The Means & Matters Podcast

“Share and amplify the messages you believe the world needs to hear. Who knows—maybe it'll surge like a waterfall and change the hearts and minds of enough people to positively alter the future." Leah Thomas

Hosted by 'Green Girl' Leah Thomas, this is a space dedicated to women shaking up the status quo in business and sustainability, and what it means to be a woman in a changing world. Leah brings her intersectional perspective to conversations with women leaders, like the head of the world's first B Corp winery and a Native American entrepreneur reclaiming the Nez Perce narrative through tourism. Whether it's clothing or coffee or conscious capitalism, it's about what happens when diverse voices with diverse life experiences lead.
