Do any of you know of any companies that would be interested in sponsoring @gitcutepodcast for the upcoming season? I decided that the only way this would work for me is if I can guarantee income for the podcast. DMs are open!

Being happy for other people is like a cheat code for free, zero-effort happiness in your own life. Someone elses victory is not your loss.

A programming language is whatever we decide it to be, fuck off with this gatekeeping nonsense. If you're just starting out/you know some HTML, be proud of yourself, it's a foundational part of being able to build the web, and the cornerstone of everything that's built on it. πŸ’ͺ🏼

As a child, I was told there were no children's books with Sikh characters because "people who look like you aren't relatable." I heard the same as an adult: "There's just no market." A year ago, we released ours β€” and now there are more than 25,000 copies all over the world.

You know how most women you saw on November 9, 2016 were either glassy-eyed or weeping? This is why. I am a goddamn person. Pregnant or not. A PERSON.
Watch this horror show. Republicans are now calling women's bodies "host bodies" Watch #TexasWarOnWomen

This is one of the books I recommend to all public speakers (new, or not-so-new) and it's now available online for free. Thanks @lara_hogan !
Public speaking (even over Zoom) can be nerve-wracking. But it doesn't have to be! I published this book years ago, but now you can read the WHOLE THING online for free: demystifying-public-speaking… πŸŽ‰
