a podcast by Pawlean

Pauline Narvas

Is this thing on? Hi, I’m Pauline! Or also known as Pawlean. This is a podcast I created in 2020 as a creative side project in addition to everything else in my online space. I'll be sharing my thoughts on tech, careers, health, relationships and more! Also, who am I kidding? I created this podcast as an excuse to talk to some pretty cool folks as well. Grab a cuppa and tune in to my life in pixels... uh, I mean soundbites 🎧

Don't worry, those emotions are totally normal. But how do you ease the inevitable worry on your first day and your first few weeks?
