The Sydcast is all about intimate and informative conversations with fascinating people you may not know. Until now. Because everyone has a story.
Listen in as Syd talks to entrepreneurs, community leaders, professional athletes, politicians, academics, authors, musicians, and many more about who they are and how they got there.
Sydney Finkelstein is an award winning professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and a best-selling author of Superbosses and 25 other books. He’s written for the Harvard Business Review, the BBC, Fortune, Forbes, the Wall Street Journal, and more academic journals than you’d care to know about. He spends his time asking questions, and sometimes, even answering them.
Every now and then you come across someone who is the archetypical SydCast guest - mostly known only to friends, exciting aspirations, multiple careers, big opinions, no excuses. Meet Marissa Smith.
I’ve known Marisa Smith for a long time, but only recently did we sit down to really talk. On The Sydcast. In fact, one of my favorite things about Marissa is that she is outspoken in, well, how to be outspoken. She’s a playwright and a book publisher, a Mom and a Grand Mom, and an activist and a thinker. And she’s a wonderful story teller, with her best story being her own. Marisa has some fascinating thoughts to share on love and relationships (she’s honest), on political correctness (she hates it), and on what it’s like to transition careers, make things happen, and live a creative life in every sense of the term (she’s doing it).
