    On our first episode, we’re talking about power: from the inadequacy of empowerment, to what it feels like to be powerful (and powerless); and how to change who actually has power.
    Featuring: Stella Bugbee, editor in chief of The Cut; Lindsay Peoples Wagner, editor in chief of Teen Vogue; and Rebecca Traister, writer at large for The Cut and New York Magazine.
