Podcast Review

November 9, 2019

There is no doubt that powerful businesswomen such as Jan and Arlene have experienced immense demand associated with success and fame. Their combined experiences could certainly make for compelling discussion on a variety of topics associated with the intersection of business and life (per the title of the podcast). Unfortunately, the pair fail to reach any substantial, actionable conclusions within their discussions as a result of the tangential nature of each episode. Although the topics, including family, love, sex, business and friendships are certainly of interest, most banter is quite scattered and difficult to follow.
