A weekly, one-hour show about how women rise up.

"Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller is a gem of a radio show...an hour of engaging and intelligent conversation with women who are making a difference. Do your listeners a favor and give them a chance to hear Inflection Point." --Hawk Mendenhall, KUT, Austin, TX.

Hear incredible stories from activists, entrepreneurs, and authority-busters about how they build power and lead change for an equal, just, and joy-filled world. Come away from every conversation with context, hope and inspiration. Plus, get expert advice and the tools you need to take action on the issues that matter to you–at home, at work and in the world.

Most shows are evergreen, you could air them now. New season in progress. If you are interested in carrying the show, please contact lauren@inflectionpointradio.org.
