Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso didn't just write a book: she created a movement. Following the success of her New York Times bestseller #Girlboss, the controversial entrepreneur has managed to go on two massive book tours (complete with a tricked-out tour bus) and made superfans out of influential style stars like Nicole Richie.
Instead of moving on from her tome to create something new, she's turned the "Girlboss" concept into a full-fledged brand, complete with its own (surprisingly quiet) Facebook page, a new logo, and now, a celebrity-frequented podcast. The new radio venture soft launched in October, and features Amoruso interviewing "world-class Girlbosses who have made their mark in creative, cultural, and business ventures to extract solid advice from the lessons they've learned along the way."
Interviews have included A-lister Charlize Theron, filmmaker Liz Goldwyn, comedienne Grace Helbig, and screenwriter Kay Canon. She's also thrown Nasty Gal a bone by inviting the brand's CEO Sheree Waterson and VP of Design Sarah Wilkinson to chat.
Will the star power behind Amoruso's podcast actually make it a thing? We'll have to wait and see.
