On a sunny Dubai Friday back in November, we got to interview Leila Serhan. I probably shouldn’t say this, but it was the one interview I walked into totally unprepared.

Marilyn was Leila’s point of contact during the preproduction phase. So she was the one guest I did not get to meet, nor talk to before re...

One of the questions I get asked the most lately is: why did you choose Who Run the World for Reyzin Media’s first podcast? Anyone who knows me knows I love asking questions. However, what many don’t know is what I love even more is giving long structured answers to questions asked to me. So here you have...

Shishas in hand (of course), our discussion quickly turned to why produce a podcast about female leadership in the first place. Sure there was the curiosity aspect, answering questions like: is female leadership different from mal...

I didn’t grow up with a sister, but I always wished I had.

I longed for the support and intimacy that I saw between my good friends and their own sisters. Don’t get me wrong I love my brothers more than anything, and I’m incredibly close to my mother, who has often served as parent, sister and best friend a...

If you haven’t started watching GLOW (the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) on Netflix, you should definitely get on the bandwagon. Set in the 1980s, the show tells the story of professional female wrestlers who were part of a show akin to WWE. There is a lot to say about this series created by Liz Flahive and...

I had a tough childhood. I'll spare you the details for now, but suffice it to say the kids in our family became grown ups at a really young age. So I told myself a story. I imagined that I was a warrior princess (Hello Xena!) from another galaxy, and that the world I was living in was some kind of ela...
