I’m an indoorsy girl at heart. 🌲
In early March, we rented an absolutely adorable cabin in upstate New York for an extra long weekend of wine, cooking, sunsets, and mountain adventure. Doesn’t sound like me, you say? You’re gosh darn right. But the key feature of this cabin was that one wall was made entirely of plate glass, so I could feel as though I was outside without actually having to be outside. It was miraculous.
I recorded my first guest spot on a podcast in March as well. The fine gentlemen at the No Hope Podcast sat down with me and geeked out over musical theater, Kathleen Turner, Provincetown, and my mother for nearly two hours. Most of that conversation was preserved in the final cut, and if you have nothing else to do on a long drive, I'd love if you gave it a listen. (Explicit content warnings: Language, spoilers about musicals, aforementioned mother tales.)
Just this week, I learned I was nominated, along with some colleagues from MIT Technology Review, for two Webby Awards. 🏆
Dubbed “the internet's highest honor” by The New York Times, this is kind of a big deal. My work with our podcasting and social teams has been some of my favorite work I have done at Tech Review. I’m super humbled and very excited just to be nominated (alongside heavyweights like CNN and The Washington Post, no less).
The Webby Awards nominees are chosen by a panel of professionals in each industry featured, but the winners are chosen by popular vote. If you feel so inclined, please give us some love at the following categories: Podcasts - Technology and Social - News & Politics. Voting closes May 6, 2021.
