Each week, Melissa Kirsch & Alice Bradley of Lifehacker's The Upgrade bring in all-star guests to tackle the stuff that matters—like how to be happy, how to buy a TV, how to be less bad with money and how to tell if you’re dating a psychopath. The show recently was featured in Apple's New Year, New You catalog and they are continuously growing to be one of Fusion Media Group's most popular podcasts. In this session, they are joined with their producer Levi Sharpe to have a candid discussion about what goes into making their hit podcast and the journey from writers to podcast hosts.
