A note on this interview’s audio quality
This was one of the first Unscripted interviews we recorded in a busy live conference setting and without our usual recording setup, which is reflected in the somewhat low audio quality you’ll hear in this episode. This is not reflective of the audio quality featured in most of our videos, and we hope you’ll find that the fantastic content more than makes up for it.

This interview was recorded at GOTO Chicago 2019 for GOTO Unscripted. #GOTOcon #GOTOUnscripted #GOTOchgo
