Episode 2: Don’t Quit Your Day Job

Today, it turns out we have a lot to say about day jobs — the second of our four themes, which we’ll be covering this month. We talk about how our day jobs shape our days, how we fit our writing in, and whether or not we’d ever quit. We also cover the best red lipstick color and what to do when the internet sucks you in and won’t let go. We ask for listener advice on dealing with unpredictability, and want to know what it would take for you to quit your day job. Plus, cats. Get in touch – we’d love to listen.
