We went into it, right off the bat.

Jess shares with us the details of her daughter Emily’s passing and how all of us at She Podcasts HQ dealt with the whole thing.

If you’ve ever wondered what the protocol is or what the best social practices are for when someone in your circle experiences a loss, this is the show to listen to. We also get very transparent about what happens to a business, a podcast and other stuff when a loss this big happens.

TL;DR it’s complicated.
