The brilliant Mary McDonnell reflects with her guests on the feminine in today's world, exploring what it means to be a woman in today's society. Taking from her experiences as an actress, she reflects on her previous roles, the film industry, women's careers in the entertainment industry, politics, feminism and sexism. Mary, with her guests, is smartly weaving multiple dimensions of women's lives, what motivates them, how their lives evolve, their motivations, the obstacles they face, but mostly how they overcame these obstacles.

This latest episode (#4) was the best one ever!!! I loved everything about it.
With this episode, I think the podcast has found a strong and true voice. Mary guides her guests into some deep reflections about their feelings, motivations and their journey in the world of acting, producing, and the difficulties they have faced as women. This conversation talked about what is expected of women in Hollywood and the discrimination and demeaning situations that actresses often are subjected to. It talked about friendships between women, women mentoring each others, and the power of social media.

What a deep, thoughtful, honest and genuine conversation between two very intelligent and erudite ladies! What a pleasure it was to listen to this!! Very refreshing to know that there are people like both of you. So glad I got to learn so much more about Gates McFadden

Thank you, Mary, for your ability to communicate w/ open-hearted compassion with your guests. You have a gift for asking perfect questions, which allow your guests to open up to you in a genuine sincere and authentic way! Do not miss The Lady Bam Podcast!
