Welcome to WPCoffeeTalk, where we talk to all kinds of people in the WordPress community!

One of the best ways to get to know someone is to sit down over coffee and “shoot the breeze.” Here at WPCoffeeTalk, we do just that.

Find out what’s in their cup, what they do with WordPress, how they got started, some of their favorite things, what they’ve learned along the way, and more.

You never know what might happen over coffee.

As a matter of fact, she represents the best aspect of the WordPress community - people helping people. If you have the good fortune to meet Machielle at a WordCamp, you have been fortunate, indeed!
Taylor Waldon is a gifted content marketer. Besides her work at, she runs writing courses, is a poet, a ghost writer, and a fierce warrior for people with disabilities.
Sam Smith is one of the kindest, gentlest, funniest firefighter turned web developers I know. (He's also the only one.) I also get to work with him at GiveWP (you can all be jealous). It's always fun to talk to him, and this episode is proof of that.
In this episode Chrissie Pollock turns the tables and interviews ME! I'm excited to be your podcast barista at WPCoffeeTalk. This is my heart's work and my love letter to the WordPress Community.

Say hello to Kyle!
Dan Maby saw a need and decided to build toward a solution. The result is WP&UP, an organization that helps the WordPress community have access to mental health counselors, as well as information and help with physical and business health. It takes a special person to care that much about a whole community. Dan is that person.
Carole Olinger is what I call a real go-getter. This year she joined WP&UP to be the Crew Chief for, a huge undertaking where she and anyone else who wants to join will bicycle from Germany to Portugal for #WCEU 2020! Spending time with Carole was inspirational. I know you'll agree!
Paul Oyler was one of the first friendly faces I knew in the WordPress community outside of New York. A staunch supporter of the WordPress community, and a supporter of mental health for WordPress users, Paul can frequently be found at WordCamps in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and beyond. Say hello to Pappy Oyler here on WPCoffeeTalk!
Ben Townsend appeared in my Twitter feed one day, and from there a beautiful friendship (or several hundred?) were born. Ben blogs about all things WordPress - plugins, themes, core, the community - and in his day job is a Marketing Manager. Say hello to Ben on Twitter, and you may end up with several hundred more followers, too!
James Laws might like coffee even more than I do. He's also a huge believer in collaboration, community, and sharing knowledge. Co-founder of Saturday Drive (Ninja Forms, Ninja Shop, Caldera Forms, and Send WP - and a COFFEE SHOP), James also has a podcast. Maybe we're long lost siblings?
Michele Jones collects WordPress friends wherever she goes. A true community builder, Michele is always ready to share the love of WordPress. She's also tech-savvy, which she shows every day in her work at Thrive. Once you meet her, you'll want to be her friend, too!
Cami Kaos is more than a community organizer for WordPress. She's also its biggest fan, cheerleader, and supporter. I first met Cami in launching WordCamp Rochester in 2016. Over the years I've watched her fiercely protect and advocate for the community while delighting in watching it grow. It's an honor to introduce you to her through WPCoffeeTalk.
Steve Grunwell is a Sr. Software Engineer for the Managed WordPress and WooCommerce hosting platforms at Liquid Web. He's also an accomplished plugin author, speaker, and blogger. I hope you enjoy meeting him as much as I did!
