Podcast episode on authentic connections at WordCamps

Listen to the #PressPause podcast with a special guest from Mind Doodle.

How often do you take ten or fifteen minutes out of your day to press pause? Every weekday in the run up to WordCamp Europe, you can do just that. Pause.

WP&UP’s mission is to support and promote positive mental health within the WordPress community. For the latest instalment of WP&UP’s #PressForward podcast, they have collaborated with WPMU Dev to create a mini-series called #PressPause.

“It’s an opportunity to stop, slow down, and remember that, at its heart, WordPress is made up of people,” WP&UP writes.

Not unsurprisingly, the podcast mini-series is an excellent listen. Guests are interviewed by attentive hosts and the episodes are well produced and thoughtfully presented.

The third episode of #PressPause holds an extra special place for the Mind Doodle team because the guest is Tess Coughlan-Allen, our marketing manager, who talks about how she has connected with the WordPress community and found dynamic ways to contribute back to it, such as organising WordCamp Europe.

During the podcast episode, Tess describes the WordPress community as authentic as she recalls her first experience of attending a WordCamp and the genuine connections that can be made, almost effortlessly, between the people who attend. She is interviewed by WPMU Dev’s Micah Dailey, who hosts the podcast alongside Nathan Wrigley from WP Builds.

Listen to episode #003: Getting into organising WordCamps with Tess Coughlan-Allen.
