So good!

I love listening to this podcast! Erica hosts some really amazing women, and it’s so interesting to listen to their stories! I strongly recommend.

Professional, Engaging, Consice

Always nice to listen to a new podcast that starts strong and doesn’t lose steam. Interviewer did a great job progressing the conversation in a “How I Built This” / NPR style of brand. It definitely has an informative lens built in, but it didn’t feel jargon heavy or obtuse. I was referred by a friend I had collaborated with previously (Sarah Minnix), but can imagine myself listening more in the future!
