    A user interview. Except that user is a NYT reporter.

    Holly Epstein Ojalvo is a long time media leader, writing and editing for places like USA Today, Quartz, and the New York Times. Unfortunately, she was let go in May, making Holly one of Riveter's potential users. She became an even better user to interview when she wrote her popular NYT Article, How To Manage the Emotional Impact of Getting Laid Off. Enjoy this as a user interview, a pleasant conversation, or a set of advice about how to thrive in unemployment. @heojhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/hollyepsteinojalvo/https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/21/smarter-living/coronavirus-laid-off-career-advice.html

Really valuable content

Adriel is an awesome host and keeps getting better. The content is really valuable and interesting on a topic that seems to have lots of competition - this podcast manages to stand out as unique by looking at real questions around a unique stage of a company’s sales where there aren’t quite the adequate resources or precedent i.e. a real and authentic stage almost every company faces.
