On this special episode, we reflect on season two of She Builds Podcast. This season we went international. All of the ladies of our second season were from all over the globe. And man did we have so much fun sharing their stories. What were some of your favorite episodes? Which lady caught your attention? Did you hear similarities between the ladies from seasons one and two? Take a listen to today’s episode to know our thoughts. We hope that through the podcast you have learned about the amazing ladies that we discussed. We continue to be inspired to learn more and we hope you are too. We are going on a short break while we develop season three and we’ll be back in March.
