What do Survivor contestants, Polynesian way-finders, and professional futurists have in common? They all can help us navigate today’s unprecedented challenges, and they all are guests of BCG BrightHouse’s podcast, She Wonders (Season 2).
Creating unlikely pairings to illuminate unexpected answers, Season 2 of She Wonders brings Luminaries with unique backgrounds in conversation with BCG BrightHouse CEO, Ashley Grice—uncovering novel solutions to the most pressing challenges exacerbated in the past two years.
To put the podcast together, the She Wonders team first identified the biggest psychological hurdles of a post-2020/21 world: namely, uncertainty, anxiety, loneliness, and feelings of scarcity. Then, we identified Luminaries who could draw from uncommon expertise to bring divergent perspectives that spark novel answers for navigating these challenges.
After preparing some questions and whetting our appetite for discovery, we let the conversation take its natural course: enjoying the magic that arises from the crossing of divergent ideas.
She Wonders Season 2 includes 3 episodes, each of which puts a Luminary in conversation with BCG BrightHouse CEO, Ashley Grice, to spark novel ideas for our timeliest challenges.
