Hi Everyone —
We hope this finds you well.
We wanted to introduce ourselves.
We're sisters, Amy and Nancy Harrington, who have been inspired by the new women’s movement and decided to use our skills as celebrity interviewers to work to tell a different kind of story through The Passionistas Project Podcast, the annual Passionistas Project Women's Equality Summit and our monthly Passionistas Project Equality Exchange events. Where many media companies reserve their platform for the elite, we are talking to amazing women who don't often get an opportunity to share their stories and who are making a huge difference by choosing unique paths. From the founder of a successful ice cream company to a volcano scientist running for office to an artist who makes sculptures using melted down nuclear weapons, we shine a light on the positive stories of women. Having built a career based on our love of pop culture, our positive entertainment content — including interviews, articles and trivia challenges — has been syndicated to Thrive Global, Yahoo, OMG!, Examiner, Belief.net and many more. We have conducted over 1,400 interviews including more than 60 one-on-one oral histories for The Interviews for the Television Academy — including in-depth conversations with actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Danny DeVito, Ed O’Neill and Charlotte Rae, former CBS president Nina Tassler and esteemed television directors Beth McCarthy Miller and Pamela Fryman. We were handpicked by OWN to be part of an intimate digital press corps covering “Oprah’s Lifeclass” during Winfrey’s tour of the U.S. and Toronto. For more information go to https://www.thepassionistasproject.com/about. We'd love to hear your stories and we hope you'll share them with us!
We are sisters, Amy and Nancy Harrington, and founders of The Passionistas Project. We have a podcast, subscription box and do live events telling the stories of empowered women who are following their passions to inspire others to do the same. We want this group to be the place you come for inspiration and to share your stories to inspire others.
Be kind and courteous. No hate speech or bullying.
