TALK: How Important Are Podcasts?

  • JIG+SAW 755-769 Bay St Los Angeles, CA, 90021 United States (map)

with hosts, stephanie simbari + elizabeth kott, creators of That's So Retrograde

The podcast discussion resonates so timely as many of us are thinking of starting one as a platform/extension of our businesses or feeling inclined to certain podcasts to guide their life (Liz Gilbert or Ilana Glazer? You tell me.) Podcasts are the gateway to so education cliff notes, listening and learning from all kinds of experts + educations, entertainers and doctors. But, does it help to have a podcast as an extension of your business or as your total business? We'll be exploring the benefits and the importance of how podcasting works, understanding how to find your audience and why Stephanie + Elizabeth decided on creating a podcast geared towards exploring holistic health as an entry point to an audience. You may just ask yourself, where's my mic at?

what is a jig+saw talk?


These talks are not your average congregation of people. Talks are about hyper-focusing on a core topic that keeps our businesses moving. These are built on two-hour segments, led by a host + JIG+SAW Founder Christina, in an open forum. What does that mean? We want to encourage more communication in your circle/tribe/posse/crew (whatever you call yours) and these talks create that open environment for more sharing and more insight. These talks will NOT be about listening to someone speak for two hours; it's about learning and contributing to the conversation + topic at hand. You'll not only leave with educational insight on the topic but you'll have a stronger grasp at your community around you, what you're really capable of and how important it is to come together.

Stephanie Simbari + Elizabeth Kott, Creators of the infamous podcast, That's So Retrograde

stephanie simbari is a funny creative who names comedian / actress / writer and host as some of her titles. she was born and raised in the suburbs of new york city and spent most of her teen years drinking malt liquor and taking the train to nyc to get body piercings she would later live to regret. she's since mostly cleaned up her act and become a devoted yogini and spiritual seeker. she tours the country as a stand up comedian, and was a series regular on 'funny girls' on oxygen. you can find her on netflix in the critically acclaimed indie film 'coldwater' and she co-hosts her very own podcast, the highly rated and what many have called "life changing" wellness show, 'that's so retrograde'. find her on instagram if you want to follow a cute girl who's usually fully clothed. @stephsimbari

bringing conversations of consciousness to the forefront and supporting others through their wellness journey with realness and humor is elizabeth's calling. prior to doing so as co-host and producer of that’s so retrograde, elizabeth was an established leader in the digital fashion space, having started her career working for rachel zoe, as a founding team member of the zoe report and then as creator of famed online fashion consignment website, recognized by elle magazine, refinery 29, and entrepreneur magazine for her work, kott names producer, writer, mentor, stylist and creative director as some of her most worn hats. for shameless self promotion coupled with aesthetically pleasing photos, you can find her on social media: @elizabethkott.
