Have you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall when two powerhouse women come together to chat? Now is your chance! Joining us will be Bridget Todd, founder of Unbossed Creative, and Cameron Esposito, standup comic, actor and writer.

Tune in to “overhear” their coffee shop chat about all things life, work and love in the time of COVID-19. You get to listen, laugh and sip on the hot stuff with them. There’s no telling where this conversation might go. And yes, you’ll get to ask your questions at the end!

About Bridget: 

Bridget Todd (she/her) got her start teaching courses on writing and social change at Howard University.

Since then, she’s trained human rights activists in Australia, done strategy for organizations like Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March, and MSNBC, and ran a training program for political operatives the Washington Post called “the Hogwarts of the Democratic Party.”

Formerly, Bridget explored feminist activism with the 2 million listeners of her podcast Stuff Mom Never Told You and produced a global salon with AFROPUNK, a music and culture festival, to where she hosted folks like Angela Davis, Ava Duvernay, and #MeToo creator Tarana Burke.

She founded Unbossed Creative, a  media company that makes podcasts and other digital content to push the needle on social change. Her new podcast, There are No Girls on the Internet, debuts on iHeartRadio on July 7th.

About Cameron: 

In addition to her work as a nationally touring headliner, Cameron has appeared on NBC, CBS, Comedy Central, TBS, IFC, E!, Cartoon Network and HBO Canada. She has appeared in films featured at the Sundance and SXSW Film Festivals.

Cameron has been named a Comic to Watch by The New York Times, Variety, The Guardian, LA Weekly, Time Out Los Angeles, Jezebel, Los Angeles Magazine and Cosmopolitan Magazine and was named “Best of 2018” by Time Magazine.

In 2018, Cameron released her comedy special, “Rape Jokes,” and raised over $100,000 for RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, by releasing the special for free and encouraging viewers to donate in lieu of subscribing and watching on a streaming service. Cameron’s personal exploration of the #MeToo movement debuted to rave reviews. A writer from the The Daily Beast who happened to be in the audience hailed the set as “powerful,” “daring and hilarious,” and as “the first great stand-up set of the #metoo era.”

Next up, Cameron is releasing her first-ever book, “Save Yourself,” a memoir that tackles sexuality, gender and equality – and how her Catholic upbringing prepared her for a career as an outspoken lesbian comedian in ways the Pope never could have imagined.

She also hosts her own podcast QUEERY – an hour long conversations with some of the brightest luminaries in the LGBTQ+ family. QUEERY explores individual stories of identity, personality and the shifting cultural matrix around gender, sexuality and civil rights. Cameron has also appeared on TV shows such as Maron, Drunk History, Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ and Comedy Bang Bang.
