Episode 40. Working As A Friendship Duo - A Look At Our Partnership As Co-Hosts & BFFs

A quick audio note: we experienced some recording difficulties with this episode, which our amazing editor Rosie was able to work her magic on. That being said, if you notice any difference in volume levels between the two of us, we apologise and hope it doesn't detract from your listening experience. 

As best friends in real life, and now partners in work too, we often get asked about our dynamic.

What’s it like working with a friend? Is it a good idea? How has it affected our friendship? 

We love working together, but we understand peoples’ concerns 100%. In this episode we’re opening up about how our partnership on the podcast came about, how we prepared for it and what we’ve learnt working together over the past two years. 

If you’re thinking about going into business with a friend or family member, or are simply curious about the dynamic of working friendships, this episode is for you.
