Business Baby: Podcast Interview

business interviews trans vocal exploration ecourse trans voice Aug 23, 2021
Business Baby with Little Jo Berry's podcast cover

Those who know, know that at heart I'm an Ottawa stan. Ottawa gets such a bad rap from people in other cities (I'm looking at YOU Montrealers and Torontonians). But, I grew up there and started my freelance music career there and I can't think of a more supportive place to start a business.

Jo from Little Jo Berry's opened their vegan bakery and café just after I left Ottawa to go study jazz in Montreal so we never got a chance to meet in person, but I've been following the growth of the bakery since day one because I love supporting Ottawa businesses!

Recently, Jo started a podcast called Business Baby (a business podcast for pals!) where they interview their friends and business owners. I became an instant fan of the podcast because it's actually really hard to find business resources with the vibes I like! A lot of business resources are kinda straight and cis and that is not Business Baby!!

Jo and I had exchanged a few messages on Instagram (mostly about our love of pink!!) so I reached out and asked if I could come on the podcast.

Today my interview came out and I'm so excited to share it with you! We had such a good time and laughed so much and talked about Tiktok, trans joy, and all things voice education. Listen to our interview in the Spotify player below or wherever you download podcasts!
