This year at the UCET Conference we were lucky to have journalist, podcaster, and author Manoush Zomorodi as our Keynote Speaker. Manoush is the author of Bored and Brilliant and the host of the podcast “Note To Self”.
Over the past year I’ve enjoyed listening to Manoush and her guests talk about everything from the show Black Mirror, to the Replika App, and even interview other podcasters like Dan Harris of “10% Happier”
