How we became co-hosts

We met through old-school blogging, and have been conference roommates many times over the years. We feel confident that if we can share a toilet, we can also share an amazing podcast.

Until we’re allowed to be in the same room in a post-Covid world, we’re settling for old photos of us where we have lovingly, and sloppily cropped out our dear friends.
