You may have also noticed a slight change in how the podcast was introduced on this episode.

I've been wanting to make this change for a long time, and have finally done it. The word "female," which was originally chosen for the podcast's tagline simply because it rolled off the tongue well, isn't representative of the inclusivity I want this show to have. This new tagline embodies the show - and my values - much more accurately. 

The future isn't male or female, the future is inclusive. 

Thank you so much for tuning in to this week's episode of the show. Next week, we'll meet Navin Sidhu, who took her degree in civil engineering and turned it into a career in interior design with her company, Fab Hab.

See you next week!
