Welcome to the WP Elevation Podcast! In honor of our 100th episode we’re doing something unique: I am the interviewee. The tables have been turned and I am being interviewed by our friend and former guest of the show, Jason Resnick of

When Jason joined us for his episode, episode #83, he gave my name as his suggested guest. I told him if I were to be interviewed for the WP Elevation Podcast, I’d need him to come back and do the hosting job, and he agreed.

So kick back and tune in to hear Jason and I talk about how WP Elevation came to be, what I do in my free time and much more!
