Episode #1 - Franny Does Cool Sh!t
Frances “Franny” Michelle Lopez is the Executive Director for Los Angeles County Brewers Guild, but this girl has been exercising her ladyboss muscles since she was in high school. From taking over her school’s Kiwanis club, to starting her own vinyl record label (for fun) in college, to her current dominance in the LA Beer scene (girl even has a beer named after her!), Franny approaches everything she pursues with determination, a whole bunch of research and a dash of sass.
On this episode, we talk about what it means to be a woman in male dominated industries, dive into the politics of craft beer, discuss how to fail gracefully and the importance of taking care of yourself first. Franny doles out some wisdom on how to navigate major career shifts and how sometimes, you just need to destress by killing some shit in Tomb Raider.
