The 2020 podcast project

In March 2020 our industry was shut down and so most of us who could still work, did so from home.

Zoom meetings proliferated and so did webinars and podcasts.

I decided it was time to get to know the back story to a few of my friends in the industry.  While their work is mostly well known, how they got there was another story.
