This episode, Jessi gets out of the office and heads downtown to eat at a 99-year-old Chinese restaurant. Hear her conversation with Wilson Tang of Nom Wah Tea Parlor, as the two talk about what it’s like to inherit a family business, how Wilson added his own modern touch, and how he grew a small family restaurant into a global brand.
In the decades leading up to her breakout book Bad Feminist, Roxane Gay wrote every day, not knowing if anyone was ever going to read her work. It wasn’t until she was 40 years old that she had her first taste of commercial success. This episode, hear Roxane and Jessi discuss how the writer persevered through all those years of rejection, how she teaches writing to her students, and what it’s like to write the deeply personal memoirs that Roxane has become known for.
Jerry Colonna was called “the Prince of New York” by New York Magazine for his success as a venture capitalist. Then his life came to a hard stop when he fell into depression and realized that his work wasn’t all it was chocked up to be. He turned his life around when he started coaching CEOs, and found out that what those business leaders needed, he could give. Now hear the executive coach’s thoughts on how to mindfully bring emotions to work, and why tapping into pain points can improve leadership skills.
Hello Monday is back for Season 2, and our Editor-at-Large Jessi kicks off with a conversation with actor and podcaster Anna Faris. As a successful actor, Anna channeled the characters she played, whether it was in the Scary Movie series or The House Bunny. Starting a podcast changed things. She said, "I wanted a platform where I could feel like I was myself, that wasn't controlled by anybody else, by another journalist." Plus, Jessi and Anna talk about how she got started, comedy vs drama, and the tension that comes with having an audience for everything.
Today, a third of the workforce are contractors: drivers, designers, even doctors. It’s a number that’s climbing steadily. So how do they get insurance? Sara Horowitz is working on just this. Having spent more than two decades cultivating the Freelancer’s Union, she's now the CEO of Trupo, a new benefits startup. Plus: a conversation between Jessi and her producer, Laura Sim, who is also a freelancer.
For the season finale, Jessi talks to former NFL talent scout Michael Lombardi about how to assemble teams, why you can’t teach someone to be more competitive, and how to weigh talent versus character. Featuring reporting from LinkedIn’s managing editor, Caroline Fairchild.
Facebook's Carolyn Everson helped launch one of the most iconic startups of the Web 1.0 era: Pets.com. But before it really even took off, and long before its catastrophic failure, she was fired. It was a shameful secret she kept for years....and then, finally, shared.  This episode, hear Carolyn's lessons on why leading with vulnerability takes courage. Featuring reporting from Caroline Fairchild.

How do you balance calculated decision-making with trusting your gut? This episode, hear Angela Ahrendts talk with host Jessi Hempel about how following her intuition has shaped her career, from Burberry to Apple. Featuring reporting from LinkedIn's senior news editor Maya Pope-Chappell.
After decades of keeping a low profile, Melinda Gates has begun sharing more about her own life--as a young woman who aspired to work in technology, who wanted to protect her children, and who is now discovering that her words have as much power as her checkbook.
