Dear all,

Many well-deserved tributes to Marilyn Cade have flowed in on the IGF webpage.

I do not want this post to come across as self-promotion, so I am sorry if it does come across that way.

However a few weeks back, I interviewed Marilyn Cade for my Internet governance history podcast but the episode had not yet been scheduled to stream. I have uploaded it today to [Apple Podcasts](https://podcasts.apple.com/de/podcast/marilyn-cade-on-the-formation-of-icann/id1521285039?i=1000498008728&l=en) and [Spotify](https://open.spotify.com/episode/2CqwDjmDoNKuhYePaOCZfU?si=tuypm1eYQgW8sxxlNQ_r-A).

In this two-hour conversation, Marilyn Cade was reflective on her (many) accomplishments and spoke to her leadership style as well as to how she killed two WIPO treaties and her involvement in different multilateral institutions. She primarily spoke about the early days of ICANN and her instrumental role in forming the organization.

Again, I’d rather not advertise my podcast, but Marilyn was/is a brilliant storyteller and I think some people would enjoy hearing her reflections.

There is also a [transcript available here](https://www.powerplays.xyz/podcast/s1-e4). I typed it up, so any errors in the transcript are mine and I will gladly correct them if you let me know.

While never identifying as a member of civil society, Marilyn Cade was an advocate for the interests of civil society and believed strongly that neither government nor businesses alone should determine how the Internet is governed.

Best wishes,

Ayden Férdeline
