In 1993, almost thirty years ago, families were airlifted out of Bosnia to America, in a situation similar to the one faced by families in Afghanistan now. Our host, for the series Ladies Who Launch, Christine Merser, took a 12 year old girl into her home with her daughter, in much the same way American families are being asked to do now. "I have never talked to Nihada (known now as Nina) about what that was like for her way back then, but she said if her experience could help those coming over now, she would be happy to be interviewed. It was a hard interview. She was 12 when she came to live with us and we never discussed what it was like." Have a listen to hear what it was like for a young girl, plucked from the danger that surrounded her, and brought to America.

Anne Sebba's book, Ethel Rosenberg; An American Tragedy

Ethel Rosenberg. Not guilty. A victim of a patriarchal US government plan (you remember Hoover) to get her husband to confess by putting her on trial. A bad plan gone worse, and the destruction of her reputation and motherhood was a planned strategy. Do not miss this new take on the Rosenberg's and what really happened. Anne Sebba, who is a NY Times best selling author of eleven biographies is mesmerizing as she tells the backstory of the times and what happened.

Laura Singer Interview: From Foster Care to Law School

It's not often I have the opportunity to interview someone like Laura Singer, who grew from foster care child - to graduate of Georgetown Law School. Her story and her insight as to how she accomplished what she did, is not to be missed. There are so many life lessons; the three words she uses to describe herself, her secret 'hobby' that gave her confidence to go after what she wanted, and so much more. After her post on LinkedIN garnered more then 30,000 responses, we knew she was a woman to listen to.

15 on Friday: Glass Cliff; The New Glass Ceiling

Glass Cliff? Who knew? Leslie Grossman, interviewed by Blue Shoe’s Christine Merser, walks through the phenomena where women CEO’s are brought into companies where they have very little chance of doing a turn around. Who knew leadership challenges like this existed and that women are made for them? 15 on Friday. A new series by Leslie Grossman.

Time With Tanaka

Christine Merser interviews Patrice Tanaka around all things joy… Finding joy, choosing joy, in this difficult time of COVID and political divisiveness. Christine finds her way to finding joy, something that has eluded her over the past few months. It’s a great conversation about choices, how the Danish find happiness and even some conversation around Harvard’s most popular class (how to be happy) versus Stanford’s most popular class on how to build an APP. Not to be missed.

Leaders & Followers; The Responsibility of Both

Christine Merser and Leslie Grossman talk all things ‘leadership,’ including how to determine what followers you want as well as what the follower responsibility is in this new era of so many leaders and so little time. Are all leaders good? Attributes of some of today’s leaders, and of course the leadership styles of Donald Trump & Joe Biden.

Carol Rea from UPS Talks About Women Big Business

Christine Merser interviews Carol Rea, who works at UPS in Kansas City about her rise at UPS. Much laughter. Much reinforcement around working for a large company like UPS, and best of all, laugh about Carol “Browning Up” to deliver packages during the busy season at UPS.

Another woman’s story and insight.

One of the Groundbreaking OBGYN’s on Abortions in the ’70s

Wade.
