What seems like a million years ago now, I was a DJ. It was one of my first jobs when I was a teenager. Music is a passion I never left behind. I am routinely asked to make mixes for friends. Before I set out on the road To Lose the Madness, some readers as me what my playlist was for the book tour. So, here it is. Much of this list also followed me through the writing of To Lose the Madness: Field Notes on Trauma, Loss and Radical Authenticity and during the road trip across country to the high desert of New Mexico where the book is set. The full playlist is over 50+ songs long, so this is the abridged version. [Disclaimers: I am a fan of the minor chords. I am a child of the 80/90s.]
