    Imagine working at Amazon for 12 years and never getting a promotion. Imagine being called "stupid" to your face by a senior exec in a meeting. Imagine being so burned out by the toxic, relentless pace of your job that you take up an unhealthy drinking habit. Kristi Coulter experienced all of that—and more—in her decade+ at Amazon, arguably the world's best-known and most controversial company. Then she wrote a book about it.
    Today's convo digs deep into corporate burnout, Jeff Bezos, why workplaces weren't built for women, and what happens on the other side of your "dream job."
    Check out Kristi's two books: Exit Interview: The Life and Death of My Ambitious Career and Nothing Good Can Come from This.

    Lazy Girl Jobs Don't Exist with Team Girlboss

    Lazy Girl Jobs Don't Exist with Team Girlboss

    In this (very spicy) episode of Girlboss Radio, host Avery Francis is joined with Liz Guber, Girlboss' general manager, and Victoria Christie, Girlboss' senior writer, to talk about the latest TikTok workplace trend: lazy girl jobs. What defines a lazy girl job? How does social media fuel misconceptions about them? What does this say about our disillusionment with capitalism and "hustle and grind" culture? Why is it a lazy girl job and not a lazy boy job? And who can really get away with having one?

    How to Get Divorced with Lawyer James Sexton

    How to Get Divorced with Lawyer James Sexton

    Get your FREE sample pack of LMNT electrolyte drink mix with any purchase at DrinkLMNT.com/GIRLBOSS.

    It's a Girlboss Radio milestone—our first male guest. Ever.
    So why a man and why now? Well, as our host, Avery Francis says, "Women and non-binary folks continue to carry the burden of conversations about moving the needle forward. I wanted to invite a man on the podcast to talk about how they're helping us achieve collective liberation."
    While Girlboss Radio will always offer up our platform to women we admire, it's nice to get away from the echo chamber once in a while and hold conversations with guests we find interesting or can learn from—regardless of gender.
    And now, about our guest: James J. Sexton, Esquire, is a no-BS divorce lawyer and author of If You're In My Office, It's Already Too Late: A Divorce Lawyer's Guide to Staying Together who's helped thousands of people navigate the endings of their relationships. In the past year, he's become a bit of a social-media sensation for his no-sugarcoating takes on marriage (he thinks it's overly-normalized in society), love (he's a hopeless romantic!) and prenups (he thinks they're essential).
    On this special episode of Girlboss Radio, Avery and James unpack why women initiate the majority of divorces, James' views on eternal love and the things we should be all be discussing with our romantic partners before getting hitched. Plus, the starting cost of prenups and divorce litigation.
    For an episode that's all about the end of love, we think you'll find it (oddly) uplifting and hopeful. Happy Valentine's Day!

    Bursting the Kardashian Gummy Bubble with Dr. Jen Gunter

    Bursting the Kardashian Gummy Bubble with Dr. Jen Gunter

    "It's a scam." That's how Dr. Jen Gunter, the internet's favorite OB/GYN, describes Kourtney Kardashian's vagina probiotic gummies (called Lemme Purr).
    You can see why we had to have Dr. Gunter on the podcast, right? She isn't afraid to dispel the BS women are being told about their bodies.
    In today's episode, Dr. Gunter debunks the biggest myths about vaginas, from synching your period cycle to your productivity to needing to get rid of the (perfectly normal) smell with scented wipes and washes. It's a self-cleaning oven, people!

    Dr. Gunter is an OB/GYN, pain medicine physician and New York Times best-selling author of The Vagina Bible and The Menopause Manifesto. Her brand-new book, Blood: The Science, Medicine, and Mythology of Menstruation is out now.

    Getting Angry for the Greater Good with Soraya Chemaly

    Getting Angry for the Greater Good with Soraya Chemaly

    Ever since Avery became the host of Girlboss Radio, she's had one dream guest at the top of her wishlist. And that person is Soraya Chemaly. Soraya is an award-winning writer and activist, best known for her 2018 book Rage Becomes Her: The Power of Women's Anger. Avery refers to it "The Bible" and has recommended it (and even gifted it) to hundreds of people.
    In this episode, Avery and Soraya talk about why, as women, we're conditioned to minimize our anger (and replace it with words like “tired” or “stressed”), and how we can all harness the power of rage for the greater good.

    Testing, testing, 1… 2… 3… *Taps mic*
    Hey, Girlboss Radio listeners! Did you miss us? ‘Cause we missed you! Your favorite podcast is back. And we couldn’t think of a better person to kick-off the new season than Lilly Singh.
    You probably know her. From her 2010 YouTube beginnings to a historic time on late night TV, Lilly now has over 40 million followers and owns a production company called Unicorn Island, which combines entertainment with social impact. She's an Emmy-winning entertainer, actress, producer, New York Times best-selling author and gender equality advocate, and is debuting her first feature film, Doin' It, this year.
    We knew right away we wanted her to be our debut episode of season 3 and you’ll see why.
    Avery and Lilly chat about how they first met (it involves a Shania Twain concert and jello shots), how discomfort and change are stepping stones to success, and why Lilly refuses to be put into a box.
