theSkimm's co-founders and co-CEOs, Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg, started their company from a couch. Now they’re bringing it back to one, and inviting powerful female leaders to sit down and chat about everything from celebrating career wins to the worst advice they've ever received. It’s an inside look at what it’s really like on the road to success. No BS, no sugarcoating.

Wanted to love it

I like the whole premise of this podcast and I really wanted to love it but I found myself extremely uncomfortable because the interviewer often cuts off the person she’s interviewing. I understand time restraints and not wanting people to ramble but it made me uncomfortable because I thought it was disrespectful to the very interesting people she’s interviewing.

Good podcast but they keep interrupting the guests?

I love hearing about women's experiences and the founders of the Skimm do a great job of bringing these stories to light! They're also pretty short so it's nice to digest each episode easily. As a woman working in tech in Silicon Valley, this is right up my alley for my commute :)

The main thing I can't get over is that they (or maybe just one of them? Not sure which one) KEEP INTERRUPTING THEIR GUESTS! In many episodes the guest will be answering a question, and the hosts will just cut them off and start asking a totally different question. In the middle of the sentence, not even when they're wrapping up a thought. A few times you can tell it startles the guests and they kind of just roll with it, but that seems really weird? We would like to hear what the guests have to say, please stop cutting them off 🙏🙏

Other than that I really enjoy the idea for this podcast and the content it presents!
