#47 - 2021 Reflections, Creativity, and More, with Mayuko Inoue
The end of 2021 is almost here, and it’s time to wrap up the second season of The Work Item. And what better way to do that than to invite a good friend on the show to talk about their journey through the past 12 months? In this episode, I am chatting with Mayuko Inoue about all things 2021, the best choices in comfort foods, McDonalds french fries, thoughts on the content creator career path, and more. We wanted to make this episode very informal, yet informative. To borrow Mayuko’s intro to her own podcast, Muko’s Corner (which you should subscribe to) - sit down, get cozy, grab a cup of tea, and enjoy the show!

#46 - From Journalism to Developer Engagement, with Christina Warren
The myth of the superhero programmer - we often hear about it, but it’s rarely the reality. Being a superhero on a team takes more than just technical chops, and that’s one of the topics that I chat about today with Senior Developer Advocate at Microsoft - Christina Warren. You might’ve seen Christina before on This Week on Channel 9, or even back in the day - at Gizmodo and Mashable. This episode ended up being less of a career chat and more of a friendly exchange about the latest happenings and what we can learn from them. Yes, we even talk a bit about the re-released Grand Theft Auto: The Definitive Edition.

#45 - Startups, Growth, and A Quest to Build People-focused Companies, with Jennifer Kim
The decision to join a startup or a big company is not an easy one, as one has to consider many factors that go beyond just the financial side of things. In this episode, I talk to Jennifer Kim, a seasoned startup advisor with a lot of experience dealing with these kinds of decisions and more. Jennifer also specializes in the people part of the startup equation - arguably, one of the hardest ones. We chat about the current challenges startups encounter in this space, why it’s important to build a diverse workforce, and what one individual can do to be a changemaker in their company’s culture.
