Fantastic & Important podcast
Audrey Sato starts off episode #1 with a bang. The XXLA maiden dispatch has nice audio, a well spoken host & guest, and a nice pace. A very important podcast for Architecture.
Refreshing and Much-Needed Conversations
Grateful to Audrey and AWA+D for highlighting these women. They don't get enough of the spotlight, and hearing their stories has been valuable to me as I apply it to my own experiences. Highly recommended for architects in all stages of their career. I hope this spurs more conversations about equity, diversity, and inclusion in the architecture profession.
Inspiring and informative
Every episode is both inspiring and educational. The women featured have so much insight to offer and demonstrate the breadth of experience and opportunity for women in design in Los Angeles today. Thanks to Audrey Sato for creating this platform!
