In my days of doing tech PR, I pitched Jenna A LOT. I stalked her on IM and hoped that she’d read the press releases I sent. I had so much fun emailing with her about food and music instead because Jenna is definitely one of those people who seems to be in the know about all things cool. She wrote this rad article about Turntable.fm (have you checked it out yet??). She’s covered Twitter extensively, and she’s always tweeting about great new bands, websites, and of course, news! She also recently launched a project after my own heart: Girl Crush Zine (Jennifer Egan as a contributor!!!). We’re thrilled she sat down to chat with us. So thrilled that we posted 6 questions instead of 5. Oops.

How do you listen to music? Like most people I know, right now, I’m obsessed with the service Turntable.fm. I put it on when I’m writing, bored late at night at home, doing backyard yoga, pretty much all of the time.
