Did Elizabeth Holmes Kill the Concept of the Girlboss?

Thursday, 9 September

On this week’s episode of The Waves, Slate Money co-host Emily Peck and Slate senior editor Shannon Palus talk all things #girlboss. They explore how the concept went from being a sought-after status to a ridiculed slogan. Then they dive into the upcoming trial of possible former (and current?) girlboss Elizabeth Holmes and talk about whether potential trial strategies and defenses are sexist.  Recommendations: Shannon: Jessica Knoll’s 2015 novel, The Luckiest Girl Alive.  Emily: The Cathy comic strip podcast, Aack Cast.    Podcast production by Cheyna Roth with editorial oversight by Susan Matthews and June Thomas.  Send your comments and recommendations on what to cover to thewaves@slate.com Learn more about your ad choices.
