Episode At a Glance: Making MasterClass

Kim and Jason co-founded the company Radical Candor five years ago because they believe Radically Candid communication is foundational for success at work and in everyday life.

Radical Candor is thrilled to be part of Sessions by MasterClass to bring this leadership masterclass to millions of MasterClass members. Ezra Rose and Davis Carter, as well as countless others, helped us breathe new life into Radical Candor!

Ezra is a filmmaker living on Lenape land, otherwise known as New York City. They often focus on stories of queer and trans community, experiences of disability, and historically suppressed voices. Between 2018 and 2023, Ezra worked with MasterClass as a coordinator, Associate Producer, Creative Producer, Director, and Interviewer, proudly contributing to classes with people like Roxane Gay, Robin Roberts, Madhur Jaffrey, and the Radical Candor team! While at MasterClass they served two years as co-chair of the LGBTQIA+ employee resource group where they were able to use their organizational skills, education in LGBTQIA+ issues, and their personal experience as a proud queer and trans person in the world to serve their community. They are currently working on a film about the rich history of trans community newsletters.

Davis is a storyteller based in San Francisco. He is currently the Head of Content at the psychedelic therapy company, Mindbloom. Before that, he was a Director of Content at MasterClass where he worked for over 6 years. At MasterClass, he oversaw more than 20 projects including classes with former President Bill Clinton, Metallica, Amy Tan, and of course Kim Scott and Jason Rosoff. In a past life, he worked in film and television and contributed to FX’s Emmy-Award Winning Fargo, Hulu’s Emmy-Award Winning The Handmaid’s Tale, and The History Channel’s Vikings.
