Nourish Me with What I Need. On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with author and podcast host L. Michelle Smith. Her book, "No Thanks," is a leadership guide for women of color and is stuffed full of ways to navigate the gap between what is offered and what it will take for a woman to succeed. https://lmichellesmith.com/nothanks/

We’ll also talk with writer, actor, and documentary filmmaker Lauren Henderson Starkweather. Kerry came across Lauren’s article about her life as a bedridden young woman, and how she found hope in “Starbright World,” a digital world for chronically ill teens. We’ll talk with Lauren about finding community, hope, and love in the digital space, as well as how she’s doing now. https://narratively.com/life-inside-a-digital-world-for-chronically-ill-teens/
