Sisters Pursuing Their Passions & Bringing Light to Women’s Equality w/ Amy & Nancy Harrington -14

Do you love to be inspired by others who dare to chase their passions? Then the Harrington Sisters will be a story that you will enjoy hearing. Their journey is made more complete by the support they have from each other and the fact their passion has been to elevate other women’s stories. They have multiple exciting opportunities they have built within their community, including a Summit that begins September 21st (don’t worry, you can watch the replay if you can’t join live). Tune in to the episode to learn more about the unique design they have created to share stories and bring people and perspectives together and then head to the end of the notes to find your preferred way to stay connected with Amy, Nancy, and the Passionistas. 

In their own words: As the Passionistas, we have always approached everything we do with great passion. Since 2010, with the Pop Culture Passionistas, we made a career based on our love of pop culture. Our positive and inspirational entertainment content — including interviews, articles and trivia challenges — has been syndicated to Yahoo, OMG!, Examiner, Screenpicks, Belief.net and many more.

We were inspired by the #MeToo movement to create The Passionistas Project, where we share the positive stories of self-identified women and non-binary people from all disciplines and walks of life. Our mission is to inspire women to pursue their dreams, overcome obstacles and take charge of their own destinies through a podcast, subscription box, monthly events and an annual Women’s Equality Summit.

We have conducted over 1,400 interviews including over 60 one-on-one oral histories for The Interviews for the Television Academy Foundation — including in-depth conversations with actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Danny DeVito and Ed O’Neill. Other interviews include Lily Tomlin, Ron Howard, Tina Fey, Carol Burnett, Ryan Murphy, Judith Light, Chaz Bono, Alan Alda, Penny Marshall, Lance Bass and Iyanla Van Zant.

We were handpicked by OWN to be part of the VIP digital press corps covering Oprah’s Lifeclass during Winfrey’s tour of the US and Toronto. We have produced interviews for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Rock and Politics, Rolling Stone Magazine and Rock on TV exhibits including a sit down with Mick Jagger.

About the Podcast

Are you a giver and a doer? Are you someone who has shown your grit and powered through, and now you're ready for the other side? Now you re looking for the conversations that remind you about self-care, that bring to mind grace and understanding, and give you space to reflect on purpose. Do you want more room to breathe and to live life with a little more ease? Each week, we discover tools and ways of thinking that support alignment, build stronger connections, help us find better questions, and live our best life. Most weeks we laugh, some weeks the topics touch close to home, but ultimately; this is where we grow together as seekers and thrivers. The Grit Show - growth on purpose. https://podcast.TheGritShow.com
