About the Podcast

Erik Requidan and Kerel Cooper started Minority Report Podcast in May of 2018 as a way of highlighting people of color, women and LGBTQ+ communities within business, media, and technology. Since that time we have created one of the largest catalogs of leaders who share insights and experiences gained throughout their personal and professional journeys.
