Andreia Sodre Nichols ,

A great podcast about tech and life

This is a podcast I have to listen to as soon as new episodes come out.

These ladies are very relatable and down-to-earth professionals, with amazing work and life advice.

It’s really cool to have an inside view on how other people in tech work and live their lives.

I love listening to the episodes while doing some other activity, because it feels like having friends around chatting about super interesting topics.

Definitely recommend it!
