The Notable Woman Podcast

The Notable Woman Podcast
I want to live in a world where women know they’re notable and whole and stunning, just as they are, so that they can think, create, lead, and love in a way that’s visceral, experiential, and uncommon. The Notable Woman, hosted by Cristin Downs, sparks conversation with a different notable woman each episode. These women are leading in collaborative, emotionally intelligent ways that abolish the hierarchy that has dominated and wreaked havoc on society. Our capacity grows through conversation and connection so we can become the catalysts that are creating the kind of world we want to live in.
