I first encountered Lee Uehara as the founder of NYC Podcasters Network, but soon discovered she also founded Asian American Podcasters Association, and of course hosts her own podcasts House of Lee NYC and Upper West Side Corner Talk. We talk her about what drew her to podcasting, the importance of building community, and some ideas to help move through common frustrations faced by independent creators of stuff.
