Two girls, one podcast… Your hosts Maggie Kouri Hill and Gina Cafasso discuss the good, the bad and the ugly we women face while surviving in this great, big world. No topic is too big or too small. We’re raw… a little rude… and always real!
GINA CAFASSO is the creator of the blog Lipstick, Shoes, Men and Other Pointy Things. She has a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Sociology from UCLA and garners over 18 years of experience in marketing, advertising, project management, multimedia, music, film production and more. She is an optimist by nature, sometimes skeptical, and an opinionated Blogger/Podcaster with a penchant to empower others. She is a nose to the grindstone, even-tempered, Italian gal who is sensitive, logical and always curious. Growing up as a dancer, the arts have always been at the forefront of her life. She picked up an interest in storytelling, writing short stories which lead to co-writing screenplays and songs with her brother Joseph. She worked as a crew member on a number of feature films, is an award-winning short film director, and co-hosted WSRadio’s online movie review show “Movie Mavens.” When she is not writing, podcasting, hanging out with family & friends, or sleeping, she works as Project Manager/Business Analyst for a San Diego-based Resort company working alongside the Strategic Solutions team. A native of California, she enjoys sunsets, long walks on the bea…and sarcasm. Gina has had the pleasure of working for some high-profile companies such as Yahoo!, DreamWorks SKG, Disney, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., AKQA, and the San Diego Union-Tribune.
