    Dreaming of being the change with actor Indya Moore

    Dreaming of being the change with actor Indya Moore

    Pose actor Indya Moore is achieving their goals in spite of living through a traumatizing childhood. Brought up as a Jehovah's Witness, their realization that they had been assigned the wrong gender at birth caused them to leave home and enter the foster care system. Their struggle not only to transition, but to find the basic comfort, love, and security human beings need to survive, left them beaten and broken. But triumph they did, ultimately being cast in Pose, the breakout TV drama about trans women that uncannily mirrors their life. Now a successful model and actor, they share the intimacies of their experiences with host Amanda de Cadenet, along with their vision of changing everything they can for those who follow in their path.

    A rescue plan for working moms with activist and founder Reshma Saujani

    Moms in America have always gotten a raw deal, but nothing showed it more than the pandemic. With no paid leave, the fight for flexible work, and discrimination in the workplace, it’s no wonder 85% of Millenial women say being a mom is a struggle right now. But help is on the way—Reshma Saujani, the woman who founded Girls Who Code and the Marshall Plan for Moms, is here and she’s on a mission. Her new book, Pay Up: The Future of Women and Work, is calling for private and public policies to completely reconfigure the workplace. “Cancel all the women's empowerment series that you have!” is her message for employers, “and focus your company on how you are going to change all your corporate policies to make it possible for women to work and have kids.” She’s got ideas – and the track record to prove she can make them come to life. Is this the woman who’s about to change everything for moms across America? Our host Amanda de Cadenet finds out.

    How to be a business badass with global marketing maven, Bozoma Saint John

    She has scaled the heights of PepsiCo, Apple, Uber, and Netflix—blazing a trail through boardrooms of some of the world’s most-successful companies. But it's been a hard climb, admits Bozoma Saint John, the marketing executive that companies keep on speed dial for radical solutions. In a refreshingly candid and searingly honest interview with host Amanda de Cadenet, ‘Boz’, as she is known, opens up about the pain that has shaped her, the energy that drives her, and the losses that have given her the empathy to achieve at the highest level. “The magic secret sauce? It’s human connection across everything,” she says. From her time as an Uber driver to what happened when Mary J. Blige interviewed Hillary Clinton, Boz takes us on a journey of a business life lived out loud—and shares her reflections of what that means to her now.

    Why I dedicated my career to breast cancer with renowned surgeon and researcher Dr. Lisa A. Newman

Host Amanda de Cadenet is joined by the internationally renowned breast surgeon and researcher Dr. Lisa A. Newman to discuss her cutting edge research, debunk the myths, (can the type of bra you wear increase your risk of cancer?!) and the surprising TV show that inspired Dr. Newman to pursue medicine as a career. ? ).

    Know your wellness. Investigating America’s billion-dollar industry with Fariha Roisin

    It’s a highly-lucrative industry, but who really owns it? In her provocative new book, writer Fariha Roisin investigates the origin of wellness from the ancient civilizations of the East and traces it to present-day America. As a Muslim, queer, Bangladeshi-Canadian, Fariha’s own intersectionality is brilliantly demonstrated as she questions the way wellness has been adopted by Western culture. But is Fariha right? Host Amanda de Cadenet listens in as Fariha opens up about her identity and spirituality.

All about self, hates capitalism, racism

This guest needs to read all history not select history. Try putting others first and serving the community not self. It’s really a waste of time.
