THESKIMM LAUNCHES NEW ORIGINAL PODCAST
“SKIMM’D FROM THE COUCH”
Powerful Female Leaders and Entrepreneurs Share What It’s Really Like on the Rise to Success

(New York, NY February 7, 2018) – Today, theSkimm’s production arm, Skimm Studios, launched a new weekly podcast that introduces listeners to a series of innovative, influential women and asks what it’s really like on the rise to success–everything from the worst advice they’ve ever received, to how they deal with failure, to who they call for a lifeline. No BS and no sugarcoating, it’s the tough stuff you rarely hear about. “Skimm’d from The Couch” features theSkimm co-founders and co-CEOs Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin as they talk candidly each week with a new, successful woman from across a variety of industries and backgrounds including Sallie Krawcheck of Ellevest, Payal Kadakia of ClassPass, Nancy Dubuc of A+E Networks, and Reshma Saujani of Girls Who Code. Weisberg and Zakin know a thing or two about the power of starting a company from their couch and the podcast promises to tell honest, inspiring, and relatable real-life stories.
“Over the past five years, we’ve built theSkimm from the ground up into a thriving media company with an engaged community, but this has been anything but an easy journey,” said Zakin and Weisberg. “On our worst days we’ve called on a network of amazing women to help guide us through it and we want to share with our audience what these women have taught us. It’s easy to read the headlines of accomplishments, but we want our audience to hear the real stuff, to understand that all successful careers experience setbacks, and that not every path to success is the same.”
Focused on helping female millennials live smarter lives, “Skimm’d from the Couch” is the latest example of theSkimm’s expanding suite of video and audio product offerings designed to engage its massive female millennial audience and deliver valuable news and information into different parts of their daily routines. The first episode featuring Whitney Wolfe Herd is available here. Future episodes will roll out every Wednesday and will include guests like Jenny Fleiss, Tina Brown, Leandra Medine, Sara Blakely, Reshma Saujani, Payal Kadakia, and Joanna Coles.
