    35. Ask Us Anything: Dan Price

    Dan Price was once the CEO who realized that he was making much more money than his employees. So he decided to pay every single one of his  employees $70,000 (USD) while taking a 90% pay cut. But his story didn’t end there. Now, he has been charged with assault. Join Debra Adey and lisa Schmidt as they talk about the August 18, 2022 New York Times article on the Dan Price allegations, and how they reacted when they learned one of the CEOs they once happily retweeted turned out to have a completely different persona than was presented on social media.  

    Further, find out why coming out with an allegation, as a woman, is so hard to do.

    When it comes to women, well-being and autonomy are critical.

Astute observations and deep insights

I will start by first saying that I’m coming at this both as a listener of the podcast and as a past guest who was interviewed. From both these perspectives I have been struck by the hosts’ astute observations and deep insights. They add so much rich dialogue beyond their interviews with the guests that by the end of the episode you’ve gained multiple perspectives on a topic, not just one! They both bring many years of experience and expertise that help you break down what parts of the work world are obsolete, what needs to change and why. And finally, as a past guest, the one thing that struck me was how much time they spent thoughtfully preparing, thinking through, and collaborating to create a strong episode - few podcasters do that. You will absolutely learn and grow from each episode.
