A Moving Forward First:
A couple of months ago, I invited Louise Schiavone to be a guest on Moving Forward after we shared the TEDx stage in February. Louise is a highly acclaimed and accomplished journalist and news correspondent with a long and distinguished career. She has worked for some of the most prestigious news outlets on television and radio and I was excited to have her tell her story on Moving Forward.

I was even more thrilled when she said yes.
But as I got to know more about Louise’s story, something occurred to me.
There’s a much bigger interview here than simply one about an amazing career.
Louise is a woman who overcame a lot of obstacles in a very tough industry that was not very forgiving when it came to work-life balance or being a mother.
I also realized there was an opportunity for a really great interview about how media has changed between the baby boomer and millennial generations.
As someone who regularly interviews people from all backgrounds and experiences, I could have tackled this interview. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized there was someone else would be even better suited for this particular conversation.
As it happened, I was also thinking about switching things up a bit and doing one or two episodes with a guest host whose experiences and expertise are a good fit with a featured guest.
So I decided to invite someone who I knew would be the best person to conduct this interview: Nicole Behnam.
Journalist and BeyondtheInterview.com co-founder, Nicole Behnam
I had the pleasure of speaking with Nicole for episode 161 last spring where we talked about compassion and putting context into content. Nicole is an accomplished journalist herself, having co-founded Beyond the Interview, and she is very adept at using social media as a platform to talk about human interest issues.
While Nicole has done a number of podcasts as a guest, she has never hosted one before. After our interview last spring, I kept thinking that Nicole should do more podcasts where she is the one asking the questions.
On this episode, Nicole and Louise talk about a number of timely subjects including truth in journalism, the challenges of being a woman in the profession, how social media impacts us as information consumers, the challenges facing the millennial generation, and more.
I highly encourage you to listen to the full episode and to connect with both of these incredible individuals, who exemplify the phrase “moving forward.”
