  • When Elsie decides stuff and doesn’t tell Jess, implements and then tells no one – awesome
  • A bit of insight into Elsie’s youth and why she does what she does
  • The reason this came about was because Elsie was feeling frustrated in how we were preparing and recording She Podcasts Episodes
  • And the conversation between banter vs ‘value’ comes into play
  • She Podcasts is different, it’s not your run of the mill podcast about podcasting
  • There are times that Elsie feels that we could do better at explaining the type of show that we have so that we could grow the show
