I connected with you both via Instagram and LinkedIn . I love to grow and watch my self get successful in a world full of tax loopholes that we need help learning about. Again thank you for this podcast for small growing businesses like mine

What century are we in?

I’m a female lawyer (we make up ~40% of the profession in the US by the way) interested in drone laws so I flipped on episode 205. Almost immediately one of the hosts said “Some of you ladies out there may be like ‘agh this is a hobby this is a guy’s thing’…. Did you want a drone at your wedding? What’s up with that? Do you want drone footage there? At a party or event? You may be closer connected to a drone than you realize”
Such a condescending and alienating way to start an episode. And this was their way of explaining that drone law is a “non-sexist” topic…. Since this is an older episode, I’m hoping they don’t speak to their female audience this way anymore but I’m not willing to find out.
