Mangesh Hattikudur wants to make your favorite show! He believes (strongly) that podcasts can be engines for empathy and that pop culture can change culture. As president and co-founder of Kaleidoscope Studios, a little podcast start-up, he's focused on telling gripping, true stories from across the globe. Prior to Kaleidoscope, Hattikudur headed up podcast development as senior vice president for iHeartMedia, where he got to launch and build the New York studio, greenlight critically acclaimed shows (Somebody, Hit Man, Sleepwalkers, Forgotten: Women of Juarez), collaborate with wonderful personalities (from Minnie Driver to Mayor Pete), work with incredible brands (Buzzfeed's Impeachment Today, Vice News Reports), and even dominate the charts (at one point, his team's shows with Hilary Clinton and journalist M. William Phelps were the #1 and 2 shows in the country). Before that, Hattikudur ran creative for Mental Floss, a beloved print magazine and media company he co-founded in college and ran for 17 glorious years.
About the Series
The goal of Leading Change: Perspectives from Outside of Medicine "Conversation Series 2021" is to help attendees think about ways to improve "the patient experience" at Johns Hopkins by learning from experts in other fields and disciplines. The lectures are open to all members of the Johns Hopkins community. In order to allow for an open exchange between the speaker and the audience we will not record or broadcast the lecture.
