What podcasts should I listen to?” is a question I get every other day. There is a podcast just about everything. So I always answer back something along the lines of: tell me what you are interested in, and I'll find the podcast for you. So I decided to start this blog series, which is essentially podcas...

The title of this blog post comes from one of my favorite musicals of all time: Hamilton. Just recently, Marilyn and I went to London and watched the play about America’s forgotten founding father.

In the US women are paid 20% less than men, and women from minorities even less. There is not a single profession where women earn more than men. This is true regardless of age or seniority.

While recording our podcast interviews, as the producer, I always have my headphones on to make sure that the sound quality stays neat and clear. So during Marilyn's conversation with SPS Affinity co-founder Peggy Li, I was listening through my headset, and everything was going swimmingly well - until...

When you Google the word Moxie, the definition that comes up goes a little like this: force of character, determination and nerve. Those three terms pretty much sum up who Jessica Robinson is.
