Abby deleted Facebook from her phone and has no regrets.
Sarah read Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond and Abby finished Like a Mother: A Feminist Journey Through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy.
Behind the scenes
Have you ever wondered how we produce Friendlier? Wonder no more! In this episode we share the backstory of starting the show (including our original failed concept), what we do to prepare for each episode, our recording set-ups, and the editing and post-production that gets Friendlier to you. We mentioned lots of links and resources, but if you have other questions please reach out; we’d love to pass on what we know.
- Other resources:
- Behind the scenes episodes from the Girl Next Door and the Mom Hour
- Kelsey’s blog series
- Pop filter (It makes such a difference in sound quality!)
- Microphone stand
- Sound and art:
- Freesound for sound effects
- Yady Kates for our logo and header
- Audrey for intro and outro music
Abby’s discovered the perfect summer snack: pickles!
Sarah can’t get enough of this white cheese dip.
