Introducing the On-Call Me Maybe Podcast!
by Adriana Villela
Y’all, I am so excited to announce that Ana Margarita Medina and I just launched the On-Call Me Maybe podcast! This podcast is dedicated to nerding out on all things DevOps, SRE, Observability, On-Call, and everything in between. Want to learn more? Then read on, my friend!
Ana and I met when we both joined Lightstep as Developer Advocates in April of this year, and though we haven’t known each other for very long, we are very much partners in crime.
I’m super excited about this collaboration because Ana is a fellow Latina in tech. Being in a male-dominated industry, it’s been beyond super cool to work with a fellow tech gal from a similar cultural background. I was originally born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and moved to Canada when I was 10. Ana hails from Costa Rica, and her parents are from Nicaragua. She moved to the US when she was in elementary school. We bring some of the flair of our respective backgrounds to this podcast. 😎
We want to use this podcast as a platform for nerdy tech discussions, sociotechnical systems, mental health, and diversity & inclusion…and our guests reflect that! We want to connect our audience with folks from all walks of tech. You’ll hear from some familiar faces, and some not-so-familiar faces. Our conversations are fun and casual, with chill vibes all around.
Our first episode dropped on September 6th. It features a conversation between Ana and me, as we talk about our beginnings in tech. We’ll be coming at you with new episodes on a weekly basis. You’ll be hearing from folks at Honeycomb, Jeli, ThoughtWorks, HashiCorp, Wavelo, and more! We’ve also got a couple of guest hosts, including Alex Boten and Ted Young.
Peace, love, and code. 🌈 🦄 💫
