Om Podcasten

We have cultivated a platform for inspirational, innovative, and mold-breaking women to share their stories, on everything from personal breakthroughs to professional triumphs, as a way to inspire people in their own lives. We believe that this type of interaction between women is more crucial than ever in today’s political climate and increasingly isolated environments in which we live. There are many ways in this world to be a woman, and it is through sharing these experiences that help us feel less alone. We can find the extraordinary rooted in topics that seem ordinary. We can find common threads that connect women in communities across the world. By getting together, we can see glimpses of ourselves in each other’s stories.
