Swan Dive

Swan Dive captures pivotal moments in meaningful lives and features the inspiring stories of people who had the clarity and courage to chase their dreams and visions. Hosts and life-long friends, Ron Rothberg and Stu Sheldon, both made their own swan dives from successful careers in media and finance to the unknowns of content creation and fine art. Through their journeys, both found their true voices and, with Swan Dive Podcast, they dive deep into the big pivots of their myriad guests. From Africa's first black, female neurosurgeon to legendary performing artists, storied sea captains, NPR hosts, National Geographic photographers and so much more, each dynamic guest opens up about the unique emotional trials and the triumphs of becoming their most authentic selves. Wisdom, vulnerability and inspiration abound. Hopefully, you'll find comfort and kinship in your own big pivot, whether you've made it yet or not.
