Never miss it

Thank you! I’m still catching up on this season. I fear having big FAANGs in my neck in the night (vampire tech), and started following these journalists on WNYC 5 years ago. Long live life insight!

I was a skeptic about blockchain from a woman’s, personal investor’s, and MBA’s perspective. Since the podcaster journalists have (almost) moved on from Civil and blockchain, I’ve struggled with work/career and family while following these podcasts. While I never attempted the 42 steps in Blockchain for Civil, my time listening here is not wasted.

Get to the point

A lot of patting themselves on the back for quitting their jobs and starting a business. Welcome to what the rest of us female business owners do every day without making a big deal about it. And then talking. About how amazing they are episode after episode after episode. It’s semi-unlistenable. Get ready to fast forward to get to any content.

A Real Look at Startups and Life

I really enjoy this podcast even though I have no background or real interest in technology. Manoush and Jenn do a great job at teaching you why you should be concerned, involved or interested in different tech issues. They also are just so human and I love when they share about that aspect as well- they make me want to start a project with my BFF.
