Audio Of The Week: Positively Gotham Gal

Back in 2005 and 2006, The Gotham Gal and I did a weekly podcast called Positively 10th Street. At the time we lived in a townhouse on 10th Street in Greenwich Village and we would record it in our kitchen with our kids participating from time to time. The hosting service we used, Libsyn, took down the podcast when I cancelled our account and I can’t find the mp3s anywhere on our network. So these podcasts may be gone which is a shame. There were some great ones (and plenty of bad ones). I do have a dream that I find all the mp3s in a folder on a hard drive somewhere. That would be great.

We were a decade too early for the podcast thing. But now podcasts are a thing. Many interesting people, like Malcolm Gladwell, are doing them. And yesterday saw another interesting person join the ranks. The Gotham Gal has taken her Woman Entrepreneur Monday series which ran in blog format from November 2010 to August 2016 to the airwaves with a weekly podcast series called Positively Gotham Gal, a nod to our way to early attempt at podcasting.

Here is the first episode of Positively Gotham Gal featuring Margit Detweiler, Founder & CEO at Gyrate Media & TueNight.com. It’s a really good conversation about the joys and challenges of being a woman entrepreneur in the latter half of your career.
