Minisode 002 – Contrivance Q&A

If you ever wanted to know how the podcast sausage is made, this episode is for you! We collected questions from our listeners and answered them in a special live Q&A session, which has been boiled down to this delightful nugget of a mini-sode. Join Britt and Andy to learn about the origins of Contrivance, how Britt finds new inventions, and why otters are the world’s best mystical water wieners.
