Sometimes we need to slow down to get somewhere faster
In the episode where we realise Amara can reference Taylor Swift and Eminem in the same discussion, the k pop queen evolves. This episode focused on the need to appreciate. Sometimes the best way to achieve goals is to slow down. Let's stop running at unrealistic speeds; failing fast is not healthy, nor does it work for everyone, so we are here to say goodbye to toxic mantras (especially in the tech space) and ways of working in 2022

The Great Resignation
Our first viewer requested episode which makes this extra special.Following on from our Instagram Live on 'Inclusive Intelligence', we discuss the revolution coming due to Covid burnout and mass exhaustion.

Basecamp: When Leaderships' Privilege Bubble Breaks a Company
Somewhat belatedly we take a meander through the debacle that was the Basecamp self inflicted implosion. What do Kat and Amara think?, well, the only way to find out is to listen. Are there wider lessons here for companies who are serious about walking the walk on diversity and inclusion? (hint, the answer is yes) and what on earth can we do as women in tech to get our voices heard and taken seriously by those in leadership who have the privilege of being able to treat "the political" as something divisive instead of something that negatively impacts our lives as women working in the tech space.Our hosts can be found on Twitter atKat - @katelyn_f_baker Amara - @amara_b_t_s

Working in the Post Apocalypse
It had to come, thankfully, as the world winds its way to a new normal what does this mean for work, especially for women, our intrepid hosts have no canonical answers but they have opinions, experience, and a misplaced confidence that leads them to share that on the internet.Kat and Amara share some of their thoughts about what it will be, what it could be, what it should be, and at some point Kat will accidentally swear. Please, find us on Twitter @QueensOTTAge for feedback and questioning our motivations, sanity, and anything else in your brain you want to throw our way

Negotiating, Because You're Worth It!!!
Knowing Your WorthKat and Amara are joined again by Shini, now our most featured and special guest, to dig into the thorny topic of actually knowing what you're worth to a company. If you don't, you're going to be undervalued, and as women we know its ingrained in us from an early age across most cultures to not advocate for ourselves, to be demure, to be grateful.Alas, this just doesn't cut it in when it comes to negotiating and getting a fair compensation package, so our panel dig into their experiences and advice to attempt to move the dial a little closer to parity the men folk.Kat probably accidentally swearsAmara represents for all the K-Pop fan girls out there

Recruiting Women into Tech as a Woman in Tech!
Rather than Kat and Amara talk about recruiting and recruitment as outsiders making guesses about how it all works, it seems a much better idea to invite an actual recruiter onto the program to talk about the process of profesional recruitment in the tech sector and the challenges women face.Many thanks to Shini for tolerating our inane questions and being a most excellent guest.

Leadership and Empathy
It may not be one of the first things people would pick from a list of skills effective leaders need, but empathy is a genuinely underrated skill that is so vital for leaders to cultivate. Kat and Amara discuss their perspectives on it, having it, demonstrating it, and being women leaders in tech where "Tech Bro" culture and toxic behaviour has devalued the skill historically.
