Sam Radocchia—Smashing The Myth That Women Don't Belong In IT

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 18, 2021 6:00:00 AM

Hear how the future is coming at us, fast

Sometimes you meet someone whose smarts, business sense and just plain moxie blows you away. For me that would be Samantha Radocchia (Sam Rad) whose story I proudly share in my new book, "Rethink: Smashing the Myths of Women in Business," which you can buy here and whose podcast I am reposting here as part of my month-long celebration of Women's History Month. Women are not encouraged to enter STEM, but not only did Sam not listen to that myth, she smashed it. Defying any one definition, she is an entrepreneur, a business owner, a speaker, an author, a futurist, a technologist and (like me) an anthropologist. Her story will inspire you.

196: Andy and Andi Simon—Innovation Games® Are What You Need To Imagine Your Future

Posted by Andi and Andy Simon on May 4, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how to use this time of crisis to re-think, re-create and soar 

During the economic disruption tied to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are indeed living in chaotic times. But chaos is also an opportunity to work in new ways, re-creating our companies and ourselves for the future. Tomorrow is going to be very different from yesterday. The challenge for us all, however, is that we are uncomfortable with uncertainty. So stop, pause and give yourself a moment to re-group. Rather than flee the fear, turn this into a time to use new tools to think about how you could do things better, not how you've always done them. Please join us!

Learn about the emerging technologies that are coming at us, fast!

Samantha Radocchia, or "Sam Rad" for short, is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, futurist and emerging tech advocate who combines the mindsets of an anthropologist and a technologistwhich is why I was so excited to have her join me on our podcast. Did you know that On The Brink With Andi Simon is ranked in the top 9 futurist podcasts for 2019? (You can read about it on LinkedIn.) This led us to ask, What is a futurist?, which led us to Sam Rad, a perfect guest for our program. Sam did a podcast with me back in 2018 on blockchain which was shared widely. In this podcast, we focus on her new book, "Bitcoin Pizza: A No-Bullshit Guide to Blockchain,"  as well as what has been happening with blockchain in the year since we last spoke. Don't miss it!

Futurist-technologist-entrepreneur Byron Reese is a lover of technology and history, which may sound strange. But he truly appreciates how the past and the future are deeply connected, and that if we don’t look back, we will have a much harder time appreciating where we are going as we move forward, ever faster and faster...something he examines in his new book, The Fourth Age: Smart Robots, Conscious Computers & The Future of Humanity.” Listen, learn, share!
