About this Episode

I'm a selfish knitter. A lot of people, especially in the tech industry, are all about side hustles. I'm not about that life. ... Everyone's always like, "Why don't you sell your knits? Why don't you do this? Why don't you - " and I'm like, "Man, I had two jobs for like five years . I don't want another job, and I don't want something that I enjoy to become another job.

Hosts Kelly Corey and Karin Thorne chat with Lauren Adam about her non-traditional journey into tech, the importance of keeping hobbies separate from side hustles, and her experience creating the What a Woman podcast. Lauren shares her experience as part of Start Fast Code. We also discuss '90s toys, the Star Wars franchise, and tabletop roleplaying games.
