Maeve DuVally: On Becoming a Transgender Woman on Wall Street

WSJ Secrets of Wealthy Women

aliceko recommended:

Wow, captivating interview with Maeve DuVally, only the second transgender person at Goldman Sachs. I had to smile when Maeve explained why NYC is good for transgender people: 1. b/c NYC is a very tolerant place 2. b/c people in NYC are very self absorbed (LOL) Really happy to hear that Maeve had such a positive and supportive experience transitioning at Goldman Sachs. She says she "had a fear of being accepted her whole life and was never able to express herself until now." <3

Naomi Hirabayshi and Marah Lidey on Why They Made the Shine App

WSJ Secrets of Wealthy Women

aliceko recommended:

Shine is a self-care app that provides tons of focused and modern meditations and personalized notifications for women to help them get through the daily challenges of life. Among my favorites: "Channel Stress into Calm", "Enjoy Your Now" and "Silence Negative Self-Talk". I had low expectations for the Shine app when I first installed it in the summer. I now love it and cannot imagine my days without it. My favorite feature is the adult bed time stories. Reimagined tales of popular '90s movies that put me right to sleep (Sleep Actually, Men in Blankets, Sleep's All That, Cluelezzzz, etc). Inspiring story from the two passionate Shine founders (two young WOC!) Naomi and Marah. Learn how they launched the original idea through a texting program while working at their day jobs together, raising capital in the tech world, and why they think their company has been so successful even though they are not medically trained professionals.

Fascinating exploration on the high heel, its history (originally made for men!) and the ultimate contradictio...Show More

Such an interesting episode. I especially liked the dive into the history of high heels. This podcast asks a really important question: why are high heels considered simultaneously the most sexualized and the most professional footwear a woman can wear?
