We like to tell people we’re the only podcast in Pittsburgh that passes the Bechdel test in every episode.
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.
Inclusivity and diversity are key to our mission, so tell us who we should talk to. Who are the women who inspire you with their words and actions? How can we help tell their stories and bring some recognition to their work?
