In honor of Int’l Women’s Day, we’re releasing a double live podcast. Each segment is chock full of inspiring women in science, tech, and business. Every guest brought a unique story about passion for science and important insights about overcoming obstacles on the way to realizing that passion.
We recorded this double episode live at a beer release party and fundraiser for girls in STEM (Sci/tech/eng/math) programs. The party was hosted by Granite Mountain Brewing, a woman owned business.
Our contribution to the party was inviting five different STEM women (and three more showed up)! Two women we invited acted as guest hosts asking questions and guiding the flow. We recorded over two hours of stories, laughter, camaraderie, connection and we’re bringing it to you in two parts so you can pace yourselves.
