Bring more women into podcasting
Podcasts are a great space for women’s voices to flourish. If you don’t want to get over-talked on a panel, ot you’re not fond of defending your expertise on Twitter, podcasts are a terrific place to share ideas with the guests you choose for the benefit of a passionate and supportive community.
Here are some additional fun facts about women’s voices:
- Did you know people* have a lot to say when it comes to women’s voices?
- It’s true! Women get lots of complaints about vocal fry, sounding too authoritative or bossy or just not quite credible or too credible or anything else you can possibly dream up.
- Perhaps if there were more women’s voices in podcasting, people** would get used to more women’s voices, and we wouldn’t fixate so much on how women sound, and focus more on what they’re saying.
- It’s just a theory.
*Not always men! But often men!
Never miss a deadline
- Our clients depend on us. We try not to let them down.
- When we fail, we try again.
- Getting pre-approval to move a deadline is the lifeblood of all work and is entirely acceptable.

Pass on what you have learned…
Yoda said it best. But also, I learned everything I know about podcasts from Tom Merritt, a podcast pioneer, who believes that information should travel freely through the internet whenever possible. And since he was such a good teacher, we follow his example.
