Who She Knows: a SheKnows Media Podcast

On each episode, the Who SheKnows Podcast takes on a topic — social, political, cultural -- and dives deep, hearing from a few experts who speak frankly and intimately. Hosted by Elisa Camahort Page, BlogHer co-founder and now chief community officer at SheKnows Media, Elisa and her guests don’t always agree, and that’s the point. How will we grow and learn and evolve, if we don’t engage in civil discourse...including civil disagreement? Tune in and hear from top thought-leaders and action-takers on day-to-day issues that not only affect women, but all of us.
