    the fight for our reproductive rights, getting old girls on the road, andshowing heart as a female heart surgeon

    In epsiode 68 Jo Stanley welcomes guest co-host, journalist and presenter, Mignon Stewart, as together they bring the critical and the creative.
    Women in the United States are fighting for their reproductive rights, with a nationwide march planned on Sat 14 May. We’re joined by filmmaker Rachel Feichter, to share what the battle is like on the ground, what overturning the Roe V Wade ruling means and why she worries that her daughters will grow up with less rights than she did.
    Then Tracey Walker, doco maker and creator of the creative project and youtube series 'old girls on the road' talks about her love of vintage cars and how she's brought women together to celebrate their old girls with chrome bumpers as they hit the open road, and what the freedom of a car means.

    making new adult friends, saying what's in your heart before it's too late, why 'Independent's day' has arrived & creating a sisterhood in a little blue shed.

    It's Ep 65! This week, co-hosts Serpil Senelmis and Cal Wilson connect over the idea of the difficulty of making friends as an adult, and how special it is when you can! They also talk about what it's like being back stage at a big event like the BAFTAS, after Cal was there writing jokes for Rebel Wilson not that long ago!
    But this episode is really about bringing you the women stories of change-makers.
    We talk to writer, Broadcaster and all round chick we want to make our bestie, Marieke Hardy about the power of saying what you’d like to say, to the people you love, while you can and how much power is in that process. She's the co-creator of the spoken word performance 'Better Off Said: Eulogies For The Living And The Dead' and reminds us all that words matter.

    And well it's election time we talk topical, with Independent candidate for Bradfield (NSW), Nicolette Boele, who tells us why this election has become ‘Independent’s Day’ why she's running for parliament and how in a vibrant democracy there's no such thing as a safe labor or liberal or anything seat!.
    https://www.nicoletteboele.com.au/
    Finally, we find out how we can help women in Uganda gain skills and employment, supporting their families, sending their kids to school and creating a better life thanks to Founder of Little Blue Shed, Tanja Curcic, who invites us into her sisterhood. https://www.littleblueshed.info/

    Then Chelsea Bonner, CEO and founder of Bella Management, an agency that has a diverse and holistic approach to model management, and how this year she is behind the first plus sized model cat walk show at Australian Fashion Week.

So worthwhile

The best ideas are when we all say “of course, why didn’t someone think of this before?” Broad Radio is one of those best ideas. Great mix of education (wouldn’t have known what QAnon was before listening, for example - I do now) and supportive, affirming dialogue between funny ladies. Highly recommend adding it to your podcast list.

Awesome podcast

Jo Stanley should be congratulated for putting together a great list of women for women by women. Broad Radio is an awesome podcast and should be at the top of any podcast list!
