Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller is one of the only nationally syndicated radio shows and one of the first podcasts ever dedicated exclusively to featuring conversations with women about how we build power, what we do with it when we have it, and what still stands in our way.
In every episode you’ll hear incredible stories from activists, entrepreneurs, and authority-busters about how they build power and lead change for an equal, just, and joy-filled world. You’ll come away from every conversation with context, hope and inspiration. Plus, you’ll get expert advice and the tools you need to take action on the issues that matter to you–at home, at work and in the world. Produced in partnership with KALW 91.7FM in San Francisco and PRX. inflectionpointradio.org
Dear Listeners, Supporters, and Friends
On Inflection Point, we’ve documented the changes for women between two major milestones here in the US: From right before we thought we’d see our first woman President with Hillary Clinton, to today, when we might see our first VP woman of color, with Kamala Harris.
Inflection Point is one of the only nationally syndicated radio shows and one of the first podcasts ever dedicated exclusively to featuring conversations with women about how we build power, what we do with it when we have it, and what still stands in our way. This August, we’re making a change too. Listen to find out more or go to our website for the transcript.

"So You Want To Talk About Race" author, Ijeoma Oluo
An awkward conversation with her white mother about “good white people” inspired Ijeoma Oluo to take on the unenviable task of writing one of the most user-friendly books on race of our time: “So You Want To Talk About Race.” In plain language, Ijeoma has confronted deeply uncomfortable questions surrounding racial injustice from the school-to-prison pipeline to the Black Lives Matter movement to white feminism and intersectionality.
In our conversation recorded in 2018, Ijeoma wakes me up to the fact that solidarity between all women cannot happen until white cis women hold themselves accountable to the ways they have benefitted from systems of oppression. Most importantly, Ijeoma offers practical, everyday actions that you can do today to help dismantle the system of racism.
