Managing a Crisis with Liya Dashkina
After taking a brief break from hosting this podcast, I've decided to restart the show to feature a few stories of how people around the world are managing their professional lives amid the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, which has created tremendous upheaval and uncertainty not only in people's lives but also their careers.
