Air Date: June 27 2021

On this podcast episode, Shawna Patruno and Madison Brodsky, an internationally-known freelance reporter, host, writer and producer jump right into Madison’s experience with the Me Too Movement, bringing to light the harmful nature of sexual assault; how it has impacted Madison’s work; and the beauty of women building up other women.

INTERVIEW QUESTIONS: 

  • Could you expand on what you do? 
  • What was your favourite interview? 
  • Can you share what might have gone on with you, and how do you stay positive when you’re in such a limelight industry? 
  • What has helped you keep such a positive mindset with what you are doing? 
  • What do you think we could do as a society to change this? 
  • What is something on your heart that you want to share? 
  • What has helped you through this entrepreneurial journey? 
  • How do you feel about women feeling threatened by others’ beauty or talent? How can we change this sense of insecurity?

SHOW NOTES:

  • Madison Brodsky was movie star Meghan Fox’s first interview in fifteen years. The two discussed the pressures and challenges of being a sex icon in Hollywood. 
  • The Me Too movement, a social movement against sexual violence in Hollywood, is unique to place because of the media covering it so heavily.  But, even without coverage, every single sexual assault complaint is legitimate. 
  • Surround yourself with people who lift you up. 
  • Trust your gut. If it’s stopping you from jumping into the opportunity, don’t do it, regardless of how big that opportunity is. Saying, “No,” often allows you to do something even better. 
  • As women, we need to support each other. We’re stronger in numbers. Nothing can get past us. 
  • So many people abusing power are just human and imperfect. Good always wins. 
  • Follow your passion, not the money. 
  • See competition as an opportunity! Collaborate with your competitor! Work together, and you can change the world.
