Jess if off and yet we go on! Liz Covart from Ben Franklin’s World was kind enough to join Elsie for an incredibly thought provoking conversation about the history of radio and how that affects (or doesn’t) what we are building in podcasting. We also talk about other fun things which include Kim Kardashian discovering podcasts, Elsie’s goats being back home and what’s so special about our new She Podcasts Super Squad!
