We didn't set out to need a media appearances page, we just share for fun. But somehow over the years we've been invited to several interviews, podcasts, present at major conferences, write, teach courses.. and even host a TV show. It's truly an honor and humbling.
Be in touch if you'd like to include us in something.
Want to book us to speak at your event? If it's online.. awesome, definitely be in touch! If it's in person? Well... quite honestly - we designed our lives to be location independent so we didn't have to be in a particular location at a particular time. So we minimize location based commitments for our own sanity. But hey, serendipity works out sometimes - we might be open to being a last minute addition if we're in the area anyway.
