A podcast for long distance besties everywhere. Real life best friends Aminatou Sow (Tech Lady Mafia, Racked) and Ann Friedman (NY Mag, LA Times) get together across time zones to digest the week: high- and lowbrow, unapologetically feminist, we cover politics and pop culture, racism and sexism, personal news and menstruation. I edit and produce every episode, going back to our pilot 2014. Featured on Entertainment Weekly’s Must List and iTunes New & Noteworthy within weeks of launch, CYG has expanded to 100k listens per episode, sold-out live events and generates self-sustaining revenue from advertising. Past guests include: Huma Abedin, Melinda Gates, Valerie Jarrett, Kara Swisher, Rep. Donna Edwards, Rebecca Traister and Irin Carmon.
