    This Media Channel Has Been Desperately Calling for Something Different — Ossa is Here to Help

    This episode is all about Ossa, a podcast community, ad booking platform, and now app on a mission to increase the visibility, influence, and earning power of women and non-binary people in podcasting.

    Marla Isackson is the founder and CEO of Ossa. Before deciding to leap into entrepreneurship, she spent over 25 years in the corporate world, working for American Express, Citibank, and Barnes & Noble. Of the belief that podcasting has the power to elevate underrepresented voices on a global scale, Marla created Ossa in response to her own challenges as a podcaster.

    In a segment of the media market that has been desperately calling for something different (like more woman- and non-binary identifying hosts, and technology advancements), Ossa is carving out a space to make podcasting accessible, revenue-generating, and data-driven.

    The Cost of Delivering Growth: A Conversation with Uber's Global Lead of New Verticals, Jessie Young

    In Episode 006 of Curate Conversations, Pia interviews Jessie Young, who leads Global New Verticals at Uber, which means launching new products, categories and operations around the world.

    With a background as a lawyer, management consultant and finance leader, she boasts a host of failed and flourishing start-up experience as both a founder and an advisor.

    Our conversation centers around the cost of delivering growth: Jessie’s leadership lessons from launching and growing a global grocery online delivery business through COVID.

    In this episode, we cover:


    Putting the consumer at the center of the questions we're asking about growth
    Untethered growth and making decisions based on the wrong metrics
    How to entrench the loyalty of our consumers, and more

    Her take is that we problematise our sometimes blind celebration of growth for growth's sake — so we spend this conversation unpacking the cost of growth.

    We discuss the paradoxes and tradeoffs of growing a business, including when topline growth comes at bottom line cost, why peaks necessitate troughs, and how to balance risk and rigor.

    How to Create Human-First Technology with Dubsado Co-Founders Becca + Jake Berg

    In this episode, Pia interviews Becca and Jake Berg, husband and wife co-founders of Dubsado — our favorite CRM at CWco., and probably yours too. 

    Dubsado’s motto is: More business, less busywork. Dubsado helps your business stay in motion: Build relationships, schedule appointments, and create workflows to streamline your projects from start to finish. We use Dubsado every single day, and so it was so cool to get to chat with Becca and Jake about how they’ve built the company over the last 6 years. 

    In this episode, we talk about their main measure of success as a human-first tech company, how they almost exclusively focus on what their users want and need and use this to drive their evolution (they even have a public roadmap you can see on their website of which features are coming next), what they did to create more with less and grow their business, why customization sets their software apart, and the pattens of life as an entrepreneur.

The stories and insight you didn’t know you needed

I had the fortunate experience of having access to the podcast in the membership before it launched to the public. One cross-state road trip, I downloaded all the episodes and devoured them in one long sitting. And I have to say - CWco’s pod is so.well.done.

The stories, the frameworks, the heart - it made me think, made me cry, made me feel just fully fueled- like I was feeding my inner spirit. A really phenomenal podcast - I can’t recommend enough.

Pia asks the best questions

I love the Curate Conversations podcast! The guests so far have been leaders and creators of some of my favorite products/businesses. Pia asks questions that get beyond the origin story and are both philosophical and applicable.

Manifest It Collective ,

A must listen!

Thought provoking conversations and refreshingly honest dialogue. Loved the Parker Clay episode and the dear white women episode. They’re a must listen — guaranteed to shift your perspective.
