Are You Ready for Smart, Amazing Conversations?

If you are you ready to advance to the next level, you need Smart, Amazing Conversations with Dr. Nancy, a podcast that looks closely at stories of life and leadership, for smart, amazing women (and men) like you. Every person has their own special and unique story that can help empower other women. In fact, Dr. Nancy realizes how much power we have in sharing our stories. They connect us and help us understand one another, which is why she shares her passion and purpose through her podcast.

Every two weeks, Dr. Nancy hosts fascinating women and men who write books, or have developed programs to help others, either by overcoming turmoil in their own lives, or discovering ways to be resilient and succeed at their chosen path. Many are nationally recognizable figures (or internationally, like Sarah, Duchess of York). Among them are bestselling authors, social justice activists, diversity and inclusion leaders, gender equality advocates, and humanitarians whose words of wisdom spark inspiration, ah-ha moments of realization, and further understanding through their insightful points of view.

Dr. Nancy chooses every single guest for their important contribution based on their unique point of view. From friends of the show Dr. Sheila Robinson and Gloria Feldt and thought leaders like Tiffany Schlain and Pat Mitchell to our first male guest Ed Martin, or our first video guest Elissa Fisher Harris — each is chosen based on their work and contributions to expand the conversation of how we can all become a positive force that impacts the greater good. (If you are or know someone who meets that criteria, email us here.)

Smart Amazing Conversations with Dr. Nancy is not a new podcast. Dr. Nancy was an early adopter and a pioneer in her field when she launched it over 10 years ago. She originally spearheaded topics like the invisibility felt by women as they age, media hype that steers women into thinking they have to stay young and beautiful to have value to society, and the struggles women face as they try to ascend the career ladder into leadership. Those conversations continue today, and with hundreds of episodes featuring so many fascinating guests under her belt, she also examines ways to overcome the cultural obstacles that attempt to block women from becoming leaders throughout our communities and businesses. While many other podcasts, books and blogs cover these same topics, Dr. Nancy’s conversations are both smart and amazing because of the guests they feature and the relaxed spontaneous tone of the interviews. They truly are conversational, making the listeners (and now viewers) feel like they are part of the conversation.

There cannot be enough voices on behalf of women and girls. We need all the podcasts, blogs and books-every one of them. In fact, it is key to the mission of Dr. Nancy’s foundation, Women Connect4Good, women supporting other women (and men), because it is going to take all of us working together for everyone to have a fair and equal share of the opportunities for leadership and benefits of living and working in our world today.

Dr. Nancy is as excited about meeting her guests and sharing their stories now as the day she began doing them under the “WomenSpeak” banner. Her experience and solid belief that we always find a connection when we hear each other’s stories make each podcast an individual journey into some aspect of a smart amazing person’s life.

That’s why we invite you to check out Smart, Amazing Conversations with Dr. Nancy not only on our website, but on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts, or watch on YouTube and to like, subscribe, and share with your friends!
