It’s hard to believe that it’s only been a year since your wonderful daughter, Molly, introduced us by phone, and we began talking about your desire to provide a platform by which women of all walks of life, of all ages, and of various ethnic backgrounds can share their experiences. You may recall my first question (really to myself): Is there a difference between “who I am” and “who I am NOW?” … to which you responded: “Life never quite turns out as we thought it would, and that’s an important lesson...” What has amazed me about the TrailBlazers podcasts is that even though I’m an African American woman, now enjoying my own version of retirement, I find that I can relate to, and (even at this stage of my life) have learned from, each of the featured TrailBlazers, especially their different approaches to problem-solving and challenges. Thanks for giving us this invaluable platform.

Just listened to your podcast with Janice – it was so interesting! I’m still playing catch up on some of the older ones but am about half way through. I love the stories and appreciate the perspective it

These interviews are such a great resource and interesting listen– keep up the good work! It was easy to go to the App Store on my iphone and search and download the “Apple Podcast” app - then quickly typed in and found trailblazerimpact and clicked on the interview– simple! I’m getting into the habit of just popping on the app to listen on my work commute and at lunch when it is just me and my phone. Many interesting life histories to light the path forward for all – thank you!

Trailblazers Impact! A name true to the heart of it's hosts, Nan McKay and Dee Dee Strum. I'm a avid podcaster listener and find the intimate stories about these amazing women fascinating and empowering. It makes me feel blessed to be a woman and inspired to be the best woman I can be.
