Leftos 1 year anniversary 2/25/16

Today marks the one year anniversary of when our very first episode came out! Countless hours of recording, aduio editing, interviewing, instragramming tweeting & facebooking, website designing and launching, singing, dancing, crying, and laughing later...we wanted to take today to recognize each one of the Left Os' indvidual efforts to our collective podcast! We created top secret group messages to discuss what award each Left O would get and this is what we came up with... 

  We decided to give you the “Bella Knows Best” Award because you DO! You keep us young, letting us in on all the cool new slang and updating us on college shenanigans. It isn’t just your age that made us think of you for this award, but your creative mind and “think-outside-of-the-box”   mentality. You are always coming up with cool interesting fun ideas. We decide to do a photo-shoot, and you suggest that we wear funny hats! Or we want to add an interview to an episode, and you suggest that instead we take to the streets, Amy-Schmuer style, and get a bunch of spontaneous sound-bytes from strangers! Whatever it may be, your ideas make our podcast 100% better and we are so thankful for that!

  Erin, we are giving you the "Dr. Fix-It" Award because you are our crew's problem solver in every way! You handle everything on the technical side, from podcast hosting on Itunes and Soundcloud to designing our website. We always turn to you whenever one of us mortals can't figure out something computer-related, and you help us with more patience than we can ask for. Aside from technical stuff, after a long days work when we are exhausted and emotion and conflict arises, we can always count on your good vibes to mellow the situation and keep us grounded. Thanks docta Er for fixin our problems from podcast to personal!

We trust you so completely to be the ultimate decider on everything aesthetic. Because of this, you are the queen of being hip!
