Join cohost Vallery for a conversation with Janet McCracken and Joseph Hernandez. We discuss how to balance our time and energy as freelancers, while still working on larger projects that are important to us.

Over the past 20 years, Janet McCracken has served as an editor, recipe developer, and recipe tester at a variety of publications, including the Los Angeles Times, Bon Appetit, and Rachael Ray Every Day. She believes in the zen of pie-making, that ice cream is the perfect food, and that sharing a meal with family and friends is the finest way to spend any part of the day.  She splits her time between NYC and Connecticut.

Joseph Hernandez is an award-winning freelance editor and writer. He previously served as the deputy editor of food and dining at the Chicago Tribune, senior travel editor at Thrillist, and most recently as senior editor at SevenFifty Daily, overseeing coverage of the wine and spirits industries. A proud Chicagoan, he resides in Brooklyn home with his husband and hedgehog.
