Since 2014, journalist Ann Friedman, digital strategist/entrepreneur Aminatou Sow and producer Gina Delvac have turned out weekly episodes of the US-based podcast “Call Your Girlfriend”. What began as Friedman and Sow recording their weekly phone and Skype chats has blossomed into a bona fide production, with the two friends becoming co-hosts. Each week, they bring an exceptional woman into the spotlight and laud her accomplishments in accordance with their unique “Shine Theory”. They also speak candidly about topics as diverse as body positivity and finance. Actress, writer, and magazine editor Tavi Gevinson is one of the many illustrious guests to have appeared on the show. In April of this year, Friedman launched a separate podcast, “Going Through It”. Here, remarkable women share the challenging situations life has led them to and tell of making the difficult decision: Do I redouble my effort, or rethink the whole plan?
