HOW I BUILT THIS
This podcast has a really cool concept, hosted by NPR, it is about innovators and entrepreneurs and a look at the catalyst for their business. It looks at businesses we’ve all pretty much heard of, yet don’t really know the story behind. One of my favourites is the interview with Rolling Stones founder, Jann Wenner. Others include, the founders of Buzzfeed, Five Guys, Rent the Runway and Kickstarter.
Hosted by the founder of Nasty Gal and #Girlboss Media, Sophia Amoruso delves into conversations with the leading women in business today, from creatives like Courtney Love, to the founder and CEO of Glossier, Emily Weiss. Lighthearted, fun, and easy to listen to, Girlboss radio is perfect for those who want a not-so-serious take on the business and the creative industry, while still learning valuable information.
