Smith says: “Starting a company comes with a myriad of challenges, incredible highs, and difficult lows — it’s the nature of entrepreneurship — but as a lifelong media professional and entrepreneur, I saw an opportunity to advance the media landscape. I understand we’re on the frontlines of messaging and communications, and I firmly believe we have a responsibility — and a great privilege — to break through barriers and carve out space to share truths and champion stories that have historically been silenced or unheard — that is a really big deal to me and one of the driving forces behind Everything Podcasts. If we want to see change, we have to create it; we have to do the hard work to support a culture that celebrates our connections and values our differences as much as our similarities.”
