In this episode, we help a listener navigate the decision to interview someone you've worked with who previously had some challenges.
Listen. I'm gonna need y'all to handle your business, get your vaccine, and get your shit together. I need this whole pandemic thing under control by September so I can go to Riot Fest, you hear? Tighten up! #xp
Me: "Hey, I've named my island...it's JERmany!"
Jordan: "Really? Not Douche-land?"
If there's anything that I've learned about myself from movies of the 80s and 90s, it's that I'm a sucker for an impassioned speech. I suspect I'm especially susceptible because I'm so envious of the ability to rouse enthusiasm in that way--it mystifies me. #xp
I've gone back and re-read this repeatedly since I first saw it. I'm deeply saddened that that was her experience, and it's a great reminder for me how much of a responsibility I bear to be vigilant as to the environment team members here work in. #xp https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/07/opinion/google-job-harassment.html

I'm unbelievably excited...a tattoo artist that I've been following for a long time hoping to get on their books has an opening and I've booked it!! I've been lucky to get some really great artists to mark me up <3 #xp
The "Shopping Cart Theory" as a test of your self-governance readiness got a lot of mileage over the last year (https://medium.com/be-unique/the-curious-case-of-the-shopping-cart-theory-802909d93cff) but a much more visible barometer came this year: the simple mask.
