[EPISODE] The Glass Ceiling
Join Follow Me Friday with Joan + Priya this week as we talk about THE GLASS CEILING with special guest DEVON HANDY.
Devon Handy is the co-founder of the funny, fierce and unyielding podcast, Hellbent, a feminist political news and commentary radio show for those who resist and persist. Devon and her co-founder Sarah Lerner launched the radio show in 2017 to call out the racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic and all around biased people who currently populate the modern political landscape.
ALL of July we tackle topics about WOMEN IN BUSINESS. And every week Katie Claire provides educational and inspirational tidbits about our theme.
Our Sponsor for July: John DeMato Productions

Priya and Katie talk about the Glass Ceiling with their guest from The Hellbent Podcast, Devon Handy.
Priya and Katie open the show announcing their improved social media sites, thanking their interns, and announcing their need for fall interns. They officially announce Katie’s move to Rochester in the fall. They have a light hearted conversation about the week, Bette Midler, and more. They preview their discussion for the rest of the show, the glass ceiling and how it needs to be shattered.
Priya opens the segment introducing Devon Handy from The Hellbent Podcast. Devon goes into talking about The Hellbent Podcast, a space to educate and engage women in topics that are normally dominated by men. Devon defines the glass ceiling and how it changes for each person based on things such as a women’s race or sexuality and other factors that many people aren’t aware of. Next Devon gives her thoughts about the Me Too movement and how it breaks (one of) the glass ceiling(s).
They begin the segment with Three for Three with Katie. She talks about her childhood dream of being the first female president, Hillary Clinton and her own experiences with the glass ceiling. Next Devon continues to talk about the glass ceilings that people she talk to have experienced. Devon gives her advice for woman on how to deal with and shatter their own glass ceilings. Devon gives her information so people can get in touch with her, and Priya and Katie thank her for coming onto the show.
Priya and Katie open the final segment with a quote from Sam, “Equality does women and disservice because it brings them down to our level,” and they discuss it. They relate the conversation to the imperfections of human nature and how we may never get to a point of coexistence without unnecessary labels. Priya ends the segment with a discussion about intersectionality and how people can deal with extra layers of glass ceilings just because of things like skin color. They end the show previewing next week’s episode.
