“It was super successful,” Russell says. “I’d guessed that we would have 100 people, and thought 200 would be amazing as that would mean more than one person checking out the Pod we’d prepared for every minute of the 180 minutes we had the doors open. We had north of 400 people turn out. It was radical.”
