Episode 15 - Becky Handshew - A Simple Twist Of Fate
Feb 06, 2020 Season 2 Episode 2
Terry Smith/Becky Handshew

I’m delighted that Becky is another listener who liked the show so much she agreed to be a guest on it 

A proud Cornish girl from Hampshire farming and Geordie mining stock, life was never going to be dull for Becky and so it proved. 

After an idyllic childhood growing up in Bude, Cornwall, she departed UK shores in 1992 for a gap year in New Zealand followed by 5 years at Manchester University. 

In 1996, continuing to indulge her travel bug Becky took a solo trip to Seattle that was to change her life. On her first day 5000 miles away from home she met the man who would become her husband, hence the episode title. 

After two years of long distance dating in 1998 she got married and moved to Seattle where she still lives today with her music loving husband Kurtz and their 14-year daughter Maddy. 

Following a varied career since 2011 Becky has worked at KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio and as you will hear in the episode, gets to meet the odd celebrity. 

We talk about a wide spectrum of songs and artists during the episode and there were some Becky put in her notes that we didn't get to. All 49 songs are included in this Spotify Playlist
