International Women's Day - Amazing Interviewees

I thought to celebrate International Women's Day I would give you a reminder of the amazing women I have had the fortune to interview over the past 14 months.    Each of them were insightful and thought provoking during their interviews and highly recommend to take a listen whether for the first time or as a reminder of how brilliant they are.
