S10E01: One Year On

We kick off season ten with a Zoom get-together! Jenny and Kloe bring some drinks and invite people along to think about how the last 12-18 months have been. We talk about what we’ve been up to, how our workplaces have changed, the absolute state of the job market, supply issues, the ‘planning ballet,’ and what we’re proud of. Many thanks to Mandy Garratt, Kendall Gay, Kaitlin Wieseman, Ellie Sweetnam, Caitlin Jenkins, Martha Jones, Raene Poisson, Odelia Cheung, Atticus Berry, Gwen Thomas, Jane Henderson, and Angélica Isa for joining the conversation!
