Bonus Episode: International Women's Day 2022
Show Notes

In this bonus episode, we celebrate International Women's Day 2022 by taking a look back at some of the inspirational female guests we've interviewed. 

These women have all made their mark in the cultural industry despite the many hurdles they've had to face throughout their personal lives and careers. The food industry, the world of TV and taking to the stage as a comedian are all areas typically dominated by males, however I've chosen snippets from our interviews that show how females are turning things around. 

During this episode, you'll hear excerpts from our interviews with;

  • Nisha Katona - TV chef, entrepreneur and CEO/founder of Indian street food restaurant, Mowgli
  • Gemma Bodinetz - theatre director and former artistic director of Liverpool Everyman Playhouse
  • Jo Caulfield - comedian and writer
  • Dawn Airey - former managing director for Global (ITV), former CEO of Channel 5 & Getty Images
  • Janice Long - former broadcaster and the first female presenter of Top of the Pops

You can find the full interviews with each of these inspirational women and many more episodes on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and many more podcasting platforms.
