‘Leaders and Legends’ Featuring Our Own Leslie Bailey and Amanda Kingsbury

If Robert Vane's podcast isn't already in your regular rotation, add it ASAP. You can thank us later.

The guest list of Robert Vane’s “Leaders and Legends” podcast really is like that proverbial box of chocolates: You never know who you’re going to get. One week, it might be a Van Halen expert or an international opera singer. A legendary basketball coach or a Secret Service agent who was with President John F. Kennedy when he was assassinated in 1963.

But you can always count on Vane, a media personality and history buff, to ask thoughtful, pointed questions that lead to unexpected detours. Take this week’s conversation with Indy Maven CEO Leslie Bailey and co-founder Amanda Kingsbury: Topics included raising sons who value girls and women as equals; the local media void that Indy Maven is trying to fill; the long-term polyamorous relationship that the creator of Wonder Woman had with two brilliant women; and even, “If you could witness any moment in history, what would it be?”

The latter took Amanda to Biblical times, and Leslie to a bar in Detroit.

“Leslie and Amanda are two pull-no-punches advocates who give the ‘Leaders and Legends’ audience the straight talk about the challenges of being a woman entrepreneur and why Indy Maven marks a critical new era in local journalism,” Vane said. “They come out firing, and I enjoyed every minute of our conversation.”

If “Leaders & Legends,” co-hosted by Vane, founder of Veteran Strategies, and Danielle Shockey, CEO of Girl Scouts of Central Indiana, is not in your podcast rotation, we highly recommend you give it a listen. The lineup regularly features interesting women locally and nationally, including authors, CEOs, politicians, and culture creators.
