    Jonesing for Jessica Episode 1 AKA Ladies Night

    in Television

    Marvel's Jessica Jones is the newest comic character to be adapted from comics to a live action series on Netflix. After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica is rebuilding her personal life & career as a private detective in Hell’s Kitchen. It’s time the world knew her name…

    In the first episode of the show Jones is hired to find a pretty NYU student who's vanished, but it turns out to be more than a simple missing persons case.

    Hosts Brett & Elana will discuss each episode one by one with special guests joining in. For this episode they'll be joined by Sarah Jaffe & Steven Attewell.

    Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute & a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. She is working on her first book which is about social movements since the financial crisis & will be released next August from Nation Books. Follow her on Twitter.

    Attewell is a political & union activist. He got his PhD in Policy History from the University of California, Santa Barbara & teaches public policy at CUNY's Murphy Institute for Labor Studies. His essays have appeared in Esquire, Salon & two books on the subject. He co-hosts the Game of Thrones Podcast & is the founder & writer of Race for the Iron Throne.

    Jessica Bacal- Mistakes I Made at Work: Reflections by 25 Influential Women

    in Business

    Mistakes I Made at Work: 25 Influential Women Reflect on What They Got Out of Getting It Wrong by Jessica Bacal

    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Jessica Bacal. The original live interview was 11/13/15.

    Today’s women are being told to “lean in,” to assert themselves, to ask for more, and to analyze their work/life balance. But despite all of this dialogue, there’s something that is not being addressed: advice on how to recover when you’ve stumbled.

    Everyone makes mistakes, but for many women, acknowledging them can feel tantamount to career suicide. In Mistakes I Made at Work, I interview twenty-five high-achieving and influential women across a variety of fields—from writers to doctors to engineers.  They share their worst on-the-job moments, and how they used them as learning experiences to build successful and fascinating careers.

    Jessica directs the Wurtele Center for Work & Life at Smith College, an independent women’s college in Massachusetts with students from every state and from 60 countries around the world.

    Her website is www.jessbacal.com/
