Breaking Barriers: February - Katherine Johnson

Welcome to the Breaking Barriers series of our A Little Louder Now podcasts. During this series, Alex and Alicia shine a light on two trailblazing women in a different themed topic each month. These two take their fangirling seriously and are excited to share about women who broke down barriers and reached back to pull up the next generation. This month, we celebrate Black History month. In keeping with that, our theme is Queens of Black History. Our featured Queen of Black History for this episode is Katherine Johnson. Without Mrs. Johnson, the US Space Program would likely not have succeeded when it did. Her calculations and analysis of orbital mechanics(which didn't exist at the time)were absolutely critical to the success of the first (and subsequent) manned spaceflights and many more. We celebrate Mrs. Johnson's unparalleled work as a "female computer" and the barriers she and other women of color worked to break at NASA. She is truly extraordinary. Take a listen!

Mrs. Madison did so much more than save the portrait of George Washington when the British burned the White House during the War of 1812. She worked tirelessly to promote bipartisan cooperation by providing an environment where members of all parties could socialize, network and negotiate amicably. Take a listen!

Episode 9: Interview with Marguerita Cheng

In this episode, Alex and Terra speak with Marguerita Cheng, a certified financial planner who founded Blue Ocean Global Wealth in Rockville, Md. Marguerita is deeply passionate about forging real relationships with her clients that extend well beyond a portfolio. She has built a company based on inclusivity, compassion and authenticity. What you see is what you get! Alex and Terra wrapped up this conversation feeling empowered and inspired to do something good for ourselves and for our community. Not gonna lie, when we talked to Marguerita about all of the things she’s doing, we began assessing how we’re spending our own spare time because if a woman as busy as Marguerita with three children and her own successful business can run three marathons in three weeks for charity, we can find the time to do something more too. Let’s get to it! Here is our interview with Marguerita Cheng! Music by Brittany Waltmire
