi, Jessica: I have followed you since I was in fifth grade at NSCDS and you were a Sunspot, which enchanted and amazed me. I am eager to hear your podcast about Winnetka …!

    I saw this website in the NSCDS Acorn. I recall you lived in Greenwich, CT (as we did) after leaving Winnetka in 1961. It was a long time ago.

      Hi Harris, it’s great to hear from you! Yes, there’s a whole piece in Episode 8 about moving to Greenwich in 1967–it didn’t go well!
      My family only stayed a year, then went to NYC.
      thanks for writing, I remember you well and fondly.

    Hello Jessica,
    I just got started with the podcast RE: 60093.
    Very good stuff and good drama. I like hearing the voices of your family in particular. Setting the stage with the happenings at your father’s funeral was a good start. Thanks.

    Are you the one that sang old souls for the phantom of the paridise

    This is great, Jessica. I just clicked on the clothing segment, and you nailed it! I was in Diana’s class. Congratulations on your project. I look forward to
    hearing all of it.
