Ep 4: You Know What Would Change My World?!(Special CODE2040 episode)
00:42:16
Hey ya’ll! We’re really excited to release this special episode of Three Unicorns. Last December we went up to San Francisco Public Library to record a special episode in partnership with CODE2040 (www.code2040.org/) in StoryCorps’s (storycorps.org/) StoryBooth. We all dug deep into the impact of being CODE2040 Fellows during our summer working in Silicon Valley, how it felt to go to work in the midst of tragedy, and how we think the tech industry could be radically different. Listen, enjoy, and tell us what you think.

SoundBytes are like Three Unicorn mini episodes! In this first SoundByte, Lindsey tells us about a crazy resume trick a tech recruiter told her friend about and we thought it was just wild.

Ep 1: Where’s the Fire? (Pilot)
00:22:08
In this first episode, we’re already down to 2 unicorns! Michelle starts questioning whether there’s more to life than being a cog in the machine. Then, we talk about what gives us the FIRE - that burning passion that gets us up in the morning - and discuss whether or not we have found it yet in the tech industry and why. Finally, we close out our podcast with Blessings, a segment where we shout out those special people, places or things that have recently given us life. Huge thank yous to KZSU for the studio space and Otis McDonald (https://soundcloud.com/otismacmusic) for the music
