Episode Summary

I've closely followed Jenna and watched listened as her career has expanded from director of audio at BuzzFeed to starting her own company Pineapple Street Media.  In this episode, we talk about risks of entrepreneurship, following your dreams...while also being realistic, criticism and how to use it beneficially, parenting, and of course podcasting at length, since she's one of the greatest audio producers and story tellers of our time. Her company has produced podcasts with Hillary Clinton's campaign and the New York Times.
