LONG EPISODE ALERT! We deliberately left in when Jess’s computer froze and she dropped out. We wanted to give you BTS of the reality of remote recording and getting a show out when we lose the audio! (Check the chapter markers to skip it if you want!) That al goes down about 48 minutes in, but in addition to that we cover our lives sheltering in place, the impact this time will have on our children, and the responsibility we have as podcasters with our titles and our content during the pandemic. During the last 20 minutes we have a business discussion about She Podcasts Live and what it would take for us to put on the conference, how we should move forward, what we should invest in and how the world will have changed by October.
