The Broadly Entertaining Podcast
By Broadly Entertaining
Fun, games and feminism with business owners and best friends, Giana DeGeiso in New York and Jamie Rosler in Austin, Texas. They are planning parties, emceeing events, doing improv comedy, officiating weddings and more, all while learning from other talented artists and entrepreneurs along the way.
Broadly Entertaining confessions! Jamie and Giana don't like some things that perhaps they should, which inspires a stroll down memory lane. Who will win the Women Mean Business pop quiz?! (We don't officially keep score but there's a pretty clear defeat.) BE A Feminist is all about reproductive health this month, promoting abortion funds and better support for people with endometriosis. Links below for more info. (We recognize that not everyone who needs abortion access or suffers from endometriosis identifies as a woman.)
