About This Show
5to9 is a podcast for the side hustle generation. For those who make their bread in a 9 to 5 job, and fulfill their dream in a 5 to 9 hustle. For the moonlighting culture. For those who want more.
We sit down with inspiring people for a conversation on how they fulfill their passions with creative projects, and why they do what they do.
Created with love and care by John Matson and Tina Yip.

09: Make Your Own Normality // Mara Lecocq (Founder of Secret Code)
In this episode of 5to9, we interviewed Mara Lecocq, the creator of Secret Code, a personalized children’s book that stars your girl as a tech hero. It won the Girl Boss grant last year.
We talked about her upbringing in France and the Philippines and how “not being normal was her normality”, her interest in technology and art, her 12 years as a creative director in advertising (where she’s been recognized by many industry organizations including the Cannes Lions, the One Club, and Mashable), how she wants to break stereotypes by offering diverse role models, and the hardest thing about working on a side project.
