Welcome to the 239th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

This week at Inc. we launched the October issue, featuring our second annual list of 100 Female Founders building the country's most innovative and ambitious companies. Inc. editor-at-large Maria Aspan explains the work that went into creating the extensive and diverse list--and some of the standouts included in it.

I'm Christine Lagorio-Chafkin, and for the next segment, I explain the story behind our historic cover, in which Audrey Gelman, the chief executive of women's co-working business The Wing, is photographed roughly eight months pregnant. What's fascinating: We believe this is the first time a visibly pregnant CEO has ever appeared on the cover of a major business magazine. And inside my profile of Gelman and the fast-growing business she's built are some intriguing revelations about how The Wing has set in place a plan to scale beyond its physical locations in the future.

Finally, we are joined by Keith Kirkland, the founder of WearWorks, which makes haptic navigation devices. He and his co-founders have been working on touch-based communications for four years, and helped the first blind person run the New York City marathon in 2017. Now he's launching an audacious new concept--and explains how he'll participate in mentorship as part of Inc.'s Founders Project.
