As Mr. Peanut Butter might say: “What is this, a crossover episode?”  When she isn’t hosting There Are No Girls on the Internet, Bridget is having conversations about life in her hometown Washington DC on another podcast project called City Cast DC.  This week, Bridget spoke to Jade Womack who considers herself an “anti influencer.”  Working entirely by herself, Jade built an influential online platform called ClockOutDC where she gives suggestions of events to check out in the DC area.  She doesn’t take any money or advertising dollars, so her reviews are always no BS, never bought.  For City Cast DC, Bridget and Jade discussed how she’s building an online empire as a woman of color (without losing herself in the process). City Cast DC is a daily local podcast that will help you feel more connected to the city. SUBSCRIBE TO CITY CAST DC: https://dc.citycast.fm/ It also has a sister newsletter called Hey DC. Subscribe to Hey DC: https://dc.citycast.fm/newsletter/ And City Cast has local podcasts all over the country.  Find a City Cast podcast in your city: CITYCAST.FMSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
