    Jessica Nabongo: "Catch Me If You Can"

    Jessica Nabongo: "Catch Me If You Can"

    Jessica Nabongo is a writer and photographer, and the first Black woman to visit all 195 countries. Less than 300 people have done that - and less than 30 women have visited all 195 countries. More than 200,000 people have followed Jessica’s journey.
    She has documented almost every aspect of her quest - the highs and the lows - from crystal blue waters in Indonesia, warm and welcoming strangers in Sudan, and the foothills of the Himalayas - and she’s captured the other side - difficult border crossings, sad moments at airports, and other travel fails. As a daughter of Detroit, Jessica has set out to demystify the world we live in and the people in it (and tells the truth about periods along the way...).
    Her journey also reveals bigger questions - how do we set goals for ourselves, and how do we go after what we what? And what parts of ourselves do we take with us, and leave behind, when we embark on such quests?
    After a year of quarantine life, it seems appropriate for THE WOMEN to TRAVEL. And there is no one better to do that with than Jessica. IG: @thecatchmeifyoucan
    Every episode host Rose Reid follows one woman’s journey to do the extraordinary, and Jessica has done just that.

    How Can Art History Teach us How to Heal, Learn, and Love?

    How Can Art History Teach us How to Heal, Learn, and Love?

    Stephanie Stebich is the director of the Smithsonian American Art Museum - that means she is responsible for the nation’s premier collection of American art and major exhibition, research, publication, education and digital-media programs at the museum and its Renwick Gallery. 
    Before moving to Washington DC, was the executive director of the Tacoma Art Museum for 13 years. She was the assistant director of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts from 2001 to 2004, and assistant director at the Cleveland Museum of Art from 1995 to 2001. Stephanie studied art history at Columbia University and got her master’s degree with a concentration in modern art from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University.
    Stephanie is the daughter of an art historian, and her wife is also an art historian - she is at home in the museum and with art. In this episode Rose talks to Stephanie about reckoning and reconciliation - what should happen to confederate statues? How do we welcome in the new artists and exhibits during a global pandemic? What does the art we choose to showcase say about our values and ourselves? How do you handle death threats after you choose to showcase art about today's most pressing issues?
    The Woman is a production of Rose Reid. We will be publishing every two weeks on Thursday. On our next episode, February 25th, Rose speaks to Jessica Nabongo - the first black woman to travel to every country in the world!

    "You've Mastered Survival Mode, Now it's Time to Live" (ft Sara Clark)

    "You've Mastered Survival Mode, Now it's Time to Live" (ft Sara Clark)

    The Women is a long-form interview show profiling brazen and badass trailblazers. For the past two months host Rose Reid has been covering the women integral on the ground to the Georgia Senate runoff elections.
    Following a very stressful, hectic, and violent election cycle, it's time for a breath of fresh air -- with yoga instructor Sara Clark.
    Sara leads yoga, meditation, and is certified in reiki. She left the corporate world to answer the call to teach and practice yoga. Just before the lockdown, Sara paused her life in New York (teaching 14+ classes a week) to go to the Caribbean island of Grenada. And when Americans were called back to the States, she stayed. And stayed. Sara talks to Rose about navigating the pandemic, grief, BLM, and high power negotiations. How does one transition during an epic time of transition? What teaches the teacher? Sara talks about the power of rest and the best thing about traveling the world solo.
    Featuring a sprinkling of Rose's meditation songs.
    On our next episode, we dig into the history of art and artifacts with the Director of the Smithsonian, Stephanie Stebich!

    The High Crime of Being Poor in the Deep South

    The High Crime of Being Poor in the Deep South

    Sara Totonchi is the Executive Director of the Southern Center for Human Rights, a non-profit law form which works to exonerate and mitigate those who are impacted by the criminal legal system in the Deep South. During this past election cycle, Sara oversaw 17,000 absentee ballots delivered to voters who are currently in jail.
    Every day, Sara fights the southern tradition for cruel and unusual punishment, and that includes the crime of being poor. In this episode, Rose talks to Sara about how prison conditions have worsened during COVID19, and about Sara's formative experiences growing up European-Iraqi in the United States at the time of the Persian Gulf War, and the impact of a blue Senate and its new Senators.

    Stacey Abrams on Fear, Freedom, and Love

    Stacey Abrams on Fear, Freedom, and Love

    Stacey Abrams is on everyone's mind right now. In this "Part 2" episode recapping last week’s historical events, we're revisiting our conversation with Stacey Abrams.
    Within 24 hours that Georgians sent its first African American Senator and its first Jewish senator to Washington DC - the Capitol was stormed. And just within days of the historic turnout (4.4M+ Georgians voting in a runoff), Republican state legislators are already at work to curtail future mail-in voting.
    After Stacey lost the 2018 Georgia Governor's race to Brian Kemp, she created Fair Fight Action, focused on voter protection. There is a lot of speculation on whether Stacey will run again in 2022, but Stacey's priority is still to make sure everyone can vote, and everyone's vote is counted.
    Rose and Stacey spoke last spring, and had a candid and intimate conversation about hard lessons learned from the Governor's race, the curious life of introverts during quarantine, and what the future holds for this entrepreneur-turned-politician-moonlighting-romance novelist. Before Stacey became a tax attorney, a grassroots organizer, and an entrepreneur, she attended the HBCU Spelman College in Atlanta and received her law degree from Yale University.
    Catch voter crusader - Helen Butler - from the Coalition for the People's Agenda's, lean in towards joy at the end of this episode :)
