Ep. 8: Chasing Your Dreams Into RealityThis is Our Time add
Are girls taught to think that leadership is a dirty word? Do we need doubt to make us better, stronger leaders? We walk in a dreamer, we walk out a dreamer. Even if that is incredibly difficult. But what is the path that can take us through this doubt? Co-founder Fabian Dattner reflects on her dream of making the expedition a reality. She believed in her dream and she built it, one step at a time. How are you going to build your dreams?
Ep. 7: A Visit from Lewis Pugh, The Speedo DiplomatThis is Our Time add
The women aboard the ship on Homeward Bound receive an unexpected visit from the environmental activist Lewis Pugh, also known as The Speedo Diplomat. He tells an inspiring story about influencing change in Antarctica. But then Monica Araya, Costa Rican environmentalist and activist, asks him an uncomfortable question; one he doesn’t have an answer for. Here we have a modern day parable of how we can break the glass ceiling, one tile at a time.
Ep. 6: Motherhood, Or NotThis is Our Time add
How can women be mothers....and leaders....and scientists? How does the concept of motherhood need to adapt to our changing world?

Ep. 5: Magical Thinking Goes A Long WayThis is Our Time add
Every woman has a different leadership style, and one style definitely does not fit all.
How do we make the style fit together and work for everyone? A little bit of magical thinking goes a long way. Sometimes it's hard to know when to talk about things, and when to let them go. Values at work, values at home...Allowing emotions at work....and finding another way to do things. What does success mean to you, to the moment, or to the big picture?
Ep. 4: It's Not All Smooth SailingThis is Our Time add
What happens when 76 high-wattage women spend three weeks aboard a ship in Antarctica, the most desolate place on the planet? Conversations ignite. Debates are sparked. About career choices. About white privilege. And about doubt. It turns out that it’s not always easy to agree to disagree, or to agree to agree.
Ep. 3: Braving the WildernessThis is Our Time add
What if ... we allow ourselves to leave our comfort zones. To the place where we agree to take on something impossible. What happens on the other side? Meet Dyan deNapoli, otherwise known as “The Penguin Lady,” and hear her story about the Treasure oil spill, the biggest challenge she's ever faced, and how it changed her life. Dyan takes us back to the icy shelf of Antarctica to a field of penguins. How does your life connect to Antarctica and penguins?
Samantha relates her reading of Brené Brown's Braving the Wilderness to this experience.
Ep. 2: Knowing Yourself is The First StepThis is Our Time add
Does one find leadership through a battery of psychological tests? Or is it more about something closer at hand? Knowing yourself. Deep down. And then, being comfortable with that knowing. But how do we get there? And if you get there, what do you do with that information?
You’re in Antarctica now and you begin to meet the women. They’re raw, transparent, and inspiring. Hard questions are asked about what makes someone a good leader. We start to hear the sounds of Antarctica, and get to know the women who are a part of this podcast: Monica Araya, Dyan deNapoli, Danielle Medek, Deborah Pardo.
