    Ireland Baldwin Doesn't Mind Talking About Nepotism

    Ireland Baldwin Doesn't Mind Talking About Nepotism

    In the season finale of Girlboss Radio, Avery sits down with her friend Ireland Baldwin. Yes, *the* Ireland. She’s a business owner, an expecting mother, a screenwriter, an animal lover… and she just so happens to be Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin’s daughter. And Hailey Bieber’s cousin. 
    The 27-year-old former model and DJ left behind her life in Hollywood and moved to the Oregon coast, where she founded Good Times, a wine bar, café and boutique, with her partner, musician André Allen Anjos a.k.a. RAC. The couple is also expecting their first baby together.
    Ireland and Avery met through Instagram in 2020 and have been friends ever since. The two chatted about parenthood, Hollywood’s toxicity and what we’re getting wrong (and right) about the nepotism baby conversation. You won’t want to miss it—it’s a spicy one.

    Deepti Vempati is Proof that You Should Always Listen to Your Gut

    Deepti Vempati is Proof that You Should Always Listen to Your Gut

    If you're like most people we know, you're probably a little obsessed with Love is Blind, Netflix's hit reality dating show that puts hopeful singles into pods where they cannot see one another. Maybe you've spent a late night or two deep-scrolling LIB Reddit, trawling for conspiracy theories, or maybe you have a dedicated work Slack channel where you and your colleagues can bond over the the hijinks that are enabled by whatever is in those opaque metal wine glasses.
    You do not have to be a Love is Blind fan to tune into this conversation with the breakout star of the second season, Deepti. Deepti was working as a data analyst in Chicago, she'd been single for a year following the end of a long-term relationship. A friend nudged her to apply to the show's Chicago casting call. Deepti was cast immediately, and got engaged to a man who can be described as a walking red flag. She then became a fan favorite by saying the three iconic words, "I choose myself" while rejecting her fiancee at the altar.
    Now, Deepti has a book out with the same name, she's launching a podcast and she left her data analyst career behind. Avery chats with Deepti about following her intuition, giving men no airtime, and what success looks like to her now.

    Georgina Gooley Chases Fulfillment, Not Success

    Georgina Gooley Chases Fulfillment, Not Success

    Georgina Gooley is the co-founder of Billie, a razor and shaving brand that flipped the conversation by being the first to show women's hair in their advertisements. Three days after launching, the razors had shipped to all 50 states and Gooley was featured on the front page of the BBC. That kind of success can easily go to a founder's head, but Gooley keeps an even keel, and maintains that fulfillment is more important than success.
    Avery speaks to Georgina about getting her start in NYC's advertising world, what keeps her up at night and work insecurities. Plus, our Ask a Girlboss segment has some invaluable advice about making your mark in a traditionally male-dominated industry.

    Nadya Okamoto’s Thoughts on Periods are Pretty Radical—But They Shouldn’t Be

    Nadya Okamoto’s Thoughts on Periods are Pretty Radical—But They Shouldn’t Be

    At 16 years old, Nadya Okamoto started a non-profit called PERIOD (period.org), which grew into one of the largest youth-run non-profits with a mission to address period poverty and inequitable access to menstrual products. Today, she's the founder and CEO of August, a Gen-Z minded period and menstrual brand and social enterprise. Nadya, who also goes by the alter-ego Period Fairy to her four million TikTok followers, is an unapologetic period activist. Her daily videos push against "taboo" topics and visuals—people menstruating. In this episode, Nadya and Avery cover a wide range of topics: the history of labor, the patriarchy, the tradeoffs of social media notoriety and the power of pleasure and sleep.
    Follow Nadya on Instagram and TikTok at @nadyaokamoto, and learn more about her work at nadyaokamoto.com and itsaugust.co.

    Solonje Burnett Is Lighting the Way for Women in Weed

    Solonje Burnett Is Lighting the Way for Women in Weed

    On today’s episode of Girlboss Radio, Avery chats with Solonje Burnett, everyone’s favorite weed auntie and the co-founder and CEO of Humble Bloom, a cannabis education and advocacy agency. They talk about using cannabis in the workplace, Solonje’s ever-evolving relationship with the plant (and Avery’s “canna-curiosity”) and how it can be used to build community, heal the body and, yes, even help with your productivity. Plus, Solonje shares her radical definition of success. We hope this conversation inspires you to think about cannabis differently—or at least think about your own relationship with cannabis in a new way.
