Episode 25 – “If you’re not screwing up, you’re just showing up” ft. Kristi Gustafson Barlette
On this week’s episode of the podcast, we chat with Kristi Gustafson Barlette. She’s been a writer and content creator with Albany’s Times Union for over 20 years. We talk about how the job has changed over the years – from writing for newspaper and receiving mailed letters of feedback, to producing multimedia content and receiving questionable DMs across social platforms. Ultimately, she enjoys the new media landscape since it allows her to reach more people. We also touch on some of the struggles content creators deal with including the unconstructive arguing that happens on social media, and the strong opinions of the minority that can be mentally exhausting. Listen now to this thought-provoking conversation!
