We laughed, we cried, we learned, and we grew. Mayra and Michelle captivated the audience with their knowledge of the do’s and don’ts when you are planning to launch your podcast. And they delivered all this information with the amazing sense of humor that is very characteristic of them.

The format of this meetup was different from all the others.

First, Mayra and Michelle talked about their journey in creating their podcast; they suggested some equipment and tools that podcasters need in order to record and edit audio; but, most importantly, they created an atmosphere of community, love, and compassion that made us feel closer to one another. 

Our speakers recommend the following podcasts:

  • Entiende tu mente
  • Radio Ambulante
  • Sorry Mom
  • El Podcast de Cristina Mitre
  • Medita Podcast
  • Cualquier tiempo pasado fue anterior
  • Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 
  • TED en español
  • Latinos who Lunch

Nanndi was an amazing host! They provided us with coffee, pastries, banana nut bread, and cookies – they were all absolutely delicious.

Since the group was relatively small, we all introduced ourselves, followed each other on Instagram, and talked about our respective careers and journeys. Between the top-notch hospitality of the folks at Nanndi, and the conversation of our officers, speakers, and attendees, we enjoyed ourselves so much that none of us wanted to leave.

We’re sure Mayra spoke for us all when she said, “This wasn’t just a meetup, it was therapy.” 

We’re so happy with the community that we’ve created, and feel more motivated than ever to continue providing quality meetups for our members.

Thank you so much to our speakers, our sponsors, Nanndi, and our members for contributing to such a rewarding meetup! 

We can’t wait to see you next month!

Big Thanks to Our Sponsors
