    Discussing their launch of the podcast in 2018, the trials they faced, and the importance of pushing through challenges, our hosts emphasize the significance of investing in the right tools and resources to ensure quality and efficiency.

    "It's very easy to be like, 'We just need to be careful through that corner,' instead of learning and figuring it out."
