Misogyny is everywhere, including the E&A community. Carly, George, and Dan devote some of this episode to explore a recent experience Carly endured, compounded by the disappearance and murder of Sarah Everard, and what can be done to prevent it from happening in the future to create safe spaces for women. They’re also saying goodbye to Slack. Carly has a new podcast (don’t worry, she will not be leaving E&A).
