Floating Hippy Villages
Jae's back in the host seat to welcome Amanda to the show, we talk all about freelancing and how technology can both help and hinder it.
Amanda Sloan is a friend I’ve known for years, longer than I’ve known James; I’ve known both for a long time. Amanda and I first met when I replied to her tweet about a hippy village floating on the water. I once met her and her partner Thom for coffee when they came through my state; I also worked with Amanda on the podcast network Dragon Powered Studios.
Amanda co-runs Geek Herring, is a writer, does workshops and more. She also streams on Twitch in her off-hours, but gosh knows how she has the time. She also works in freelance, which is one of the reasons we asked her to come and chat to us for this episode.
We’d love to hear about your freelancing experiences or any questions you may have, so please leave a comment below, email us via email@example.com or start a discussion over Goodpods.
