  1. Hey! Continuing on my vast binge catch-up. This was an interesting episode, but one thing I wanted to call out is that the idea of a “bar-con” or doing the soft skills work of forming professional relationships outside work hours is pretty loaded. I definitely believe that developing positive and respectful relationships with your coworkers is great for productivity, but expecting people to participate in “mandatory fun” (my friend’s phrase for these type of bonding activities) outside work hours is one of the ways that people with family or childcare commitments get set back in their careers. In my own workplace, I have a lot of coworkers whose first language is Spanish/Portuguese/Chinese/etc. who do great work but who could be put at a disadvantage by being expected to perform in a social situation that happens primarily in English. I think that going into the future it’s important that workplaces consider how their culture of unofficial socializing may be unconsciously giving workers of certain demographics a leg up.

  2. I also am catching up on this podcast! You (Kevin) mention using zapier to listen to your/Ursula’s square, then add a line/entry in a spreadsheet when there’s a sale. Effing useful… Can you please share that script or syntax?
