Hello again! The COVID-19 crisis has shown us how fragile and unsustainable our career and industry can be, and has many of us questioning what to do next. Let’s face it, things are not going to go back to the way they were. We’ve learned how easy it can be for our source of income to evaporate over night. Unlike people who work in offices, we can’t work from home, but perhaps using our bartender skills online can open up new opportunities and sources of income for us. But where do we begin?
My guest today is Shana Race, she’s been in the industry for more than 15 years, and she’s the host and creator of the Talk Tales podcast, online cocktail classes and more. She had a lot to say about her journey from behind the bar to new directions online.
Since I know you like bartender podcasts, be sure to check out Talk Tales in your favorite podcast player or on their homepage. You can support their show through their Patreon page or by leaving them a tip with Venmo (@talktales_podcast). Be sure to visit our homepage as well, and if you’d like to help support You’re 86 you can leave us a tip or pick up some You’re 86 merch in the shop.
Also, if you are interested in podcasting, you’re going to need a media host. You’re 86 is hosted on Blubrry and I’ve been very happy with the service. If you sign up for hosting on Blubrry through my link, you’ll get your first month free and help support this show. Thank you so much for your support, I’ll see you next time!
