Each week we are highlighting the news from WordPress.org that you don't want to miss. If you or your company create products or services that use WordPress, we've got the news you need to know. Be sure to share this…
It's David Bisset's weekly WordPress podcast and video roundup! This week we have Ines van Dijk on Women in WP, An Event Apart on The ShopTalk Show, Heather Brunner on Content is for Closers, UX and design on WP Builds, Joe Casabona on the Tavern's Jukebox, Josepha Chomphosy and Channing Ritter the WordPress Briefing, Syed Balkhi on The Gamechangers, and Dave Smith on key block editor features coming to WordPress 6.0.
Chima Mmeje on valuing yourself and raising your rates. Making the most of your WordCamp experience. The importance of community. What's the "WordPress Way" for payment models — and is it the right way?

With our partners, we’re bringing you new events and special programming like WP Career Summit. Some of the speakers who will be joining us at the Summit have been talking with David Bisset on The Excerpt — like Lance Robbins this week.
