MaeveLayla ,

Where has this been all my life??

I love this podcast! I found it to be engaging and relevant in today’s tech scene. Jamie is clever and clear about her direction with questions and where the topics go. I normally get too bored with podcasts because of my ADD brain, but I was able to focus on the entire thing. It also helps that Jamie is funny as hell, and I caught myself busting up laughing plenty of times! A fresh voice in the podcast scene that I truly love. Hurry up and make more!

My new best podcast friend

I absolutely adore this podcast... I’ve listened to it twice already.

Not only is the information useful, relevant and interesting. The presenter (Jamie Hardin) feels like a best friend who shares wisdom and advice in a friendly and non patronizing manner.

Feels like someone is in my “Tech Bitch” corner.

Highly recommended
