We had the good fortune of connecting with Ashley Frangie and Leticia Sahagún and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Ashley Frangie and Leticia Sahagún, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
It started more like a hobby than a business. I think that gave us the freedom to grow the project without any expectations. But the podcast mainly began because we felt we needed a safe and open space to ask all our questions.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
The lessons are that we are not isolated, that when we speak our truth a lot of people will say me too. And that questions unite people and are the most powerful tool that has powered and moved humanity.
I think it’s the fact that so many people have been able to relate to us in this project because we’ve never pretended to be anything that we are not. We’ve said so many times that we are not experts and that we don’t have anything figured out, but that we do have a lot of questions and are willing to ask them even if this brings up uncomfortable but much needed conversations.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Since we are in a pandemic a lot of our favorite places are close or only do take out but we would do: 1. Picnic at the Silveralke Reservoir picking up lunch at Kismet.
2. Coffee at Lamil
3. Order Ramen from SIlverlake Ramen for dinner.
4. Desert from Dount Friend.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All our team. They make this possible. Each one of the women that are a part of our team are key to our success.
