About this podcast
We’re a gang of friends who met on various Divi Community Facebook groups and have basically grown into a little family. Some of us have worked together on projects, some of us have even started full-fledged companies together, and all of us simply enjoy each other’s online company and respect each other’s work. Oh, did we mention we’re kinda fond of Divi by Elegant Themes? So much so that one day one of us had the grand thought — “hey, why don’t we do a Divi podcast?” — and the rest, as they say, is history.
