Rebecca Lavoie on Her Podcasting “Side Hustle”

“I think being radically honest about what you’re not good at is important.”


Episode Notes

This week, host June Thomas talks to Rebecca Lavoie, who oversees podcasts at New Hampshire Public Radio and who has a “side hustle” as host and producer of Crime Writers On..., These Are Their Stories, and several other podcasts. Rebecca explains why her supposed side gig has expanded into a much bigger enterprise, and how she makes that work.

After the interview, June and co-host Isaac Butler talk about how Rebecca gets it all done and the “grass is always greener” issue of being on staff versus being a freelancer in creative fields.

Podcast production by Jessamine Molli.
