MGT53: Digital Tomorrows - Kiran Gandhi, Yvette Nimako
By Andrew Apanov (Dotted Music)
This podcast episode is a part of a series of features from the Future of Music Policy Summit 2015, covered by Dotted Music’s Josh Urban and Cory Wolff. Read an introduction to today’s WeSpin Recipes conversation from Josh below: Kiran Gandhi didn’t need sleep. She hadn’t seen any in a long, long time, but that didn’t seem to diminish her magnetizing intensity. The drummer, Harvard MBA, Georgetown graduate, feminist, public speaker, and ideas lady stood backstage at Georgetown University after her feature talk on the value of data, strategizing with Yvette Nimako, manager of US operations for the Global Shea Alliance. I waited off to the side, reporting on the Future of Music Coalition’s annual policy summit in Washington, DC. “Would you be willing to come speak to my class sometime?” one of her alma mater professors asked, to which she agreed. Another colleague leaned in for a hug. Things quieted down a bit, and both women graciously agreed to an audio interview. Without further ado, here’s our conversation about the music industry, creativity, women in business, and thoughts on the question: Can the world can be saved?
