Meet The Hosts

Meagan Sarah Collage

Meet Meagan and Sarah. We’ve been working together since 2011 and have yet to take a decent photo together. (But that doesn’t stop us from trying.)

People say we make a great pair, and we like to agree. We both love talking and writing. We both appreciate inappropriate humor, great food, period British dramas, and musical theater.

But we don’t agree on everything. In fact, we’re pretty different.

Sarah’s all about the details. She keeps Meagan grounded, helps turn big ideas into action plans, and does a lot of the i-dotting and t-crossing. She nerds out about technical stuff and social media and can make a bullet-pointed list like nobody’s business. She drinks coffee in the morning and white wine at night and is, for the most part, pop-culturally illiterate.

2015 BEYOND 65

Meagan’s a big picture thinker and big-time dreamer. She reminds Sarah to look up from the details and stay inspired, is always cooking up a new crazy idea, and is a natural-born entrepreneur. She likes to reinvent and question the status quo, and she loves drawing people together both online and in person. Meagan drinks tea in the morning and red wine at night and maintains a freakish mastery of 80s and 90s pop culture references.

This all sounds great, but wait: what’s a podcast and how do I get one?
