Our first husband & wife team on You Seem Interesting. Last week, Michael Slaby, this week, Lydia Slaby. While the pair was living in Chicago, Michael was doing transformative work on the Obama Campaigns & Lydia was a corporate attorney working a zillion hours. Then she received a cancer diagnosis. Since then, they have each written a book, moved to the middle of nowhere NY, and Lydia is running for public office. Her book, Wait, It Gets Worse, is an extremely personal look at dealing with horrid circumstances and learning to roll with previously unthinkable reality. We discussed her small town re-election campaign, lessons from big politics that can be used in a town of 10s of people, and making fun of her husband as he goes through the book promotion process.
