Today, on our latest episode of the Cassandra Podcast, Cassandra welcomes Naomi Shah, the founder and CEO of Meet Cute, a media company that produces modern, scripted rom-coms. What started as an audio series — think “Sleepless in Seattle” reimagined for Gen Z and in podcast form — has recently expanded into video and written stories as well. Naomi talks with us about the value of feel-good storytelling, the importance of nuanced storylines, and the shift towards happily-for-nows rather than happily-ever-afters. She also touches on how her startup learned to build trust with their listeners through an emphasis on relatable characters and an inclusivity of all kinds of love. And with February 14 just a few weeks away, our discussion covers trends we’re seeing for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
