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.

Launched in 2015, Inflection Point is one of the only women-focused nationally syndicated radio programs and one of the first podcasts ever to take a close-up look at the changing roles of women in politics, academia, the arts, business leadership, activism and more. We accepted a Gracies Award in 2020 from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation.

And now, we're taking a break. We welcome you to continue airing the show from the back catalog. You can hear our letter to listeners at the file below. Any questions, please contact lauren@inflectionpointradio.org.
