In August 2019, we were super lucky to record a live show at Audiocraft podcast festival in Sydney. For this special Arrogant Aunt session we were joined by two amazing advice givers, Sisteria-fave and Hey Aunty Podcast host Shantel Wetherall and Christina Choi, a senior producer on Spotify’s creative development team in New York City.
