In today's episode, we talk about mental health, our frustration with how suddenly way too many people consider themselves to be an epidemiology expert (we're looking at you tech bros) and what running a business through previous market downturns has taught us (and why that's not always going to track into this one.)
Maggie shares her wisdom about what core skills and practices we all need to be focusing on right now (hint: they may not be sexy but they're what bring in the money) and, of course, what's giving her joy.
