Hurry Slowly is a podcast — hosted by Jocelyn K. Glei — about how pacing yourself is the key to avoiding burnout, improving your productivity, and activating your creative mind.

If you’re a curious, ambitious person who is always striving to achieve more, but could use an occasional reminder to take it easy, this is the show for you.
