Without getting political, it’s kind of a tough time to be a woman in America.
But now more than ever, women need to hear and tell each other’s stories. We want to listen to women talk about what they’re doing and how they’re changing their communities. We know it happens all over Pittsburgh, but women aren’t always recognized for their work.
They just do the work.
With the Broadcast Podcast, we’re hoping to amplify (literally) the voices of women who are doing that crucial work, of raising awareness, fighting inequality and otherwise changing the world. Podcasting is very dude-centric (especially here in our fair city), so there’s plenty of room for women to make strides.
And fortunately, we know a few awesome women…
