New Must-Listen Podcasts

This is not a list of podcasts that are being promoted everywhere and you are tired of hearing about. This is a list of podcasts that have me hooked. They are compelling stories with binge-worthy episodes.

Happy Face

Summary: “For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.”

Why I Like It: We don’t hear from the family of a serial killer…ever? It’s mind-boggling how Melissa’s father could kill so many women, yet have a wife and kids. She takes us through her childhood, what kind of father her dad was, and how being the daughter of a serial killer changes your life in ways you never thought or asked for.

Broken Harts

Summary: “Markis, Hannah, Devonte, Abigail, Jeremiah, and Sierra Hart—six beautiful black children, ranging in age from 12 to 19—were all adopted by Sarah and Jennifer Hart, both white. On Jen’s Facebook page, it looked as if they were the perfect blended family, even earning the nickname “Hart Tribe” from friends. Then, on March 26, 2018, the family’s GMC Yukon was found belly-up on the rocks below California’s Highway 1. The news of the murder-suicide shocked their friends and made national headlines, leaving many wondering what possibly led to the fatal crash.”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of this story before, however, the story of their seeming murder-suicide isn’t the first time the Hart family was in the news. Jennifer and Sarah seemed like doting, loving mothers and wives. After all, they adopted two sets of siblings out of the foster care system. But as friends and family are interviewed about the couple and their children, it appears to have been an incredibly crafted facade.

Over My Dead Body

Summary: “Dan and Wendi are two good-looking attorneys whose wedding is featured in the New York Times. After two kids, their marriage falls apart. This leads to a bad breakup, an even worse divorce, and a murder case involving a menagerie of high-priced alters and unexpected co-conspirators. This is a story that says as much about love and marriage as it does about justice, revenge, and the lengths some people will go to get what they want.”

Why I Like It: This case is shocking and had twists and turns that I was not expecting. It’s a terrible story of how far some families will go to get what they want – no matter the cost.

The Dropout

Summary: “Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way?”

Why I Like It: I had never heard of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes before this podcast (I’m not one to keep track of new medical devices). Listening to this podcast, episode by episode, I was floored by her level of deception and lack of care for humanity. HBO also recently released their documentary on this story. Definitely adding it to my watchlist.

  • Met with the @nederlandctcc this morning at one of my favorite local coffee spots @saltocoffee to chat about doing some volunteer work with them for their marketing and website design. They do a lot of great work with the local youth in the area and I’m excited to bring my skills to the table and help them get the word out! Stay tuned - we have some neat ideas up our sleeve.

  • I’ve been going back and forth about what I want to post here on this account. It started as a personal account to share photos of life in Philly (now the mountains), books I’m reading, and of course cute dog photos.

But lately I’ve been sharing a bit more about what I do as a web designer and developer. It’s hands down the best job I’ve had so far. I love being able to blend tech and creativity every day. I also get to work with other people who are super passionate about what they do and get to be a small part of their journey. It’s pretty awesome.

I hope you don’t mind, and might even enjoy, when I share what I’m working on. One reason I like sharing this is to show that you don’t have to be a typical computer science nerd to be a developer. You can be a person like me … who lives in a log cabin, with satellite internet, eat tacos on the regular, and happens to get excited about creating with code. 💻👩🏼‍💻

  • Should you buy a pre-made theme or go with a custom web design?

In my latest blog post I explore when it makes sense to buy a pre-made WordPress theme and when it’s beneficial to work with a website designer to create a custom theme for your business (link in bio). #westcodigital #webdesign #webdesigner  #webdeveloper #webdevelopment #wordpress #wordpressdesigner #womenintech #learntocode #girlswhocode #remotework #workfromhome #denverco #boulderco #godlenco #coloradodesigner #coloradowebdesign #workfromwherever #womenwhohustle  #womenowned #smallbizsquad #femalefounder
