Meet Shannon Martin. She’s the Communication Director for a Podcast Hosting company called Podbean.
Originally, her move to China was due to her husband’s career while in a large corporation. Usually, Shannon finds new jobs through means of networking; however, Podbean was different this time around. After an application and successful interview, she found herself soon to take on a whole new culture.
New experiences is nothing new for this travelling connoisseur. New Zealand, Canada, China, Japan, the United States are just some examples of her recent excursions.
Being a Director of Communication is quite enjoyable with a small company, as items, issues, and ideas are actioned swiftly without any red tape or politics (how refreshing!).
is a science-fiction novel that Shannon is deeply invested into via hard-cover and audio book version. What intrigues her most about this novel is the method of translation. Special attention to detail was put into decyphering complicated phrases and culture-specific references by means of a Footnote and much attention to detail.
